Playfulness and laughter are good for the heart and good for the mind. With two young boys in the house, laughing and playing are part of our daily life.
It’s all too easy, when I feel tired or busy or frustrated, to skip out on the fun and play and focus instead on completing the tasks before me. And while taking care of necessary business is important, I often remind myself that it’s also important to engage in and cultivate playfulness in life. It’s vital both for my children and for myself. It brings everybody joy.
How do you foster playfulness in your own life? What things make you laugh and bring you joy?
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.“ –George Bernard Shaw
