Catherine Price, author and science journalist, defines the word ‘fun’ as follows: ‘Fun really isn’t just light-hearted amusement. It’s not just for kids, and it’s not to be taken lightly. Instead, having fun is the secret to feeling alive.”

She believes fun has been made to sound frivolous and optional. “There is an element of Lucky coincidence in it,” she says, adding that a person who is really having fun will look like they’re “enlightened from within.”

She says when people tell their “funny” stories, it seems like a fire has been lit inside them. “So much life sucks us dry, but fun fills us,” she adds.

Listing the benefits of having fun, she says we can feel relaxed and healthy. She describes fun as a “state of flow” that compels us to stay in the present and enjoy every moment. Price also believes that fun has the potential to unite people; We connect as people without thinking about caste, religion and nationalities.

She believes we can have more fun in life when we do something that “fills your life with more moments of playfulness, connection and flow.” She calls fun “sunshine” and says, “It’s a distillation of life energy and the more times we experience it, the more we will do it [feel] as if we were alive.”
