Work hard, play harder has always been my motto. It should be part of your self-care plan to make the time to hang out with people you truly enjoy (even if it’s only yourself), to just PLAY. A lot of adults seem to think that playing is for kids...that they don’t have time for fun. Not true! As an adult, with all of our responsibilities and worries and blah, blah, blah we need play more than ever! In whatever way we deem to be ‘play’. Playing is GREAT for the brain! Play actually improves memory and stimulates the growth of the cerebral cortex which is associated with thought and action! So, playing can actually make you MORE productive - not less!
