I had a zoom catch up with a group of training colleagues today and conference today and we were talking about having fun at work. Sadly lots of us don’t do that. There are also very many people who don’t have fun out of work either. Having fun gives us a high and this makes the world a better place. You can’t feel negative after a good laugh. So my challenge to you today is to find a way to have fun today! Yes – today – don’t put off having fun til tomorrow. To get you started here is a no-cost list of 25 ways to get a natural high, sent from my friend Dot. More to follow soon…
1. Falling in love, even if its only for half an hour with your bus driver.
2. Laughing so hard your cheeks hurt.
3. A hot powerful shower.
4. No queues to enter the supermarket.
5. A special glance from a special person.
6. Getting real mail rather than email.
7. Driving along a great wee road.
8. Hearing your favourite song when you are commuting.
9. Lying in bed listening to the rain or wind outside.
10. Hot towels grabbed off the radiator.
11. Hot chocolate laced with whisky.
12. A hot scented bubble bath.
14. A good conversation.
15. The beach.
16. Finding a £10 note in your coat from last winter.
17. Laughing at yourself.
18. Looking into their eyes and knowing they love you.
19. Midnight phone calls or instant messaging that lasts for hours.
20. Running through sprinklers.
21. Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.
22. Having someone tell you that you’re beautiful.
23. Laughing at an inside joke with friends or colleagues.
