Now, lets get started! 105 Things To Do To Have Fun is coming up! And to show we mean business, let jazz up the font!...

Having fun is no joke! In fact having fun with friends and family and yes, even by yourself, is part of my anti-aging, ageless living lifestyle!

I think having fun turns us into adult sized kids again.

Seriously, study after study has shown the importance of breaking away from the normal stresses and strains of life; that’s what play can do. And did you know, absence of fun in childhood is strongly related to antisocial behavior! The therapeutic benefits of humor and having fun are well studied too. There is simply no easier, cheaper and more effective therapy you can prescribe for yourself than to let loose and have some fun.

I know how difficult it is to think of things to do to have fun, especially last minute. So to make it easy for you —and I am talking ZERO thinking required here.

I have come up with 105 Things To Do To Have Fun —activities with couples, fun with your friends and even fun with little ole you yourself alone.

Best part of all is that most of the 105 Things To Do To Have Fun don't cost a dime but are still filled with tons of FUN factor! And PS —having fun things to do for kids or your grandkids will definitely make you #1!
