What are the things you can lose yourself in for hours at a time? In Brene Brown ‘s book ‘The gifts of imperfection’ taking time to play is a key piece of whole hearted living. Our society tends to dismiss play for adults – it’s perceived as unproductive, petty or even a guilty pleasure. The notion is that once we reach adulthood, it’s time to get serious. But exhaustion is not a status symbol and your self-worth is not measured by your productivity. The truth is that it’s as important to protect playtime as work, as the opposite of play is not work – it’s depression. Play – doing things just because they’re fun – is actually vital to human development. It leads you to those sacred spaces; it’s rekindling and it’s healing. So don’t be afraid to lose track of time once in a while. In fact do it as often as you can.
