Having a good time

Millennials are putting fun at the top of their priority list. Because they know their future is uncertain, they want to enjoy the moment. Their legendary optimism is one of their core values, and they are looking for ways to escape the daily tedium. They are constantly and increasingly seeking out fun, pleasure, passion, novelty and guilt-free experiences. Having a good time and being happy are Millennials’ new goals in a society that is undergoing tough economic and political times. Individuals need to forget their daily routine for a while through bubbles of good, light-hearted time they create both at home and at work.
