Is Being An Adult Harming Your Health?
Whenever I meet really boring people, I find myself wondering if they’re serial killers... Is that weird? Do you do that, or do I just watch too much ID channel?
Well, according to psychologists, it’s not that far off. As reported by Pyschology.com, a lack of fun in life has been linked to criminality, obesity and declining creativity.
That's right, it turns out that too much adulting, and not enough fun, could actually be affecting your physical and mental health. TOLD YOU DAD!
- Having fun reduces stress: doing something enjoyable can help you relax and reduce stress levels which are considered a risk factor for mental health issues.
- Have fun, sleep better: fun activities reduce cortisol levels and improve how soundly you sleep. Sleep problems may contribute to or even be a cause of mental health conditions.
- Having fun makes us happy: fun releases endorphins which make us happy. And according to world-renowned attorney, Elle Woods, “Happy people don't kill their husbands. They just don't.” (Legally Blonde reference. If you caught that, we’re automatically friends.)
So in the spirit of spring cleaning, I’m clearing out the cobwebs of my mind by injecting some fun into my days. I even bought a damn bike... like, what? Let's take a break from adulting and have some fun (cocktails optional).
(After work obviously... don't be getting fired and blaming that shit on me.)
