Diving straight away into my list of top 9 ‘fun raisers’ 😂
1. Let the world spin around you!
Try this out. Go to any open space like a park, or a garden or may be the beach. Take out your phone/ iPad. Put your camera on the selfie mode. Hold it in front of you and
SPIN! Yeah SPIN. Spin away.
Precaution: if you spin too long, make sure you have someone to hold onto as an anchor when you’re done spinning 😊 or you may just fall down like I was about to..
This activity, is totally fun! It’s fun to see all those colors blend behind you, fuzz out as the only person in focus is you!
Very much like our life❤️ excellent stress buster, and jumps up your energy better than any energy drink. Your smile quotient goes up too❤️
2. Get wet in the rain
We’re welcoming the monsoons here in Mumbai, so quite relevant to us.
Just yesterday, me n my son, we just allowed the water to soak us. He was thrilled as he easily gets all the time. I left my ‘careful momma’ hat back and just enjoyed the rain with him.
Nature has an easy way of reminding us our true nature.
3. Doodle away!
Doodling, helps us tune in!
There’s absolutely no need for anyone to understand your doodle. It’s yours. All yours to express n feel out.
You can use any medium like paper or canvas, any colors like water colors or crayons or pencils. I use pens generally.
Be my guest and let the artist out!
4. Experiment with your routine!
Just for fun,play with something like your route to work! Just experiment n take a new route, an untried one.
Make a newer version of your ‘signature recipe’ , by adding something new or tweaking it.
Choose something else instead of your regular breakfast option in starbucks😜 or wherever..
Trying something new, is a great way to ‘just be’ and definitely brings fun to the table.
Condition: Leave your ‘judgment hat’ behind and just explore away❤️
5. Karaoke now!
Try this. Just play any song on your music list, play it on speaker mode! And sing along.
If you don’t know the lyrics …EVEN BETTER..
Just do it. Let the singer inside you out. Messing around with lyrics is fun! Especially when your husband jumps into the activity and picks every word you messed..
It’s super fun..
Caution: don’t wait for the right moment ..do it now❤️
6. Find and create ‘YOUR MOVES’ routine.
Wondered, how great artists move n dance so well? Their trick is simple. PRACTICE❤️
Play a track that naturally gets you on your feet, and just move along. I do it in front of my mirror, after I’ve shut the door😛
Just dance along n you’ll see some pattern emerging from your moves. Follow it and you’ll find ‘your move’ right there..
If not, you’ll find yourself happier with your fun quotient sky rocketing
7. Do stuff you hate to do : ONLY for fun..
For me, it’s cooking! An item I absolutely hate. Yet, in the right mood it creates wonders. I recently made some awesome nachos in twenty mins, and surprised everyone including myself.
Do you hate any activity? I think the hatred comes from the ‘lack of choice’
So if you’re forced to do something or have no option of avoiding it, it makes a permanent place on your hate list.
Let go of the judgment to do it! Yet choose it only to raise your fun quotient❤️
Caution: do it only when you really feel like doing it❤️
8. Play with people not from your age group
Either someone older, or younger! Play anything ..
A game of cards,animal dominoes maybe. Scrabble, su doku!!
Me n my hubb used to play a lot of su doku (even though it’s a one person game) as new parents. When our son was tiny, it used to be our fun window ; something we did as soon as he slept for the night.
Took the ‘new parents’ pressure off us.
9. Celebrate away!
Anything that’s not happening according to plan calls for a celebration.
I remember last year, New Year’s Eve, me n my hubby were watching a cool movie at home n then there was a power cut. Luckily for us , our son was asleep. We sat in our room on the floor n ate in candle light ❤️ pretty romantic thing to happen for new years❤️
Remember: the fun element when stuff isnt working your way
Signing off!! Do send us feedback on stuff that is or isn’t working ❤️😍
