Say Yes

It’s oh so easy to say no to things. For many people, it’s the default response when they’re invited to do something that’s slightly outside of their comfort zone. But what if we changed and began saying yes more often? You’d likely find that you’d have plenty of fun experiences — and meet new friends — just by being a little positive! Of course, you don’t have to say yes all the time, but if you’re flipping between yes and no, it’s best just to say yes and see what happens! 

Take a Trip

It’s nice to be comfortable and in a routine, but from time to time, it can begin to feel a little too familiar and a whole lot less fun than you’d like it to be. Taking a trip is one of the best ways to add a bit of fun and adventure to your life, plus you’ll get all the other benefits of taking a trip, too, such as a more open mind. You don’t necessarily need to board a plane and fly to some far-flung destination; you might find that there’s an interesting place worth visiting within easy driving distance of your house. Whatever you choose, you’ll find that it’s a fun trip that brings plenty of goodness to your life!

Make Your Home Fun

Of course, you can’t always head off on an adventure. You’ll have to spend the majority of your life at home. So why not look at making your house more fun? Most people’s priority is to ensure their property is functional and well-decorated, but there’s value in adding some touches of fun to proceedings, too. What you add to your house will depend on your interests. You could create a games room, outdoor play area, or invest in your home entertainment setup. 

Get Outdoors

In our opinion, not enough people take the time to get out into nature. It’s an excellent place to get your dose of adventure and fun! Plus, there’s no shortage of things you can do. You can go for a fun hike, go camping, take a boat trip, or find a ropes course near you. Whatever you decide, you’ll have an adventure, one that would be impossible to replicate in a city. There are other advantages to getting out into nature, too, including improving your physical and mental wellbeing. 

Fun Hobbies

How you spend your time is going to have a big impact on how much fun you have in life. If you’re just scrolling through Facebook all day, then you can’t expect to be too happy! So why not look at bringing some fun hobbies into your life? There are plenty of options out there. You could take up photography, painting, rock climbing, learn to play an instrument, or anything else. There’s something really magical about diving into a hobby — it’s one of those things that can really enhance your life.

Surround Yourself With Fun People

Some people are just fun; there’s no doubt about it. If you spend more time with those people, then you’ll find that you have a great time more frequently. Of course, you can’t just expect other people to entertain you. You have to bring something to the party! But if you find a solid group of friends, then that won’t be a problem. Indeed, perhaps the fastest way to bring some fun into your life is to spend a day with your nearest and dearest, just having a good time.

Listen to Comedy Podcasts

Laughter is the best medicine! If you need to cheer yourself up, look at listening to a comedy podcast. There are thousands out there, so it won’t be too difficult to find one that you like. You might start the podcast a little down and uninspired, but by the time you finish, you’ll probably find that you’ve got a much more positive outlook on life.

Mix Up Your Routine

Diversity is the key to life. If you’re in a routine of always taking the same routes to work, eating at the same places, and so forth, try to mix things up a little. You’ll find that it jolts you into a new way of thinking, and you might just discover something you’ve never seen before! 

Dance it Out

Humans are made for dancing, there’s no doubt about it — it’s been a part of cultures around the world since forever, and the reason that it’s stuck around is that, well, it’s so much fun! Alas, once people reach a certain age, they tend to stop dancing, largely because they don’t find themselves in places where you’re supposed to dance, like a club. However, you don’t need a DJ to dance. You can dance at home just by playing a song you love and dancing around! It’s especially fun to have a dance party with your family. No one ever feels bad after dancing for an hour — they usually feel on top of the world.

Meditating doesn’t sound like the most fun thing in the world, we admit. But it really can help to bring more fun into your life because it enhances your presence of mind. This will help to, first, allow you to acknowledge when you’re having a good time, and second, it’ll help you to identify when you’re slipping into a bit of a funk and need to fill up your happiness levels. It’s easy enough to get started with meditation, much easier than many people realize. Make it a consistent part of your routine, and you’ll likely note that your happiness and fun levels increase!

Be Spontaneous

Finally, remember that while you can structure fun, you don’t have to — in fact, some of the most fun experiences of life are the ones where you end up doing something spontaneously. Life will throw these opportunities in your path all the time, but it’s up to you to accept the offer. If you’re driving around and see a fun fair, then that’s an opportunity to have a good time. There’s a lot of value in blowing off whatever it is that you have to do and just going to have a few hours of fun! 


As we said at the beginning of the article, there’s a lot of value in adding more fun to your life. After all, at the moment, it does feel like things are a lot more serious than they used to be. You can’t always change what’s going on in the world, but you can influence your experience of the world. And if you have a choice — and you do — why not choose the option that’ll make you happier? It’s a no-brainer! So take some of the options we’ve outlined above onboard and try to incorporate them into your life. We promise you won’t regret it!
