Combating Sadness #2: Get some Hobbies.

So we went over just saying yes to more work projects but how about some fun? Do that too! Every time I join a fun group or start a fun activity it makes me feel so much happier. What are some good ways to have fun?

  1. Start a book club! – With a resurgence of books to movies/shows this is the perfect time to have some of your friends join in with a book club! I just started one with a few friends because of Big Little Lies — that HBO series was SO GOOD, did you know it was originally a book? Next up in our club — The Handmaid’s Tale! It’s also a great way to just get back into reading.
  2. Outdoor activities! – It’s May already! The weather is getting nicer and nicer, how about go for some hikes or if it’s warm go for a swim! Sunshine is known to make you feel happy what with this dispensing of Vitamin D.  Just make sure you apply some sunscreen or else that happy time can turn into a painful one.
  3. Plan a Trip! – Summertime is also known as the perfect time to go on some fun vacations. Plan a beach getaway or visit another country and immerse yourself in their culture. Trips are so much fun because they literally are an escape from your day to day life and there’s so many pro’s — you meet new people, you learn new things, you have so much fun — the only negative is just saving up some time off and money for them.
  4. More clubs! — I mentioned book club because that’s what I do but there are so many others that you can sign up for or create — a running club, a sewing club, a writing club — try going to meetup.com and see if they have any fun meetups and clubs near you.

Here’s just a few ideas, what are some of your hobbies or activities that you like to do to distract yourself from getting mopey?

The Happiest 5k on the Planet.

Yup I did it, one down! One of my goals this year was to do three 5ks and one is done, at least two do go!

My friend Kailey and I ran The Color Run this past weekend and it was so fun!

It was the perfect day because it was cloudy so we didn’t sweat as much but still warm and nice out. It was also a sold out race so we went in waves and it was just crazy, crazy fun!

Next year I want to try and get a group together and make teams because it looked like so fun.

Overall, it was a super fun time, we ran through the parking lot of Dodger Stadium, and got splashed with color. My bathroom blue itself. But it was totally worth it!

Day Eight: Whoopsies.

I know I skipped a day but it was because I had an amazing party that was Village People themed.

Summer 2011 Summary In Pictures.

This summer was one of the best, if not the best summers of my life. It was filled with traveling, friends, making new friends, discoveries, and fun. I’ve been all over, though it was mostly a spicy summer with Mexico, Spain and Portugal. I’ve tried great things and met even greater friends. July sticks out as the best month of 2011 with September definitely in the number 2 spot. Seriously could not ask for a better summer. Hopefully the fall is just as good, probably won’t be because come on what beats summer? But here’s to hoping it won’t be so bad.
