The daily grind often gets in the way of my spontaneity and keeps me from living in the moment. I have to make a conscious effort to fully appreciate what is before me because I often find myself waiting for something: the end of the day, the weekend, a vacation … I sometimes wish I could feel that childlike innocence again, and just be happy in the moment.
If, like me, you wish to remain or become again young at heart, here are 3 small things you can do.
1. Make time for play
Board games with friends, pillow fights, building forts outside after a big snowstorm. You don’t have to be on vacation to find time to play. Snap out of the work-sleep-repeat routine, and be a little spontaneous!
2. Do kid-inspired activities
Visit a zoo, get dizzy on a rollercoaster, go see a kids’ movie at the theater, get a colouring book… These activities will help you reconnect with your inner child. If you don’t have kids yourself, invite a neighbour or your niece to join you! Sharing this moment with a child will help you to slow down, be curious and enjoy the moment.
3. Cook or eat a meal from your childhood
Bake your grandmother’s famous bread pudding, get some bubblegum-flavoured ice cream, or treat yourself to a steamed hotdog, just the kind your parents got you after your soccer games … A #guiltypleasure that can only put a smile on your face! You’re long overdue for a cheat meal anyway 😉
It’s easy: kids get their joie-de-vivre from simple things around them. To stay young at heart, I suggest you try and do the same! Some of our package deals are perfect for switching things up 😉 And if you do end up taking advantage of those, share your #chateaubromont moments with us.
