Why You Should Make Time for Fun this Year

bowling is funIt’s easy to let work take over your schedule, but making time for fun is crucial to keeping stress under control. To help, the team at Richmond 40 Bowl put together a list of fun activities that are also great exercise. But first, check out a few reasons why fun is important:

Fun Keeps You Young

The more fun you have, the more you’ll laugh. And laughter has amazing health benefits! It works out your abdominal muscles, increases blood flow to the heart and head, and reduces pain (thanks to endorphins).

Laughter also decreases stress and anxiety for most people. (Are you stressed about an upcoming first date? Bring her to the bowling alley!)

Fun Contributes to Productivity

Moderation is key to success. If you work too much, you will end up feeling burned out or frustrated with your work. However, when you make time for fun, your body and brain can relax and recharge. By doing this, you will be more productive at work!

Fun Activities Provide a Great Workout

Exercise is incredibly important for a healthy lifestyle. But boring exercises or intense workouts aren’t exactly fun. When you mix exercising with a fun activity, it’s a recipe for success! The more fun you have exercising, the more you want to exercise. You’d be surprised at how many fun activities are actually great sources of exercise. Here are a few:

  • Bowling
  • Climbing
  • Dancing
  • Skiing
  • Swimming
  • Yoga

Now that you understand why fun is so important, we encourage you to do one of the most enjoyable activities around – bowling! At Richmond 40 Bowl, we keep the fun going all year round. Check out our hours, then visit us today!
