What is playfulness? If you’re reaching for the dictionary on this word, toss it aside! Playfulness can’t be described with words. It’s a feeling, and it’s one that can easily be neglected in this world and in health. How is playfulness good for your health?
When you’re playful, you’re appreciating the lightness that can be experienced in your life. This lightness naturally supports a balanced body and mind, gets you looking forward to new experiences, and helps you enjoy interacting with yourself and the world around you.
Naturally when stressful times arise it’s not always possible to bring out your playful side. On the other hand, how many days or weeks go by for people in today’s current lifestyle that aren’t riddled with stress in some way? Let’s be realistic and say that playfulness can sometimes appear on the endangered feelings list.
Don’t forget to enjoy your personality along the way in life. Playfulness isn’t all about how you appear to the outside world. It’s more about the lightheartedness you allow in your own life, even when life presents you with a regular reel of challenges and missteps. It’s a secret joke exchanged without words. It’s that laugh you share with yourself or someone else. It’s watching yourself, someone else, or your pet do something unexpected and memorable. Playful moments aren’t frivolous, they last for a long time.
Handle the daily routines, responsibilities, work, duties, and bills. Just don’t forget to play sometimes too.
