FUN: A little word that can make a huge impact on your life

What sounds fun to you?

You might be surprised to learn that the idea of fun is actually pretty serious business. Join Annie F. Downs on a journey of discovering not just the fun that you want in your life, but also the fun that you need. After all, she's kind of an expert.

As the host of the widely popular That Sounds Fun podcast, Annie and her guests chat about fun every week. She chases it, she celebrates it, and now she's going to help you find it for yourself. Annie's witty, warm approach in this book will help you see the unexpected benefits of opening up, letting go, and giving in to a little more fun in your days.

We all need certain things in order to survive--food, shelter, and safety to name a few. But in order to live fun and joyful lives, we need a lot more than the basics. For popular podcaster and bestselling author Annie F. Downs, fun is at the top of that list.

We all know that having fun enriches our lives, but so much gets in the way of prioritizing it. Tough days, busyness, and feelings that are hard to talk about keep us from recognizing and embracing the fun that's out there waiting to be found.

With her signature storytelling style and whimsical vulnerability, Annie offers an irresistible invitation to figure out what exactly sounds fun to you--then encourages you to do it! Exploring research and sharing her thoughts behind why fun matters, she will show you how to find, experience, and multiply your fun today and every day.
