Play is more than just fun.

There’s so much to learn from Dr. Brown in this video. Here’s a couple of ideas I pulled from it.

  • The basis of human trust is found in play.
  • Play increases problems-solving and contextual memory abilities
  • The foundation for emotional regulation is built in play.
  • Play enables courageous action.
  • The opposite of play isn’t work, it’s depression.

Plus much more.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” George Bernard Shaw

As we head into the weekend, instead of trying to check off everything on our to-do list, let’s take some time to really get out and play.

Let’s laugh, jump around, flirt, play games and bounce our way to a healthier, happier life.

The world needs us to be happy, my friendly blog reader.

TAG!! You’re it!! :)

xoxo Pam

p.s. According to Dr. Brown, “Neoteny is the retention of immature qualities into adulthood”.

Not too long ago I was inspired to write this list of immaturity after reading a FaceBook post from Neil deGrasse Tyson. What’s on your list?

In response to the stormy seas of life, my husband Blake and I have created this website to be a Current of Inspiration, a wave of love and joy to wash away hate and fear. By posting every week, it's our commitment to making our world a better place. We hope you find it uplifting and will share it with your friends! Thanks for stopping by! xoxo
