9 Quotes that Remind Us to Recharge and Have Fun
We work hard at JAGGAER. But we also believe in having fun and balancing work with “real life.” Here are some quotes that remind us to make fun and happiness a priority when it’s time to put work aside.
Live and work, but do not forget to play – to have fun in life and really enjoy it.
Fun is the proverbial “spoonful of sugar” that helps the medicine of responsibilities, tasks and chores go down easier. Work is important. But when you’re away from work, make fun a priority.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
Key word: design. Remember that you control your happiness. Hone in on what truly makes you happy and build it into your everyday life.
When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun. And when you have fun, you can do amazing things.
Being confident is often a learned behavior. Getting exercise, learning a new skill or hobby, and spending time with people who make us feel good about ourselves are all ways to build confidence and enjoy the fun that follows.
Rest until you feel like playing, then play until you feel like resting, period.
Sounds like the perfect vacation, doesn’t it? Maybe you can’t do it every weekend, but give yourself occasional days when playing and having fun are top priority.
Life is either a great adventure or nothing.
Adventure really is out there! Take a hike, plan a day trip, start a new project or try a new recipe – anything to tickle the “excitement” area of your brain. Small adventures are sometimes the best adventures.
I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.
Research shows that being grateful improves our psychological and physical health, enhances our relationships and boosts self-esteem. Take time to think about all you have to be grateful for.
The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.
Sydney J. Harris
When we work all week, we can fall into the trap of packing our days off with chores and to-do lists. Examine your list with a critical eye, and commit to only the must-do items. Having time to relax and recharge will allow you to be more productive in the long run.
You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.
Adults can fall prey to viewing play as a waste of time. Big mistake. Whether we play with family, friends or co-workers, we’re strengthening relationships, building trust and nurturing empathy. All of these things are worth our time.
The sound of laughter is like the vaulted dome of a temple of happiness.
Laughter is good for the soul. Watch a funny TV show, read a funny book, or just spend a few minutes browsing the “Humor” board on Pinterest. A few minutes of giggles can change your whole outlook.
