What To Do If Fun Is a 4 Letter Word For You
What to do if you are so used to struggling with life that you have forgotten how to have fun?
You may be unable to go out in the evening - or for that matter the day.
Your funds may be low.
If so, then we are going to think outside the box.
Do Whatever You Want
Do something that feels like a treat. It is all about you having a good time, with your favourite person/people if possible.
Part of this programme is about getting Cavebrain to relax and one of the things that happens when Cavebrain relaxes is you can allow yourself pleasure.
Remember the rule of thumb: treat yourself.
If you are stuck for ideas, or if you feel isolated and cannot think of anyone you could ask to celebrate your date night with, here are some suggestions:
A spa day
An event with your local meetup group. You make the rules so even a morning coffee could be your date night! Have a look at meetup.com to see what is happening near you. I suggest you try a couple of events before date night, because I know from experience that turning up at your first meetup can be nerve wracking.
Invite a few friends round for a meal or games night. A really good quiz I found that has some fun and thought-provoking questions is Shot In The Dark (it’s even teenage sarcasm proof! Meaning it is one of the few ideas I have that my 14 year-old does not find boring/ancient/saddo etc): Have a look at it here.
A day retreat eg yoga, buddhism
A girl’s night out
A cocktail making class
A takeaway and your favourite movie
An evening planning next year’s holiday
Video calling a friend - or friends - who lives a long way away you don’t usually chat to regularly
A session with a personal trainer
