Everything we learnt about life we learnt in kindergarten
We have an innate desire to continue to play which does not stop
even as we grow older. Participating in play creates a sense of
freedom to do enjoyable things that provide social engagement
fun, creativity and spontaneity. There are a number of ways to
reintroduce play back into your life. It’s not necessary to partake
in all forms of play but certainly a couple will lift your mood and
create a sense of belonging and personal safety.
Determine one play experience that you can introduce into
your life. Now lock it into your weekly calendar for the next four
weeks. Take note of how it makes you feel. It’s also an important
step to diarise your activity so that it becomes part of your
routine and therefore a normal part of your life.
