2/365 – How do you design #play into your life?
The act of play is important for children. It helps them develop the skills for physical, social, and emotional well-being and better understand themselves and their relationship with the world.
As we get older, the stress of being an adult creeps in – and we run out of time to play. Yet play can serve the same function for adults.
As I gear up for the next chapter of my life, discarding one identity and preparing for the next – I’ve been wondering how I might design more play into my life.
One idea has been to “default to yes” when I’m asked to try things that don’t violate hard boundaries.
The other has been to find playmates and to schedule playtime.
