Stop Taking Yourself So Seriously and Dance Wherever You Are!

Adulting can feel like a relentless marathon sometimes, with bills to pay and responsibilities to juggle, but amidst all this seriousness, there's a beacon of hope: the chance to break free and reclaim the joy of being a kid again.
Stop Taking Yourself So Seriously and Dance Wherever You Are!

Fenix’ PepTalk

Did you know that I’m not the only one in my family that dances wherever I am.

My Mum and Dad also like to dance… in Trader Joes, in the kitchen, in the car… 

Life is really not that serious. And noone cares that much about if you’re taking it seriously or not.

So let yourself be a little more free today… let yourself have some fun ok!

Being an Adult Sucks

Sometimes, navigating through the labyrinth of adulthood can feel like trying to untangle a particularly knotted ball of yarn. The weight of responsibilities and the incessant pressure to constantly perform can make even the most mundane tasks seem like Herculean feats. It's as if we're constantly balancing on a tightrope, juggling the demands of work, relationships, finances, and personal growth.

But amidst this chaos, it's important to remember that we don't always have to be in full-on "adulting" mode. We don't always have to be pushing ourselves to the brink, meticulously planning every aspect of our lives, and carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders. In fact, sometimes the most liberating thing we can do is to let go of that mindset, even if just for a moment.

Today's guide serves as a gentle reminder to give ourselves permission to breathe, to step back, and to loosen the reins of control. It's about finding moments of reprieve in the midst of the hustle and bustle, allowing ourselves the freedom to indulge in a little spontaneity, a little frivolity, or simply a little bit of nothing at all.

So, whether it's treating yourself to a leisurely afternoon stroll in the park, indulging in your favorite guilty pleasure without a hint of guilt, or simply relishing in the joy of doing absolutely nothing, let today be a day of liberation. Free yourself from the shackles of adulthood, if only for a moment, and rediscover the simple pleasures of being alive. After all, life is too short to be spent in a perpetual state of seriousness.

A Step by Step Guide

Having Fun Like a Kid Again

So much of what holds us back from our fun and happiness is the internal push, pressure and planning of being an adult. 

Of course that’s what comes with being an adult right – responsibilities and the need to plan and handle life. But we don’t need to be in that mindset of pushing, planning and being responsible for our lives ALL the time.

You will need: • A few hours where your adult responsibilities are handled

• An open mind and an open heart • Optional: Post-it or piece of paper, and pen

  1. It might take some time and thinking, to truly make sure all your responsibilities for a few hours are handled, but do that, and then turn off your phone, if you can. Remember this is only for a few hours. Get in touch with the important people in your life if you need to to let them know you’ll be offline.
  2. Great job! Give yourself a huge pat on the back! That’s a huge win, even to just give yourself permission to take a few hours off adulting.
  3. Now this can be the tricky part. The adult in you may keep unconsciously pushing you around, pressuring you and reminding you of all your plans and responsibilities. If that happens, it’s time to write yourself a permission slip.Write on a post-it or piece of paper: I, ___your name___, hereby declare, that I am granted 100% permission to do whatever I want for the next 3 hours. I also do joyfully declare, that I’m allowed to have oodles and schnoodles of fun. Signed, ___your signature___
  4. Now do what you want. Breathe. Relax. And enjoy the few hours of complete freedom.

From Dr. Zoë

With everything going on in the world, I've been reflecting on the importance of finding joy in the simple things and embracing a sense of playfulness like we did when we were kids.

Remember those carefree days of endless laughter and fun adventures? Well, I think it's time we bring some of that magic back into our lives! Whether it's exploring new hobbies, revisiting old childhood games, or simply letting loose and being silly, there are countless ways we can recapture that youthful spirit.

I propose we set aside some time to indulge in activities that make us feel alive and carefree. How about a nostalgic game night with classic board games or a spontaneous trip to the nearest amusement park? We could even plan a picnic in the park complete with homemade sandwiches and kite flying!

The beauty of embracing our inner child is that it reminds us to not take life too seriously and to cherish every moment. So, let's make a pact to prioritize fun and laughter, even if it means stepping out of our comfort zones and being a little unconventional.

I'm excited about the prospect of rediscovering the joy of being kids again with you, and I can't wait to see where our adventures take us!

We love you. Fenix and Zoë 🤗
