Relaxing, Having Fun, and Letting Go February 26, 2009

I came across this interesting article on the LiveStrong web site – Lance Armstrong’s Foundation for fighting cancer. It is rather long, but I think it has some useful content. The problem is that when you are stressed and not able to find time for fun things, what makes you think you can find time to read an article about it?

So, I thought I would take a small section out that I thought was a good taste of what you can find. The article takes a very personal six step approach to the problem. See if you can answer these questions:
1) What is fun (for you)?
2) What are some barriers to (you) having fun?
3) What beliefs are barriers to (you) having fun?
4) What are some strategies (to get you) to have fun?
5) What are some creative samples of fun activities (for you)?
6) What steps can increase the fun in your life?

The whole article is quite detailed and almost rigid, which to me takes the fun out of having fun. In the end, you have developed a chart that lists all the activities and can document when you have fun. But it may work some people, especially when you are in a depressed state and need a way to work out of it.
