When was the last time you played?
I have been spending a great deal of time with these adorable one-year-old twinnies and they have re-taught me the importance of PLAY!
Mark Sisson from Mark’s Daily Apple underscores the importance of taking time to do “purpose-less” activities. When I was looking into the Paleo/Primal lifestyle I was absolutely stunned that a big part of it is PLAYING! Honestly, I think this is a discipline that many adults have to re-learn. I am such a Type A multi-tasker, that taking time to PLAY is actually hard. However, it feels so good to play hide-n-seek with these two cuties and actually BELLY laugh with glee.
I challenge you to take 15 minutes out of your day today to PLAY. Find a playground and swing or go down the slide. Take time to read a silly children’s book. Buy a tube of fresh play-do and have some fun squishing it between your fingers. I promise that it will make your day SO much better!
Do you make time to “play”? What was your favorite thing to play as a kid.
*To answer the last part of that question, I was BIG into barbies. I actually secretly played with them until 6th grade. I just loved all of the clothes!*
