Play Lifestyles: A Teacher Explains Why You Should Play Your Way Through Life by Teacher Karen
When people want to change, they sometimes start with resolutions. The top five resolutions usually involve the following:
- staying fit and healthy
- losing weight
- saving money
- spending more time with family and friends
- enjoying life
With less than 10 percent of resolutions succeeding, let me suggest a resolution that'll make you healthier, smarter and happier! Are you curious? The answer is a play philosophy of living! By adopting a play lifestyle, you'll see positive changes because play impacts all aspects of a person's life – physical, social, emotional and cognitive.
- Physical: A key characteristic of play is it's done for pure enjoyment. Find some way you like to move your body – have fun and you'll keep doing it!
- Social: Parenting can seem isolating. If you don't belong to a mom's or dad's group, start one! Join local meet-ups or community activities to make new friends; create a book club or bridge group.
- Emotional: Play offers a natural way to lower stress to relax and manage strong feelings.
- Cognitive: Play stimulates the mind and boosts creativity. It also sparks the imagination, which aids problem-solving skills.
Add play to your New Year resolutions – it'll be one you keep!
