Let’s Spend More Time Enjoying Life in 2021
Ready for this year?
2020 had a lot in store for us... Much more than any of us bargained for, honestly. I have big plans for this year. I want to spend more time enjoying my life in 2021. I think this is an easy enough resolution to stick to!
Back to the basics
I think one of the easiest ways to devote more time to things I enjoy would be to get back to the basics of life. Let’s all set down the phones, turn off the TVs, and do things we haven’t done in a while! Pull out the old board games. Dust off the book you never finished. Grab the pool sticks. Try out a new recipe. There are a ton of things you can do without worrying about being in large crowds of people.
If you’re having trouble finding things to do that don’t involve technology, then I have a few ideas to share. I think we can all use a break from the constant bad news at our fingertips. At least I know I sure can!
Keep yourself busy
I’m sure there is a growing list of things you need to do around your house. The dishes can wait just a little longer! 2021 needs to be about having more fun. When I spend more time enjoying my life I find that my anxiety is much better. Being around my family is also something that brings me a lot of happiness and settles my anxiety. If you’re close to your family life I am, then pull them into your New Year’s Resolution!
Play a board game together. You can find games for parties of all sizes! Read a book. It might be something new to you, or it could be something you read a long time ago. Turn on some music and dance. Forget about everything going on and just jam out. Make a fun meal out of random things you have in the pantry- no trips to the store allowed! Play a game of pool! You can play with other people, or just challenge yourself.
Pool table fun
Speaking of pool tables, Absolute Billiard Services is my recommendation for anyone who has pool table needs. They’ve been in business for over 17 years, so you know you’re using a reputable company.
They offer pool table accessories in Atlanta as well as moving and restoring tables of all kinds. You can buy pool sticks, balls, cues, chalk, and anything else you could need for your pool table. They offer more than ten choices for pool balls alone! It is obvious that they’re dedicated to having supplies for any of their customer’s needs.
Focus on relationships
One thing that got pushed to the side this past year was relationships. This goes for a lot of people! We were told to social distance and not to see family members and close friends even. This resulted in depression, anxiety, and isolation for a lot of people. This year, gain friendships back and focus as much as you can on building up your relationships again. This goes for couples, family members, and friends alike.
Learn something new
A dog is never too old to learn new tricks, in my opinion, and this goes for people, as well. Take the time to do something that you have always wanted to learn and learn something new! Learn a new language, try a new skill, or take a tumbling class. The world is your oyster!
What is on your list this year for fun? Are you going to try out an at-home yoga class or maybe start fostering a kitten? I know my list for unwinding in 2021 is long, but I think we all deserve it.
