There's been a trend in some social media circles of expressions of "not wanting to adult today." Who would want to adult, when that often means working hard at jobs that might not be out passions and using the rest of our time in responsibilities of home, car and family?
But what if adult-ing meant playing everyday? We believe that we all can use more play in our days, and psychologists are finding that it is crucial for problem-solving, creativity and relationships - all things that are involved in adult-ing.
Here are three questions that can help you get more play in your days:
What are your favorite play memories?
Who are some of the most playful people you know?
What opportunities do you have to play with little ones?
Or consider getting yourself to a playground. Find your sacred space to play.
