Playing on BeWoW Wednesday!

I can’t think of a more positive quote to sum up our human existence than this!

Is “PLAY” a four-letter word for you? Like “WORK” and well, you know…?

Take a look at this Definition of Play:

Unlike leisure, play has a more singular definition. Play is imaginative, intrinsically motivated, non-serious, freely chosen, and actively engaging.

While most people see play as the domain of children, adults also play, although often their play is more entwined with rules and regulations, which calls into question how playful their play really is.

On the other hand, children’s play is typified by spontaneity, joyfulness, and inhibition and is done not as a means to an end but for its inherent pleasure. Hurd and Anderson, 2011

Don’t forget to take some time to play today. Be spontaneous! Run like Phoebe!

    Brilliant quote. It’s very true. Play is freedom, children lose that freedom as they grow up. It’s something we never can seem to get back just the way it was.
