You know you want and need more fun in your life. When the fun stuff does happen it’s so awesome that you vow you will make time for more of it but you don’t seem to be making it happen.
Days turn into weeks, then months, then years and you wonder where your time goes. Don’t want to be one of those people that always complains about not having enough time? ‘I can’t believe where time goes’ will always be in your vocab until you make some changes.
Change doesn’t just happen. Change happens in small steps.
Absolutely – you can dream big and aim high, just start with small changes. Research gurus have proved that writing things down means you are 80% more likely to get them done. That’s massive. Eighty percent more likely to get stuff done if you write it down! That’s an 8 in 10 chance.
Find a system that works for you and get writing;
- a hand written diary
- an online calendar
- a bit of both
- a notebook
- whatever system works for YOU
Schedule time to schedule! Sounds a bit weird but if you don’t do it, the things that you want more of in your life won’t happen and I know you want more. You really want change but everything seems to stay the same. Time after time.
‘If nothing changes, nothing will change.’
Take a moment (put the timer on for 5 minutes) to write a list of what the fun stuff is in your world. What you want more of. Make it handy and easy to access. Notes on your phone/ front of your diary/ a list on your desk. Look at it often!
Now you know what you want more of – make time for it in your schedule. I can pretty much guarantee this will make you
- Super productive to smash that ‘to-do’ list (schedule that too)
- A heap of fun to be around
- More relaxed and chilled
- A seeker of adventure
You’ll be left with an awesome sense of achievement at the end of each day. AND at the beginning of the day you’ll have something to look forward to. EVERY day.
Here’s some examples of a ‘fun stuff’ list;
Listen to a comedy show/Podcast
Bike ride (this is the top of my list)
Dance to a fave song
Sing out loud
Fix something broken
Write to/text someone you love
Spend quality time with a tribe member
Date with self
Do 10 star jumps
Watch the sunrise/sunset
Connect with nature
Watch a movie
Go on a picnic
Read an awesome book
Have a list of ten minute things and a list of things that take longer. The benefits are amazing! Start now, not next monday or after ‘this’ or ‘that’ happens. NOW is the time and you can do it.
Add your ‘fun’ stuff to the list above in the comments below and let’s get the ‘ripple effect’ happening.
And then, get scheduling. It’s profoundly life changing.
