When was the last time you played?
The last time you stepped away from work and technology and just went outside and played? My guess is it’s been a long time, and that makes me so sad! If I asked you the same question about the last time your kiddos played, what would your answer be? Currently, an hour ago, or maybe if it’s still early for you, yesterday?
What happened? When did playing become a thing for children, but not adults?
I address these questions and more in today’s episode, and I do a deep dive about the definition of play. I also talk about what happens when we don’t have enough play in our lives, and the research is astonishing.
Summer is the perfect time to make a serious commitment to play, so if you’re not convinced yet, listen on and I’ll make a believer out of you! (And then after you listen, GO PLAY! Today is the perfect day to play, Happy 4th of July!)
