The Art of being Playful -101!

Has anyone noticed that life can be a little … TOUGH!!!

worried

Life comes at a person fast and furious (on some days). Or dreary and overwhelmingly dull and even (should I use the word … depressing) on other days. Scary, Frightening, Sad, Miserable, Hectic, Cruel, Too much, too much, too much …

There you go. That’s us humans for you. We’re a very reactionary bunch aren’t we? We think and emote over almost everything. Maybe we’re too stationary. Or not stationary enough (mentally speaking)!

running

I think we need more “playful” breaks. Tickling and giggling are good. Just running with a burst of energy for no reason at all is good. Singing a fun song just for the heck of it.

“If your happy and you know it clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you show it then the whole wide world will know it,

it you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.”

playing

Happiness is a state of being. It doesn’t “fix’ the problems of the world. But it certain puts us in a more positive productive mode (mood also) which can in fact change how we approach the problems of the world. Change your attitude and things don’t appear quite so untenable.

Saying I love you for no reason at all except you just want to in the moment (children do that spontaneously, you know).

sharing your feelings

And being sensual … as in my last post. That’s being playful also. On a list of top ten playful things for adults to do … Being openly sensual is right up there towards the top because we need each other and we need to let each other know this. A very good and “playful” reminder for you today.

It’s Thursday, a work day for many, still take a little bit of time today and be playful,

thanks for stopping by,

  1. We don’t lose the need for novelty and pleasure as we grow up… why do we dismiss such a wonderful resource that brings such joy to your life? It is a pity indeed. Glad to see the little girl in you is still alive and thriving and expressing herself πŸ˜‰ warm hugs to you dear one. πŸ˜‰

  2. I like this. I love the woman with the little girl, but I think the toddler with the water is the best one πŸ˜€

    We do need to make time to do some playtime. Whether it is tickling, child play or adult play. Playing gets rid of tension and brings laughter. The laughter of little children is infectious.

    If you’re happy and you know it Stamp your feet
    If you’re happy and you know it Stamp your feet
    If you’re happy and you show it then the whole wide world will know it
    If you’re happy and you know it Stamp your feet
