In a culture hyper-focused on productivity, performance, and pressure to excel, play can be seen as a waste of time. Why would you waste your precious time and energy goofing off when you could be striving towards your goals?
As children, play is something that comes natural to you. You aren’t taught to do it, it’s just something you do! As you come of age, you’re sent to school, work, maybe to college, and are taught to be a productive and responsible member of society. Play becomes a thing of the past.
Overtime, agitation and stress begin to build up. You feel spread thin, like you can’t keep up with your never ending to-do list, leaving you rushed, bitter, and with no time to do what you actually love!
Tune into this episode to remember what it means to play, something you were born to do!
