I know how to enjoy life. I make having fun a top priority. Having fun makes me happy. I feel content with myself and where I am in life.
Having fun makes me productive. After I take a break to play, I return to my tasks with more energy and creativity. My accomplishments increase.
Having fun makes me fun to be around. I am relaxed and cheerful. I help others to feel comfortable and accepted.
I turn my job into a game by setting up challenges for myself. I take time to share a fun story with coworkers and make plans with them away from work.
I turn my workouts into playtime. I pick activities that are new to me and challenging but not too difficult. I take dance classes or ride horses.
I share a laugh with family and friends. I tell funny stories about my day. I let them know that I appreciate the time we spend together.
I look at the humorous side of challenging situations. I think about how amusing my spouses or children’s antics seem after I have a chance to calm down.
I remain mindful. I pay attention to the interesting and entertaining events that are occuring now instead of becoming stuck in regretting the past or worrying about the future.
Today, I remember to set aside time for fun. I brighten up my life by trying new things and performing random acts of kindness.
