Ep 10 – Essential Nature of Play

The powerful strategy of play is often lost as we grow into adults. We forget all the great things we learned through having fun, being creative, and playing games as kids. In addition to being a powerful stress reducer, time spent in “play energy” activates parts of the brain that are often neglected and helps us function more wholly as human beings.

Making time for recreation, fun, and play daily balances our body, mind, and spirit. Time spent playing, whether playing a sport, a board game or even writing and creating, is not time wasted! It is a powerful aspect of wellness.  It’s time to act like a kid  again

In this episode you will discover: 

  • the 4 types of play
  • how to create your favorite “play” list
  • our favorite tricks to infuse your life with play energy to overcome burnout, stress, and boredom.
