What a great title – Fun at Work Day – how fabulous to have an international day dedicated to having fun at work, but how sad that we only focus on it one day a year!
I would like to see people making sure they have aspects of fun in their working lives everyday, whether they are working at home, working and looking after their families, or going out to work. Having fun has an incredible affect on our health. It is a well known fact that children learn the most when they are having fun at the same time. And we are, after all, just big children!
Having fun boosts creativity, stimulates our imagination and gives us a sense of achievement. Releasing endorphins gives a natural feeling of euphoria and time seems to pass more quickly.
So I challenge you to make time for fun every day not just once a year, and notice how great you feel.
