Today we’re talking about a topic that’s a lot of fun. In fact, we’re talking about fun itself and how we should be having fun in our businesses. You should be thrilled and excited to show up and do your job. And if you’re not, then it’s time to change that. Let’s dives into tips on how you can inject some fun into your job, and make sure you’re experiencing everything your business has to offer.

“It’s exciting for me. Every single day I am happy and having fun. Every client meeting that I have, every team meeting that I have, is infused with fun and we laugh so much together while adding massive value to the world.”

In this episode Avani talks about:

  • Why it’s important to have fun at work.
  • What she does to make her workdays more fun.
  • Why having fun at work should be a priority for you.

1. Affirmations

I know I talk about this a lot, but it’s because it’s important. Write down your affirmations that express how much fun your business is. You will prime your brain to find that fun and soon enough you’ll be experiencing it!

2. Collaborate

Human connection is an important part of having fun. However you want to do it (e.g. hiring someone, getting together with a friend or acquaintance), make an effort to connect with others. Set a ritual to meet up with someone and work on projects — it will make your tasks way more fun. Another great way to connect is to get feedback from your peers.

3. Schedule your fun

Our schedules can easily get packed. That’s why it’s important to actually schedule fun into your day, even if it’s short. For me, I like to do yoga or Pilates, but it can be whatever you want to help break up the day and make it feel more fun.

4. Work-cations

Traveling somewhere (ideally with someone) is a great way to have more fun. You’re still going to put in a full day, but the night is all yours! You can probably work from anywhere, so why not get out and explore the world while you work?

5. Play music

I used to listen to music that put me in the work mode, but I realized I didn’t really like any of it. Now I listen to what I want, when I want, and it’s made a huge difference. Try throwing on your favorite tunes to make your work a bit more entertaining!

6. Laugh

Laughing is one of the best things you can do to feel better. If need be, schedule it into your day. Hop on YouTube and watch some funny videos and feel free to laugh! It’s a great way to relieve stress and make your job fun.

7. Play games

Games can be anything. Compete against yourself to see if you can complete a task more quickly, and then give yourself a reward! Setting goals and rewards can make you can feel better about taking those well-earned breaks.
