If you aren’t enjoying the fruits of your labor, why labor? Makes perfect sense that there should be some fun planned. Working all the time will not save you a dime. In fact, not having fun will cost you more than you would have made.
Without fun in your life, you will live in a perpetual state of stress. A wise man once said “be still”. I find when I take time to do that, everything around me flows smoothly.
This means schedule your vacations in advance. You mean I have to take a vacation? Yes! As I write this to you, I am sitting at the airport returning from one of my monthly trips. However, I still, with less than 5 weeks before Spring Break, haven’t planned the family vacay lol I plan times to get away with my kids and without. We all need that “break”.
What if vacationing isn’t your thing, think of other things that are fun for you. Attending sporting events, concerts, wine tastings etc are all easy ways to have fun without taking up an inordinate amount of time or money.
As a side note, find a few things at home to destress. I grew up playing video games but as an adult have made sure I stay away from them because of their addictive nature. My son turned me on to a game called Retro Bowl and it definitely has provided some fun, and perhaps prolonged the amount of time it’s taken to write this lol.
