Fun must be mandatory for everybody, not just for children. Fun activities and adults are compatible. However, most grown-ups have a stiff upper lip or forget how to be happy at all.
How often do you hear people laughing naturally and in a relaxed manner? I do not count fake laughs, then. Then pointless comedy goes on, and you listen to chuckles and loud noises in the background.
I wonder if people who watch TV do not know when the funny situation starts? Maybe somebody else thinks the crowd needs to be pointed in the right direction like cute sheep.
Why do adults laugh less compared with children?
You would tell that children do not have any problems with the mortgage, crazy boss, or the lack of time. Children have fewer duties and more fun. It is true. However, adults have more experience and can plan their lives more carefully.
What do I mean? Adults can set priorities essential for their happiness or endless spinning on the wheel of presumptions, expectations, wants, and needs. Of course, it is not easy to escape from routine and change behavior and lifestyle. Friends and colleagues at work and school influence us. We follow others, and most of them do not know how to be happy or at least have fun.
What is fun?
Fun is lighthearted pleasure, enjoyment, and amusement. Think about it. When you last time had fun? I guess you read that we live once and need to spend time in the most efficient way possible. At the end of life, it will be fun when we think about what we experienced and how we lived and spent time.
I understand fun when I can laugh till my ribs start hurting. Of course, it is an exaggeration, but the joy without the laugh is not complete. At least a mile would be pleasant to spread around when you do something for your enjoyment.
Besides having a great time, fun activities give you a boost and energy. The laugh relaxes you. I read that vitamin C production increases many times at the time of laughter. I need to check it out.
Are you ready for the list of fun activities? There they are.
Do you think that bikes are just for children or teenagers who do tricks and run fast? Everybody can ride one. It is not a big deal. However, you will have fun, improve your health, and change your environment.
It depends on where you live. A crowded city with plenty of cars is not the best option. You can rent a bicycle or bring a bike to the park or somewhere where it is safe to ride.
You will see how your balance improved, your muscles became more robust, and your mood was different from sitting on the couch by the TV.
Think about the TV series or programs that you watched before. Of course, there are good shows, but most of them do not remember the next day. You spend time without meaning.
You would ask what kind of meaning brings the ride on the bicycle.
- You will break the monotony
- You improve the balance
- You will clear your mind because you need to watch where you ride. You can leave your worries back at home.
- You will exercise. More oxygen to your lungs and more blood to your organs will reach when you push the pedals. Different muscle groups work. Your body will tell you thanks and will answer with better health.
- You will meet other people. Maybe you will make new friends.
You do not need to buy an expensive bicycle. There are plenty of second-hand shops, or you can rent at first and see how to do you like this activity.
Trampolines are a fun way to exercise. You jump, and you have fun at the same time. Nothing can be dangerous in having this activity. Sooner or later, you will feel the excitement and will enjoy the process of jumping.
You can listen to music or sing along with the radio. Children are crazy about trampolines. Adults seem like clumsy bears. However, having the proper equipment, you can relax and have fun just jumping.
You can think about how you are a solid man or woman who can jump on the trampoline. Why not? You will see how you will relax and start a smile or chuckle. You will return to the careless time for at least a few minutes. Enjoy it!
Besides, you can improve your health. It is better to jump compared to running. Your joints do not get so much pressure when reaching the ground. You bounce and have contact for a few seconds.
When you run, your feet and joints get the full impact on the ground and are pressed with your weight. When jumping, everything is light: the touch with the trampoline base and bounce does not require effort. It is a fun activity.
Table games are a fun way to spend time with family or friends. It can work as an ice-breaker. It is a lovely transformation to a different environment where you leave dishes, bills, or simple worries away.
Table tennis can be fun too. Despite being a sport, it lets you relax, be active, and have fun.
For example, trivia games prompt you to think and find the correct answer. You do not need to be smart, but you can check how much you know.
The game University Games Smart Ass will engage you and make you laugh even if it is not your turn to answer. You will relax in an environment where everybody plays and tries to find the correct answer.
Do you think you need to have a big porch to hang the swing? It is enough to have a sturdy tree and a good quality swing, and you will have fun as children do.
Why can you not relax as people do in southern states when sitting on a porch and enjoying a view of the street or the surroundings of your house? Do you live in the apartment? No problem. There is an extensive choice of various swings. You can hang it on the balcony or ceiling with a free corner in your living space.
Are you lazy or do not have any mood to move and exercise for un? You can spend quality time watching British TV. Roku box could help to see various shows and movies. Besides it, you can watch on YouTube without paying a dime. Of course, sometimes the quality can suffer, but it is free.
