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:
Improves brain function
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.
