Do you like having fun? Do you find it easier to learn, retain information, or complete challenging or mundane tasks when you’re having fun?
We all love having fun!
Tasks appear to be easier to learn and complete when we’re having fun. The opposite is true when we aren’t. I get it. I’m all for having fun! Everything seems easier when you’re having fun.
There is a quote,
“Sadness is all work, no play.”
This is so true when learning to hula hoop.
When I am not having fun, it’s hard to be motivated to learn a new hooping trick.
This clearly looks like someone who is not having fun.
Sometimes when we’re not having fun and the tasks or activities feel more like a chore, i’s also when most of us feel like giving up or quitting altogether.
I have certainly felt that way many times when practicing a hooping trick. Especially when the trick felt more like a chore than just having fun.
I have certainly felt that way in many areas in my life apart from hooping too.
The trick I learned from practicing my hooping trick is to have fun.
Another great quote is
“Laughter is the best medicine.”
Laughter helps to release tension, so it’s okay to laugh at yourself and at your mistakes!
Sometimes I stop what I’m doing, stop my practice, and jump through the hoop as if it were a jump rope.
Sometimes I just start dancing with my hoop in any (crazy) style because it makes me smile and laugh when I’m just jumping or dancing with my hoop.
Learning and completing tasks or whatever the activities might be is always easier when you’re having fun and have a sense of enjoyment.
That is why we enjoy vacations so much and I don’t think anyone ever complained about a vacation where they had fun.
People complain about vacations when they didn’t have fun. Like if the vacation felt more like a chore because there was one big challenge after another, or it felt like work and therefore unrelaxing.
The moral of this story is…
Have fun! When we have fun, the challenging activities or mundane tasks won’t feel like such hard work.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I laugh at myself all the time. I can see the humor in most situations even when things don’t work out or when I make mistakes. Laughter is my stress reliever. It reminds me to have fun, and realize not everything is all bad or doom and gloom.
Laugh often. Learning, completing challenges, or finishing mundane tasks goes by faster when you’re having fun. Another quote for you before I go, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” All tasks get done before you know it when you’re having fun.
Time sure flew while I wrote this blog story. I hope you enjoyed reading this blog story as much as I enjoyed and had fun writing it!
