Who says getting old means having to lose your sense of fun? Doing the things you love whenever you want is something that we always looked forward to in adulthood, but somewhere along the way we seem to have forgotten about that. Maybe it's because of the increased responsibility, or perhaps it's due to the mundane routine of having to constantly work. Either way, life as an adult isn't all that it was cracked up to be.
It may seem like something inconsequential in our busy, daily lives, but cutting loose and enjoying yourself is a very important part of maintaining good mental and physical health. In an article published to Psychology Today, former Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder, states, "Recreational deprivation has been linked to criminality, obesity, and declining creativity." In an era where people often jump to medication as the solution to life's problems, it can be surprising what diet, exercise and a little fun can do to help you feel better in all aspects of life. There really is no excuse for neglecting this.
Seeing how much fun this mother is having in the video below, it's hard not to smile. Even though she's no longer in the prime of her youth, she definitely knows how to cut loose and play the drums like she still is. On top of that, she is playing the classic tune "Wipe Out" by The Surfaris. What tune could possibly be more associated with having care-free fun in the sun?
