23. How to Have More Fun by Scheduling Less Just Breathe with Eileen Fein

    • Health & Fitness

Today’s mini Breathwork meditation is about how to have more fun by scheduling less. A recent study found that we actually have more fun when we are spontaneous versus when we schedule fun time. For a type-A like me this was hard to accept so I really dug in to read what these researchers found and it was a big Ah-Ha. 

Why? Because when we schedule fun our mind does what it always does, it files it into a neat folder of to-dos. And what fun is that?

The researchers note that, "the focus on productivity is so widespread that people even strive to make leisure productive and brag about being busy.” Sound familiar? Think Instagram and Facebook picture perfect posts!

In addition to adding spontaneity into our lives, another piece of advice the researchers offered is to stop trying to fit so MUCH into our lives. Think quality over quantity. And the greatest way to do this is connection with other people. Just get together anywhere and start talking and walking and end up someplace....you'll be happier because of it!
