Having fun could be good for thriving and health. It is generally best to nourish health and wellbeing and thereby build one's health reserves in a wide sense, and also to bulwark carefully against what is much untoward or adverse, if that can be. A good education may foster mind-development and one's future fare and living-conditions too, so it may help to get educated.
