We measure IQ, EQ, how about FQ or fun quotient? Today is a good day to take accountability of the fun you are having in your life. Think about the amount of time you decide to dedicate to whatever you consider to be fun. You can actually calculate your FQ by keeping track of the number of hours you spend in a week doing things that are fun and then applying that number to the following equation:
______ ÷ 168 hours per week
= ______ Fun Quotient (# of fun hours per week)
Does your number seem high or low? At least taking time to examine your own perception of the fun you are experiencing in your life may lead to a change in your daily activities and planning. Take a look at your calendar and see if you have written or scheduled any fun into your week. Do you think or talk about your fun activities with friends, partner or family?
Jumping for joy fun may not be your goal for fun, just find your groove to enhance the fun in your life. Fun is a counter balance for stress. What form does your fun take; sleep, art, baking, music, exercise, competing in races, travel, playing with your pet, shopping, trying new coffee houses, playing sports, boating, skiing, hiking or just relaxing without guilt. See what you can do to boost your FQ score. Talk about FQ with others for ideas. Lastly, if you have to do all of your work, chores and obligations before fun, you will never get to it.
