When I was a child I never wanted to grow up, because I felt grownups were way too serious. Now that I’m a grownup, I feel like I’ve lost that childlike sense of playfulness in my day to day life. Having kids definitely brings it all back, but often-times I feel the pressure of my grownup commitments and forget that being silly, jumping, giggling and playing make believe are better than therapy.
Studies show that when kids ask us to play with them, it’s their version of saying “can we have a chat? I need to unload.” Why should it be any different for grownups?
Having more fun can also help you connect with your inner child. Fun is contagious and being silly and carefree can help you loosen up and free your body, mind and spirit.
We can get so bogged down in work that we forget to have fun! So I invited the queen of fun, Angela Counsel onto the show to share her story about starting a movement to encourage women business owners and entrepreneurs to have more fun so that they can open up to creativity and avoid burnout. If you want to live a more possible life, fun is an essential ingredient. Listen in to today’s show to find out more.
Angela Counsel is a naturopath and author of no. 1 Amazon Bestseller Secret Mums Business – Create the Business and Lifestyle of Your Dreams. Angela works with women entrepreneurs who are stressed and overwhelmed and the creator of the Entrepreneur’s Playdate, an event designed to help budding women business owners entrepreneurs have more fun and avoid burnout.
- Creativity comes from fun.
- Take yourself on a date and just have some fun.
- If you’re not functioning at your best, it all starts to break down.
- It is such a hard journey back from a place of burnout.
- “I’ve always wanted to do this but I never have the time” — what most women say when they attend Angela’s events.
- Angela made the way she marketed her events fun, so that she could practice what she was preaching.
- When you are having fun marketing your business, it sends this energetic wave out there.
- If you’re not feeling it, it doesn’t come across as genuine
- Bottom line: When you’re into something, it comes across as meaningful
- Just because someone says to do something in a certain way, doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you. Do things in a way that is genuine for you (and fun).
- Do what makes you come alive and then people will get that.
- Music can change the way you feel.
- Do things that put a smile on your face.
- Most people lose their creativity as they grow up because part of growing up is to get serious, get a job and work hard.
- Children don’t have limits and fears like adults have.
- We bring back our world of imagination by having fun. Mentions E2 and E3 by Pam Grout https://pamgrout.com/.
- When you’re sitting in the moment thinking of everything that’s going wrong, you’re not open to possibilities because you can’t be creative.
- How exciting is that to look at the world through the eyes of a two year old. We can do that every single moment if we just get rid of the baggage in our heads.
- We’re born with creativity where anything is possible.
- If you’re in business, it can’t just be all about the work. It will just burn you out.
