Good Wednesday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: Slow down long enough to add play into your day! It’s tough to enjoy life if you’ve got your nose to the grindstone day after day. Everyone needs a break. We know the importance of unstructured play for kids, but you need play time too. A walk, a run, shooting hoops, or listening to music is adult play and it adds enjoyment to your life. Taking a vacation once a year is important, but it’s not enough. You need mini vacations or play breaks every day. Time for yourself restores your energy, attitude and gratitude. Play time is not a waste of time. In fact, it’s on every quality of life scale, and people who report being happiest are also people who take time for play. If you’re feeling down in the dumps or discouraged, try adding 15 minutes of play time a day and get in touch with a vital side of your life you’ve been missing.
