In our busy world we are often spending our free time trying to figure out ways to fit more work into the rest of our day. Efficiency seems to be the manta of the day.
What we fail to realize is the importance and benefits of just having fun. Of course there is the importance of giving your mind a break and recharging your batteries but there is something that might help those of us reluctant to sacrifice production.
Pursuing fun, recreational activities otherwise known as ‘playing’ has benefits we may not know of or overlook. Recent studies have shown that when we shift or focus to more creative endeavors solutions that normally remain hidden may bubble to surface!
So this weekend find someway to play. Use that fun childlike creative side of you. Color a picture, throw a Frisbee around. Read a comic book. You may be surprised what you may learn about yourself and I promise you will have fun doing it!
