- Autumn colours and puddles on a rainy day (2) 🍂💦🍁 Do you also love to play in the puddels ?? 😝 =========================
(We all need downtime and “silly” activities to recharge after a long day or week of work or whatever our daily life is filled with.
Our brains are always on the go, even while our bodies are often firmly plunked in one place ... and in order to prevent burnout, refresh our creative energy, feel better, and improve our relationships (both with ourselves and others), we need to take some time off and get back to our roots: play 😝
We give kids recess time to run around, blow off some steam, and just be themselves, but why don’t we treat ourselves the same way? 🙄☺️
Being a grownup isn’t all about being serious all the time – we have a right and a need to play, too 😉 More and more scientific studies are showing that the power of play is just as “magical” for adults as it is for kids. We all need that “outlet” in order to stay at the top of our game, dreaming up ideas no one has ever thought of before ☝️
The strong endorphin rush of just being “silly” for no reason counteracts the effects of a negative hormone, cortisol, that can leave you feeling sluggish or depressed. So e.g. learning to juggle, blowing bubbles, running around playing tag for just a few minutes ... or jumping in rain puddles ... releases enough endorphins to boost you for the rest of the day…so imagine how much less stressed you’ll be if you give yourself a recess break to play every day – so let’s all start playing some more – and remember to go and splash in puddles the next time it rains ... it’s great fun 💦😝💦)
