Why Having Fun Is the Secret to a Healthier Life

Can you confidently state that you have fun on a regular basis? Or are you running on fumes when it comes to entertainment, preoccupied with work and leaving no time for play?

Journalist Catherine Price gave a TED talk discussing how in a world where people are always on the go, it's important to have more fun.

She explains that fun is not an activity, it's a feeling that's created by playfulness, connection, and flow. Fun is a "radiant" feeling that creates a sense of light and joy, making people feel more alive.

Regularly having fun makes people more present, united with others, and healthier, reducing the risk of illnesses associated with loneliness and stress.

Catherine suggests reducing distractions, interacting with others more often, and focusing on those three key ingredients to have more fun in life.

Having more fun is important to live a healthier, happier life. Catherine’s TED talk can help you change your lifestyle and adopt her sage advice.
