A Friday vibe is upon us in the house today and it also happens to be Friday. Isn't it interesting how you can usually feel Friday? I think it is the collection of all the vibes people are putting out because they are so happy knowing that the work week is almost done and their play time is almost here. It's a little sad if you think about it. "Everybody's working for the weekend" (Loverboy) rings true for so many. What if we all tried to make it feel like Friday everyday?
Now your question may be this: How do I make it feel like it's Friday everyday?
My answer could be very detailed, but since it's Friday, I'll make it short, sweet and to the point: Laugh more!
I could have answered with things like "Get a new job, stop stressing over the little things, travel more, etc." but I know those things are way easier said than done. They can take some time, so, while you work on those long term fixes to make your life happier, laugh more now.
What makes you laugh and how can you incorporate these things into everyday life?
For me, watching cute animal videos tends to make me laugh. There have actually been studies done on how watching cute animal videos make people happier. You could also try having a conversation with a young child (that can make you laugh for sure), watch a comedic movie or show, go see a comedian perform, or spend time with a funny friend.
While physical exercise is amazing and necessary for your body, exercising your funny bone is necessary too. Make time to do it on a daily basis to help you feel some Friday vibes every day.
Some are a few cute animal videos that make me laugh (of my own animals, of course):
