We Could All Use A Little Play Time.

The Opposite Of Play Is Not Work, But Depression.

Studies show that adults need “play time” too. Unfortunately, in our culture play is seen as a time waster for lazy people. That could not be further from the truth.

Play can benefit us in our personal and professional lives in the following ways:

  • Reduces stress

  • Improves brain function

  • Stimulates creativity

  • Increases energy

  • Improves relationships, connection to others, social skills and cooperation with others.

  • Promotes critical thinking.

  • Can help heal emotional wounds

Play can take the form of many different things such as watching movies, reading a book, listening to (or playing) music, walking the dog or playing tennis.

The only criteria required to be considered play are: 1) You don’t want it to end and 2) The activity is purposeless.

If you need a little more joy in your life - make some time to play.
