BE JOYFUL! STAY HEALTHY!

BE JOYFUL! STAY HEALTHY!

Many folks today find themselves in a most serious disposition; Adulthood.

Research suggests a most serious disposition is linked to Comical Imbalance.

To be comical, is to be funny, lighthearted and Playful. We can transform the seriousness of our lives when we have a Playful Spirit. Playfulness motivates, inspires and brings forth a deeper appreciation and joyful zest for life.

The Age of Maturity enters our lives and we become busy with important and serious ‘stuff’; work, finances, family commitments, health issues. Our daily moments are consumed with our serious ‘stuff’. Play seems to be that ‘thing’ we indulged long ago when we were kids.

Our digital lives add another layer to managing our ‘stuff’ as our gizmos and gadgets tantalize our waking moments and we dare venture anywhere without them.

Remember playing in Nature as a child, without a gizmo or gadget? Building forts, make-believe story telling, swinging, running through sprinklers; silliness galore!

Can you imagine turning off the gizmo and entering the realm of Child Play?

Grumpy grownups have been stripped of their most pure and inherent power: Play. While society values competitive play in adulthood; silly, non-intentional, nonsensical, non-goal oriented play is considered pointless and even a waste of time by many.

Play research suggests childish, feel good play is a choice remedy for grumpy grownups and cures Comical Imbalance.

Comical Imbalance results from too much seriousness in our day to day lives; serious relationships, serious job, serious finances, serious competition, serious life ‘stuff’.

With so much seriousness we deprive our inherent child who houses the key to our true, authentic selves.

Play activates a joyful disposition paving the road to our highest potential by stimulating our inner child. Put it simply: Play Brings Joy and Joyfulness is Our Greatest Gift.

Joyful Play rejuvenates our lives, relieves stress, promotes a love for learning, connects us to a deeper level with nature and each other, fosters a young at heart spirit, energizes vitality, boosts immune functioning (in body, mind and spirit), prevents chronic dis-EASE and prods us to balance sensory-overload from our gizmos & gadgets with Nature time.

Tapping In by Tapping Out and Tapping Out by Tapping In

Play enlivens our work. Play elevates Imagination promoting ease of mind; relaxing worry and doubt so we are better equipped to adapt to change.

Play resets our brain with Endless Possibility ~~~

Relationships are refreshed with Play; healing old hurts, resentments, letting go of fears while fostoring a positive disposition.

Play is the Here and Now Experience.

Dr. Stuart Brown, Founder of the National Institute for Play, calls play a “state of being, purposeless, fun and pleasurable. The focus is on the actual experience, not accomplishing a goal”. “Play is the purest expression of love”.

By increasing your Playtime, you increase your happiness. By increasing your happiness, you achieve Comical Balance. A Playful spirit brings delight into your home, in the workplace, in the classroom, in all those serious places. Playfulness creates an ambiance of smiles, laughs and a contagious feel good resonance for you and all around you.

Can anyone create Comical Balance and stop being a Grumpy Grown-up?
