8 ways to feel like a child again

Do you ever feel like wanting to be a child again? Or if you're a child, wanting to be an adult? This blog post is for you! 8 ways to feel like a child again.
Thanks to Scott Webb for the beautiful visual representation.
When we're young we can't wait to grow up and when we finally grow up, we spend the time wishing we were young again. But, there are ways to get over that. Being an 'adult' doesn't mean you can't have fun or can't act like a child again... you just need to know when the correct time is to do that. 

Do fun activities.

When was the last time you went to the play park and had fun? It doesn’t matter what age you are, there are no restrictions on the age you have fun. It doesn’t even have to be a “childish” activity, it could be paintballing, bowling, kart racing or even your nearest zip line. Find the fun in little things and go outside of your comfort zone. You don’t need to have a restriction on yourself.

Be around children.

Believe it or not, being around children brightens up anyone’s mood. Especially, when they’re having fun. So, have a little fun with them and let your inner child out. Sing with them, let your imagination take you on a ride and have fun.

Become carefree.

Stop stressing and being agitated over every little thing and let many things go. You don’t need a comeback for everything and you certainly don’t need to take everything to heart.

Enjoy everything.

Start to enjoy every little moment. Find happiness in little things and as soon as you start living, you’ll appreciate life more.

Be childish.

Dance in the rain, jump in puddles, have a water fight, climb trees, and let your inner child out.

Travel and embrace new experiences.

Go out there and experience the things for the first time. See new things, do new things, and learn about new cultures. When we’re all young we do many things for the first time, some we love, others not so much, therefore do more new things that you can experience.

Share your experience with someone.

Share your experience with someone who hasn’t before and live through the experience together. The feeling of being able to share an experience with someone close to you is valuable.


Being free of responsibilities and other things just makes you peaceful.

How do you feel like a child again? 

Thanks for reading!
Until next time, take care and keep smiling.

  1. It is so true that we spent our childhood wishing to grow up as fast as possible and now we wish we could turn back the time. I love going to the park, especially when it involves having a picnic. And travelling is definitely a way to feel young again, I love getting to know different cultures - it makes you grow so much as a person as well. Things that make me feel like a child again are going ice skating and baking xx

    1. Thank you for leaving such a beautiful comment Mira! Getting to know different cultures, people and their experiences just helps us to grow. I can imagine how ice skating makes you feel like a child again, super fun!

  2. I absoloutely love this post! I was definitely one of those children who couldn't wait to grow up but now I'm gutted I didn't make the most of every moment of blissful ignorance! We definitely have days where we act chidlike - it's so much fun! It's even better when we get to be around my young nieces!

  3. Thank you Emily! I couldn't agree more. I say take every chance to have as much fun as you can because in those moments, the best of memories are created. Life is too short to be serious all of the time.
