Close your eyes and think of a time in your life when you were the happiest you've ever been.  No stress or anxiety, just pure happiness.

Chances are, the moment in time you pinpoint was when you were a kid.  Even if you had a crappy upbringing; being a kid was pretty awesome - no responsibilities and days filled with Lunchables and Lite Brite.

The question I have is how come when we get older we stop doing the things that made us so happy at a younger age?  It's not like we stop liking those things just because an arbitrary number (age) says you should be more mature.  

Seriously, we only get one shot at life so who gives a shit if the stuff that makes you happy is outside of a social norm or something people half your age are supposed to do?  So many of us fall into the trap of doing what others say we should be doing.  I see the "live to work" mentality all the time in people and it's sad to watch because they don't even realize it. They aren't aware of what they are missing out on. 

I was one of them up until a few years ago.  I finally reached a boiling point with the grind all week/rest for 2 days/repeat mentality that America has done such a good job ingraining into our brains.  I decided to make a change that has enhanced my life in numerous ways- BE A KID AGAIN!  More specifically, start doing more of what I WANT to do and rediscover things I was passionate about but stopped doing for 20+ years.

While my main goal in doing this was to have more fun, an unexpected benefit has come in the form of stress management.  It's amazing how much of a de-stressor it is to come home at night after a long day and eat pancakes for dinner or write (like I did when I was 10).  It triggers this calming feeling, kind of hard to fully explain unless you feel it yourself.

So, give being a kid again a shot. Start by listening some things you used to enjoy and slowly start reintroducing them back into your life.  Here is my list to give you some ideas if you're stuck.

I wish to be a kid again, wherein no pressures in life. I remember playing toys with my friends. I remember watching my siblings fighting in front of me. I always thought that the older I would get, I can get all things in life. It hit me so hard. I should take my time growing up. I wish I would have spent more time to be a kid. I love to be a kid again. It is a time when you don't need to judge other people. It's a time wherein I can play and eat sweet foods.
