This weekend the fair is in town. My sister and I really weren’t fussed about going, but, for the sake of children we dragged ourselves out for it!
In the end we all had a lovely time. Noah, my 3 year old, persuaded me to go on the Helter Skelter and the House Of Fun with him. I looked a little over aged and a lot over sized but I was so pleased I did it with him.
As we sat on a conveyer belt on the House of Fun we were jolted backwards and forwards and we both giggled as much as each other. It was something that made me properly laugh. The laughing continued as the ride finished because my sister had been watching and was in stitches too.
Having fun is something that seems to become less frequent as we get older. Noah and his cousins are often seen laughing as they fall over together or giggling whilst they are playing games and chasing each other. As grown ups it is easy to forget to be silly yet sometimes it really does do us the world of good.
Having a good laugh is therapeutic, it really gets the endorphins going and gives you that feel good factor. Just remembering it as I write this blog is bringing a smile to my face.
Try putting some fun activities into your day, give yourself time to be a little bit silly. Life will seem so much lighter. When you laugh, really laugh, you are present in the moment. You aren’t worrying about the past or planning the future you are showing an emotion right then and there in the moment, what could be more mindful?!
Come on a Revitalise Day to learn more about mindfulness and meditation. Once you have the tools to be present in the moment everything becomes more enjoyable.
