In a recent study by the Trident Fun Index, Americans were found to be lacking in their moments of fun. Nineteen (19%) even said they couldn't remember the last time they had fun. The reasons given included lack of money and time.
While the word "fun" needs to be defined better to further understand the findings, it does highlight the need for change in our thinking. These moments of fun are crucial to reviving our motivation and even recharging our physical bodies (think about how you feel after a good laugh). Leaving them out of our day decreases the resources we have to deal with the challenges in our life that are not considered fun.
Eighteen percent (18%) of the respondents even said they didn't do anything fun on a daily basis. What about you? What are you planning on doing today that you would consider fun? Leaving it out of your day is just setting you up for less than blue ribbon results.
