There are so many posts out there in the blogging world about how to be an “adult” (I’ve even posted some). List of things you HAVE to do and things you MUST do… but what about things you WANT to do?
I’m talking pure, childish, innocent fun that makes you laugh until your abs hurt! We all need a bit of this sprinkled into our exhausting adult lives.
It’s important to succeed, to push yourself, and to master your A-game. But sometimes you just need to shut down the adult side of your brain and be a kid for a bit.
I work for an amazing branding firm in DC (seriously, I love my job). Last week we closed down the office for the day and went to an adventure park just for fun. Yes, a full day of grown adults climbing like monkeys through trees, screaming and laughing, and forgetting every worry and concern in the world. It was a much needed day of fun that my inner child loved.
When was the last time you acted like a kid? Had ice cream for breakfast? Laughed until you cried? Ran around the yard? Played a game? This weekend, take a few hours (or if you’re an overachiever, a whole day) and do something your inner child would love to do!
