International Fun at Work Day

This is a day to have fun at work because work should be fun- and April 1st (April Fool's Day) is a very good chance to celebrate it.

Originally called National Fun at Work Day (USA), International Fun at Work Day began in 1996 by the folks at Playfair in an effort to create "a joyous and playful, yet absolutely serious, effort to increase awareness of the importance of bringing a playful attitude to work."

If you've ever felt like you work like a dog, you aren't alone. Whether you love your job or not so much, many of us are overworked, underpaid and over-stressed. But when you think about it, most dogs enjoy life, whether they are working dogs, service dogs or beloved family pets. Everything is a new adventure no matter what they are doing. A dog's life is exciting and fun. Most dogs are loyal and loving, despite their circumstances.

If humans embraced life like most dogs do, perhaps our lives could change? Life may not be so "ruff" with a little attitude adjustment. At the end of the day, we could even have a happy "tail" to tell? Who "nose?"

Why not take a cue from our canine companions and really enjoy life, regardless of the circumstances? International Fun at Work Day reminds us all to live a little and laugh a lot!

Day is celebrated on April 1st, or on the following Thursday when April 1st falls on a weekend.
