Play is any activity we do purely for fun, without any practical purpose. It’s good-for-you goofing off.
Inspiration for having more play in your life
Take a day off with nothing planned and see where it leads.
Read something just for pleasure.
Make a list of activities that are your idea of play ― puzzles, snorkelling, cooking, dancing, reading, skydiving, going to the movies … ― and then put time in your calendar for those things.
Book a regular date with friends who make you laugh.
Take a child to the park and play along.
Do something totally, wildly out of character.
When I think about being more playful, what springs to mind?
