How to be a big kid

Sometimes grown up life can be stressful. There are bills, rent and mortgages to pay, work stress and lots more. It's at times like this that I feel envious of kid me, life was carefree back then!

But why leave the fun stuff behind you? Why not bring back some of that carefree nature to combat serious grown up stuff? Here are some of my personal recommendations on how to be a big kid:

1. Build a fort.
 Seriously. There is so much fun to be had in a fort!

2. Have a picnic (indoors if the weather isn't good)

3. Play kids games, like hopscotch, Snap or Tag.
There's a reason you had so much fun playing them as a child!

4. Laugh and giggle over silly things.

5. Have a pyjama day.
They're comfy, just try not to let them become outerwear. They're not that cosy!

6. Have a movie day.
Watch the films that you loved as a child, you'd be surprised how much you might still love them!

7. Play with Lego.
Why not use it to make something practical for grown up you?

8. Sing!
It doesn't matter if you can sing or not. You'll feel happier and carefree after it!

9. Friends Forever.
Do all of the above with your friends. Some of the happiest memories I  have involves silly times with friends. There's a reason for that.
