Am I the only person who’s noticed people out having more fun?
Now that the weather is nicer (and the past two years of anxiety are fading), it’s leading to some pretty cool creativity in that life category I call: Having Fun.

So here’s a question: why doesn’t everyone proactively make time for fun? 

If the past two years made you realize you need to slow down and enjoy life again, here’s three tips about adding Fun:

• Don’t put it off. What would you do all day long if you had all the time and money in the world? Decide what “fun” means to you, then start investigating ways to introduce more of it into your life. Make the process of discovery fun, too.

• Plan daily, annual and once-in-a lifetime fun. Find small ways to have fun every day. Then plan something bigger once a year. And for true life-changing fun, write your “bucket list” of once-in-a-lifetime experiences you want to enjoy. Work on making those happen – whether it’s saving the money, connecting with the right people, training for it, or something else.

• Unplug completely. When you’re having fun, don’t ruin it by thinking about the 20 other things you should be doing right now. Fun is an important task, too.
Have you noticed over my last few posts that we’ve been talking about building a solid life—then adding plentiful, affordable and guilt-free fun? Oola’s authors Dave Braun and Troy Amdahl created a simple formula that helps people have a life of less stress, more happiness, and greater purpose. Not surprisingly, it’s the kind of life that also brings calm and certainty in an uncertain world.

It’s what the Oola lifestyle taught me, and it’s what I help others do as a Certified Oola Life Coach. Two of my favorite activities to completely unplug is to visit one of the local mountain areas and hike to see some amazing waterfalls, or go to a beach and take a walk along the surf feeling the sand between my toes. Both of these options give me the chance to connect to my teenagers without distractions of their phones or gaming devices. We are all present and focused on the enjoying the moment which allows us to make some amazing memories together.

Are you ready to transform your life, your finances, your relationships and more? If you need to turn your uncertain world into a life that rocks. I’m here for you. 

Keep up the great work of adding more Fun!
