My reflection today:
“Play is the gateway to vitality. By its nature it is uniquely and intrinsically rewarding. It generates optimism, seeks out novelty, makes perseverance fun, leads to mastery, gives the immune system a bounce, fosters empathy, and promotes a sense of belonging and community.” – The National Institute for Play
As children we were always looking for opportunities to play. What happened when we became an adult? We were told it was much more important for adults to work and not to play. And yet this reflection is so true ….there is so much in playing that makes us a balanced person.?
