Improve Your Well-Being With 30 Minutes of Fun

It would be impossible to describe the past year as “fun”. However, as we slowly find our new normal, it’s important that we restore the fun in our lives, too-and science agrees. Scheduling 30 minutes of fun each day is great for our well-being. Here’s why.

It may improve your relationship. As we age, we get lost in the day-to-day routine of life and miss out on new opportunities. Partaking in a new activity with your partner that induces laughter is a great place to start.

Fun can encourage movement. Physical activity releases dopamine, serotonin and other feel-good endorphins. Physical movement doesn’t have to be intense-you can try things like gardening, swimming, or a walk around the block.

You’ll laugh more. When we’re having fun, we naturally laugh. It’s long been said that laughter is the best medicine as it’s an antidote to stress. Individuals who laugh frequently tend to show fewer negative feelings in stressful situations.

What “fun” will you be adding to your life this month?
