Don’t Forget to Have Fun

Having a hard time focusing on your work? Maybe you’re not having enough fun!

Experts say that any change in your regular routine is good for you—whether it’s taking a long weekend away or a simple fifteen minute walk around the block. Not only can it bring a renewed burst of energy, it can actually increase productivity, and make you feel better.

Doctors often say they’ve seen patients with chronic headaches and mood disorders get suddenly better when they return from an extended holiday. That’s because we need variety in our lives in order to function. Doing the same thing day after day with no break isn’t good for anyone.

Having fun every now and then is more than a good idea—it’s critical to a healthy lifestyle. So don’t just sit there—get out and play a little!
