In between incessantly organising our to do lists, our careers and our families are the moments when we lose ourselves and have genuine fun.
Back in this post, I pointed out that many of us have neglected to include fun in our every day and quite a few of you asked how I bring enjoyment into my day to day life.
I’m a big fan of lifestyle coach Sarah Jenks and she inspired me to make a list carved into categories (yes, you can be organised and controlling even with your fun list!).
I’ve got a few regular activities that I swear by week to week (I try a new cafe for lunch each Monday, on Tuesdays I take a pilates class then go on date night) but it’s good to have this list to refer to when I’ve got some free time or more importantly, when I’m feeling in a slump.
I hope you can steal some ideas from my list for your own lives and let me know in the comments below if you have some great ideas I might be missing!
- Get a massage
- Take a bath
- Get a mani pedi
- Buy fresh flowers
- Walk outside
- Have a date night
- Go for a picnic
- Plan a weekend getaway
- Go cycling
- Go for a sunset walk
- Call a friend
- Visit a museum or exhibition together
- Cook a BBQ for friends
- Go for brunch
- Visit a rooftop bar after work
- Go hiking
- Wear a new outfit or makeup look
- Go bowling (my idea of adventure - haha)
...OK, I definitely need some new adventure ideas
