A provocative case for making fun an essential part of a balanced, purposeful, healthy life, from the author of How to Break Up with Your Phone

Sharp, entertaining, and persuasive, The Power of Fun is an essential guide for anyone who can't quite remember what it's like to experience joy.--Laurie Santos, professor of psychology, Yale University, and host of The Happiness Lab podcast

In our always-on, productivity-addicted lifestyles, we tend to think of the pursuit of fun as being indulgent, even immature and childish. When we do find the time to relax or care for ourselves, we tend to turn to activities that are not actually restorative: binging Netflix, scrolling through Twitter, or indulging our FOMO on Instagram. Through years of research, journalist Catherine Price has learned the truth: far from being frivolous or a distraction, fun is actually the secret to achieving our goals. If you reorient your life around what you personally find fun--true fun--you will be happier and healthier. You will be more productive, less resentful, and less stressed. You will have more energy, for yourself and for other people. You will find community and a sense of purpose. You will feel alive again.

In The Power of Fun, Price unpacks the latest research on the necessity of fun and includes tips and strategies--similar in style to the practical advice that made her book How to Break Up with Your Phone a smash hit--to help people find actionable ways to incorporate fun into their daily lives. Groundbreaking, eye-opening, and packed with useful guidance, The Power of Fun is a revealing depiction of the ways that fun is far from trivial. In fact, it is the key to waking up and living a more meaningful life.
