50 Healthy Distractions You Can Start Today

Written by 50 Fun Things Alum, Michael Thomas Sunnarborg

Distracted enough? I thought so.

Seriously. With the onslaught of information, links, videos, emails, text messages, and everyone competing for our attention, we’re lucky if we can get through our to-do lists each day.

Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like our lives just keep getting busier. And how do we know which of our distractions are adding to our happiness or draining our energy tank?

Simple. We start paying attention to what we pay attention to. And based on how our choices are manifesting in our experiences, we can choose again.

Part of creating healthy habits is being willing to try new things. For me, this included participating in a fantastic 50 Fun Things workshop. Teresa Thomas started 50 Fun Things to help people brainstorm joyful ways to restore fun, spontaneity and connection in their lives.

Teresa "starstruck" at Michael's book signing a few years ago. LOL (Another tenet of 50 Fun Things is to not take yourself too seriously!)