British TV is different and brings the enjoyment of discoveries. Movies and shows have meaning or just let you laugh at real-life situations depicted in these movies and plays.
How about being a Tarzan for a half-hour? It is a different experience when you are safe and can sense the freedom of flying on the zip line from one corner to another.
You need to pay for this fun activity, but you will have experience of experience how it feels to be freely accessible for a while. Instructors will help you with the reparation and securing of belts and harnesses.
Ziplines are generally safe. Think about how it is great to fly over the rainforest canopy.
A picnic is a great way to be outdoors, enjoy food, and have conversations with friends or family. It is fun because you are outside tasting different food and sitting on the grass or the blanket.
Think about how it can be helpful to lie down and watch the blue sky and flying clouds. When you eat in nature, the food is tasty. You do not need fancy meals. Cold meat with tomatoes and bread or smoked salmon with grapes could be the most delicious meal. You can have pizza if you do not have time to cook the meat. Sandwiches work well; you need to improvise a little bit.
Picnics are best in the summertime or when you can be comfortable outside. Changing the environment and having a meal in the park, by the river, or at any convenient and pleasant location can bring pleasant emotions and joy.
Who told you that you could walk barefoot just on the beach? Any clean place where is grass or sand is beneficial for feet. Our feet have plenty of vital points which have connections with organs. You know about acupuncture, do you? It is the same. You get it from nature for free.
Some people like walking barefoot on snow. It is not for me, and I do not see any fun here. When I can take my shoes off and stay on the grass is a pleasure and delight in the summertime. Why? It is a different experience, and the body gets the sweet sensation when leaves and stems tickle the surface of the feet.
Do you remember when you watched it last time, stars? Most of us are immersed in duties and the constant routine of various tasks that we do not feel in our surroundings. Most of us lost touch with nature.
The noise surrounding us, artificial light, and pollution can throw us off balance.
Star watching can be an excellent connection with something more significant than humans. You can feel the touch of the universe and nature.
The countryside is the best place for watching the stars. Maybe you will have a trip with your relatives who live outside the city, or you can drive with friends or family to the national park and spend a couple of nights at most minor and explore the surroundings.
How about watching a movie outdoors? You will manage the film at night, and later on, you can enjoy the stars.
Books can be fun too. You can read the book and be immersed in a different world. You can laugh, travel, and enjoy the main character’s adventures. For example, the novel Three Men In A Boat ( To Say Nothing Of the Dog), written by English writer Jerome K. Jerome is a perfect example of written fun. You can laugh endlessly till your belly hurts.
Books let us forget the outer world and have fun without thinking about the consequences.
Hide and seek
Do you think this activity is just for children? Why adults can not hide somewhere and wait till somebody finds them? The enormous fun would be from the embarrassment and, later on, from the understanding that we still can relax and not worry about what others will think about us. Who cares?
You can play together with your family. Children would have plenty of excitement because most of them see their parents in a serious mode.
If you have time, you can organize the play by choosing any suitable theme for you and your friends. It is a great way to relax and immerse in a different role and be in the changing world for a short time.
You make parodies from Saturday Night Live or pick roles from the movie you want to play.
Make a bet
You do not need to go all way as Mell Brooks did in the movie Life Stinks, but you can use fantasy and deal with one or a few friends and see how it goes. Please do not take it so seriously; I guess something will go in this or another way.
You can do it in a friendly way without offending anybody. For example, you can bet that you will cook a meal that is challenging to make, something like the cake Napoleon. Along the process, you will have fun because you never know what it will be.
What is most important is not to look at everything too seriously. Just relax and enjoy the time with friends or family.
The kite will let you be a child again, physically and mentally. I guess that you can find a park or open space where you can try playing with this heavier-than-air craft. If you could make it by yourself, it would be fun too.
You will forget your problems( if you have them) when trying to lift them in the air and, later on, keep them flying around. You need to move and sometimes run, especially when the wind blows up. It is fun for you and for the spectators too.
Fun activities and adults are compatible. You do not need to be embarrassed when you have fun. Try to remember when you last time did something for the first time. If you know, good for you. I hope that it was a pleasant and exciting activity.
Adults need more joy and laughter in their lives. Sometimes we look severe and stiff as old trees. Why not enjoy life for at least a few hours? Later on, we may escape the wrong decisions we make in a time of despair.
You can try at least something to do for fun. Nobody will punish you. Start with small things, and later, you will see that you want more. With joy and pleasure comes freedom and balance in everything.
