Tip of the Day - Remember Fun?

Life is filled with deadlines and pressures. The thing is, it's important to balance all that seriousness with a little fun, and there's no better time for fun than now. It's almost summer! So here's a question: have you had any fun lately?

If your answer is no, let's step back for a moment. Can you remember what it is to have fun? If the last time you had some serious fun seems like a distant memory, then take some time today to watch kids. Kids have a great sense of fun. It's not a secret world they live in. It's accessible to you.

What does this have to do with losing weight? Everything! If you're playing, you're more willing to try new things, like new foods, and less likely to take those small fluctuations so seriously. When you're having fun, there's a wonderful feeling of belonging and of having a place in the world. Kids feel like they can do anything, and that's not a bad feeling to have once in awhile.

So, if you're not out having fun, let today be the day you start.

    You know, the same idea came up just yesterday with a friend of mine, talking about his relationships with people. And I said - if it's not making you happy, why are you still doing it? (Meaning be friends with someone)

    But the same is true in this case - living a healthier lifestyle should be about making you HAPPY, not just "skinny". If you're not enjoying yourself, it's work and you're not going to want to do it! So why not play? :)
