Having a really good time is an important part of a healthy and balanced life, but in today’s fast paced world, people no longer seem to have the time to enjoy themselves. Spending time doing things that don’t generate any kind of profit is viewed as a sort of luxury that, nowadays, very few people can afford. Yet, having fun helps balance our mind and liven our spirits. Understanding what we enjoy doing is the first step towards helping us make our lives worth living. In That Sounds Fun: The Joys of Being an Amateur, the Power of Falling in Love, and Why You Need a Hobby, Annie F. Downs whole heartedly shares her thoughts and tips to help regain that piece of Eden that we left behind as we grew up.
