Act Like A Kid Again
Welcome to day 2 of the Decompress – Where’s Your Happy Place? powered by Compass One
Most days we wake up and brace for the day ahead. Do you sometimes find yourself yearning for and reminiscing about the carefree days of childhood, when you could just play all day? It’s time to escape adulthood and go back to feeling like a kid — just for a little while.
Do something you haven’t done (or go somewhere you haven’t gone) since you were a child. Maybe it’s as simple as:
- Swinging on a swing
- Going rollerblading
- Building a blanket fort and taking a nap
- Playing a childhood game like kickball, capture the flag, or the floor is lava
- Watching a favorite childhood movie
Sometimes we need to feel some nostalgia and get back in touch with our young and carefree selves, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Going back to a place where you had fewer worries can help lift some of today’s weight from your shoulders. It can also ignite a fresh perspective, making you calmer, more patient, and happier.
