When was the last time you had belly laughing, face-hurts-from-smiling fun? As we get older, we forget this critical part of our life: play. We get stuck in our daily routines and worry about our responsibilities. We spend our time doing things we don’t love; leaving us stuck in an endless loop of boredom. What if I told you that fun is not only good for the soul but it is also essential to your manifestations? In this guide, I’ll share how to incorporate more fun into your life today. Keep reading to learn more.
Define Your Version of Fun
When discussing fun, the first thing that comes to mind to the general population is extroverted, adrenaline-seeking, and loud activities. The problem here is the subscription to the belief that this is the only way to have fun. Fun is determined by the participant. There is no guidebook to fun. Your definition of fun will be different from another and that’s the beauty of it. One’s version of fun might be clubbing, traveling to foreign places, and trying new foods. But another’s might be discovering new shops in small towns, reading a classic book, or watching a beloved play. Take some time here to reflect on what you define as ‘fun.’

Make a More-Of and Less-Of List
When it comes to managing your time, the best thing to figure out first is your priorities. This gives you a chance to discover what’s really important to you. When you look at how you’re spending your time, you will usually uncover a few things you’re doing that no longer bring you joy. This could be a workout routine you loathe, spending too much time in an endless scroll, or ruining your sleep by getting too stimulated before bed. This is where a ‘more-of-less-of’ list comes in handy.
Make a T-chart and label one side ‘more of’ and the other ‘less of.’ Start by brainstorming what you want more of in your life, in terms of fun.
Lunch date with a friend
Weekly date nights with significant other
Fun movement like dance classes
Time to relax and recharge by watching your favorite show
Going to home décor stores and browsing
This is simply the brainstorming phase which means that adding it to the list doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to add these to your calendar. Later you can decide which are most intriguing.
Once you’ve finished your ‘more of’ list. Start adding to your ‘less of’ list.
*TIP: Take a look at what contradicts the life you DO want.
Not seeing your friends often
Not spending quality time with your significant other
Forcing yourself to run
Being overwhelmed because you say ‘yes’ to too many things
Worrying about money and living in a lack mindset
After completing both sides of the chart, you can create a plan of action.
How are you going to incorporate your ‘more of’ list? How are you going to remove your ‘less of’ items from your life?
This is a great time to set up a habit tracker or write plans in your calendar.
How Fun Influences Your Manifestations
If you’re a returning reader, you might be asking why a witchy woman such as myself talk about having fun on her blog mostly about witchcraft and spirituality? Great question. Fun is a key element in your life. It is a part of your divine plan. You were not put here by the Universe to suffer. You are meant to experience joy, learn as much as you can, and experiment. So, by having more fun, you are energetically aligning with the Universe. Furthermore, this greatly influences your manifestations in a positive way. When you live the life you desire, you are attracting more favorable circumstances (i.e. Friends, career opportunities, lovers, etc) into your life.
*TIP: Try incorporating more fun into the area of life that your manifestations are focused on. For example, if you are manifesting work opportunities, how can you incorporate more fun into your career? Maybe take a course on a skill that interests you, bring muffins to the office, or get to know a fun co-worker.
Fun is our version of expressing love for the Universe. It shows that you are enjoying this present moment for all that it is in its most raw form. Using this divine gift, you can not only welcome more joy into your life but also use it to amplify your manifestation practice.
