Video: Find Some Fun. You’ll Be Happier.

2010 Happiness Challenge: For those of you following the 2010 Happiness Project Challenge, to make 2010 a happier year – and even if you haven’t officially signed up for the challenge — last month’s theme was Eternity, and last week’s resolution was to Put your values into action in your everyday life. Did you try to follow that resolution? Did it help to boost your happiness?

This month’s theme is Fun, and this week’s resolution is to Find some fun (which can be surprisingly challenging). This resolution reminds me of one of my favorite Secrets of Adulthood: Just because something is fun for someone else doesn’t mean it’s fun for me — and vice versa.
