The Power of Fun

by Mike Hunter

Journalist and screen/life balance expert Catherine Price argues persuasively that our always-on, tech-addicted lifestyles have led us to obsess over intangible concepts such as happiness while obscuring the fact that real happiness lies in the everyday experience of fun. We claim to not have time for it, even as we find hours a day for what Price calls Fake Fun — bingeing on television, doom-scrolling the news or posting photos to social media. In this follow-up to her hit book How to Break Up with Your Phone, Price makes the case that True Fun — which she defines as the magical confluence of playfulness, connection and flow —will give us the fulfillment we so desperately seek. Using True Fun as a compass, we will be more productive, less resentful and less stressed. And best of all? We’ll enjoy the process.
