I know, it seems obvious doesn't it, but it is so important that we take the time to enjoy life; not only for the immediate enjoyment itself, but for the benefit of our own health!
Mark's Daily Apple talks often about the importance of play; he enjoys a weekly dose of Ultimate Frisbee, and that sounds great, but I think the term play deserves a much wider definition!
The great play I have had with my dog Charlie was restorative for us both, and it didn't result in a winner or a loser... I even see my morning, ritualistic workouts of visualized and body weight resistance as a form of enjoyable play. When I get together with family and friends for a backyard campfire, that is indeed highly enjoyable play, as is throwing little toys around for my cats!
And of course, let's not forget about things like playing a board game, or playing guitar- to my mind,
making music is one of the ultimate forms of play!
The main thing about playing is that we make some time for it, each and every day!!
