Your Total should equal 100%
Are your percentages where you would like them to be? Don’t worry, most adults have a low play percentage at first. The good news is this course will help you increase it. The very thing that we need to do more of to feel better — play — is usually something relegated to children, but the fact is, people of all ages need to experience the lightness and joy that comes from being in play mode.
In week 1 of this program, you will identify what play is to you, and practice shifting to more play and less drudgery. It sounds simple, yet, most people find that it’s not so easy to establish new patterns and practices, particularly in stressful times.
What’s one thing you can do today that would feel like play?
Need ideas? Think back to your childhood, or to a simpler time. What did you do for fun and relaxation?
Whatever you choose, make sure it makes you smile, feel light and cheerful, like children at play. If it doesn’t, switch it up!
Do it! Aim for at least 15 minutes.
