Fun is underrated. I tend to treat it as something that I like having, but isn’t that “useful” otherwise.
Story time: A couple of days ago, I was having a low day, as evidenced by my last post. But rather than lay in bed and do nothing, I chose to do something that sounded fun at the time: attempting to make Yorkshire Pudding. (I’ve been learning to cook. It turned out a bit salty.)
Within an hour, my emotional state had improved greatly and I accomplished a lot more that night than I otherwise would have. Perhaps fun is a good gauge of how to spend your time.
