Team IBeautySpy extends great pleasure in welcoming you to this online event Let’s SetUp Your Life.
Here we are in Day 13 of the Let’s SetUp Your Life Event with Task #13. We are in Module 3 – Rebuilding.
Coming to today’s task, it’s a Life Task – Play.
Why Play? Importance of Playing?
Playing is highly important for relaxing ourselves in our day to day lives and staying young.
Play allows us to learn how to be creative and helps nurture critical thinking, personality development, and adaptive pathways for us in childhood. The benefits of play are far-reaching, but we often give up play as adults for more serious pursuits such as our careers, our relationships, and our families—all of which are valid pursuits.
But what if we could tap into play to enhance our life experiences, our professions, our relationships, and our family lives as adults as well?
Play for adults is critical in our stressful go-go-go lives. Play has been shown to release endorphins, improve brain functionality, and stimulate creativity. And it can even help to keep us young and feeling energetic. Studies show that play improves memory. One of the things that may often stop us from playing is that we, as adults, get very set on who we are and the types of activities that we do and do not like. But play is healthy and fun, so it benefits us to figuratively—or literally—roll the dice and allow play back into our lives. Who wouldn’t like to experience more moments of lightness and freedom in our days? Playing with your romantic partner, friends, co-workers, pets, and children is a sure (and fun) way to fuel your imagination, creativity, problem-solving abilities, and emotional well-being. Adult play is a time to forget about work and commitments.
* Relieves stress.
* Improve brain function.
* Stimulate the mind and boost creativity.
* Improve relationships and your connection to others.
* Keep you feeling young and energetic.
Play and relationships:
Play is one of the most effective tools for keeping relationships fresh and exciting. Playing together brings joy, vitality, and resilience to relationships. Play can also heal resentments, disagreements, and hurts. Through regular play, we learn to trust one another and feel safe. Trust enables us to work together. By making a conscious effort to incorporate more humor and play into your daily interactions, you can improve the quality of your love relationships—as well as your connections with co-workers, family members, and friends.
* Play helps develop and improve social skills.
* Play teaches cooperation with others – Play is a powerful catalyst for positive socialization. Through play, children learn how to “play nicely” with others—to work together, follow mutually agreed upon rules, and socialize in groups. As adults, you can continue to use play to break down barriers and improve your relationships with others.
* Play can heal emotional wounds.
* Fixing relationship problems with humor and play – Play and laughter perform an essential role in building strong, healthy relationships by bringing people closer together, creating a positive bond, and resolving conflict and disagreements. In new relationships, play and humor can be an effective tool,, for attracting the other person and flirting. In longer-term relationships, play can keep your connection exciting, fresh and vibrant, while also deepening intimacy.
* Having a pet is a great way to play.
Play at work:
Many dot-com companies have long recognized the link between productivity and a fun work environment. Some encourage play and creativity by offering art or yoga classes, throwing regular parties, providing games such as Foosball or ping pong, or encouraging recess-like breaks during the workday for employees to play and relax. These companies know that more play at work results in more productivity, higher job satisfaction, greater workplace morale, and a decrease in employees skipping work and staff turnover.
