My friend in ZhongLi suggested the Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin was a great find. The book goes through a year of Gretchen’s self discipline.
In May she talks about Fun. Fun falls into three categories: challenging fun, accommodating fun, and relaxing fun.
All three take a bit of effort, but the rewards can be surprising. I find that “Fun” by myself is the easiest.
Getting together with family and friends isn’t necessarily fun. At times it can
be stressful. I’ve been living in Taiwan for quite a few years without family
so I haven’t had any experiences with family fun.
I do have quite a few friends in Taiwan, and especially going surfing for example
is a lot of fun.
If you buy a hard copy, don’t buy the small print, it’s hard to read.
