Are You Experiencing FDS?
Today we fight the perils of FDS: Fun Deficiency Syndrome.
In these uncertain times, our energy and focus can get sucked into what is wrong, what we can’t control, and how unfair life can be. Our work has changed. Our family routines have changed. Our social connectedness has changed. And we have become susceptible to Fun Deficiency Syndrome.
During this crisis, we can’t lose sight of the things that are positive, the connections that we are blessed with, or the need to be grateful and enjoy what we do have.
We need to use our IMAGINATION. We need to relearn how to PLAY. And we need to learn how to LET GO.
Beverly’s Hot Tip For Building Your Resiliency and Celebrating National Fun Day:
Even with physical distancing and social isolation, do something fun today – anything – but don’t let the day pass without having some fun!
Cheap, But Fun Things To Do
Money shouldn’t determine the level of fun. There are lots of fun things to do that don’t require any money at all.
Play dress up or make-believe with your kids. Go and ride your bike. Take a walk at the beach or along a nature trail and see what spring has to offer. Play catch or Frisbee with your dog.
Today is also National Deep Dish Pizza Day – how about having the kids make their own pizzas today – that could be fun and probably not too messy!
Remember that fun includes happiness, amusement, exhilaration, laughter and joy.
We love to have fun. We need to have fun. When we are having fun we forget ourselves and the difficult circumstances around us. However, we lose our sense of fun if we do not nourish it regularly.
Fight Fun Deficiency Syndrome. Wishing you fun!
