Variety is more
than just the spice of life; it expands our experience and makes our lives more
fulfilling. You don’t have to do anything extravagant to experience a little
variety in your life. Let go of the reins a bit and see where the ride takes
you. Meeting new people, finding a poem, or a reviving a dormant talent carry
benefits that extend far beyond breaking out of the mundane.
many of us are bound to tight, overwhelming schedules that leave little room
for novelty or adventure. The good news is that making your life more
interesting is easy if you are willing to make small departures from the norm. As
a member of a Red Hat Chapter you are guaranteed that your social activities
will be varied and lots of fun.
Life without fun and games isn't just dull—it's downright unhealthy. Research has shown that when women get out there and play, the benefits are amazing. They cope better with stress, which sets up protective mechanisms that contribute to health and well-being. And if they play with others, it creates bonding and they get the benefit of social support, as well. Just as we know play is healthy for children, helping them blow off steam, learn, experiment, and make friends, it has been found the same to be true for adult women.
Have you forgotten the definition of fun? Here's one: "Anything that connects us with our childlike energy and joy counts as fun.”
Why do some of us put off the most creative, fantastic, mood-enhancing thing in our lives? Fun that is. Fun means finding novelty in the suffocating familiarity of ordinary life. Every now and then if you try, you can discover something new.
Some people see fun as trivial, unworthy,
disreputable. Having fun is not a diversion from a successful life; it is the
pathway to it.
Many ladies around Australia will be once again be
feeling a renewed sense of frivolousness and will immerse themselves in the
magic of Red hatting for another year.
Some chapters will no doubt find some different activities to try and recapture that sense of wonder by visiting somewhere they have never been before, or doing something the group have never done. Trying something new and exciting this year will guarantee it is one to remember.
