An Argument for Play in Your Life

For most people who are trying to incorporate more creativity, fun and enjoyment in their life, there are a few things that everyone can be focused on. For one thing, reducing stress and anxiety is going to have a profound impact on how happy you can be. For another thing, there are basic needs that all kids fulfill, but adults do not. One of the main needs is play.

Adding more play into your life can conjure thoughts of fear and scarcity, which will hamper your ability to have fun and enjoy yourself. The greatest argument for play being added into your life is that it is going to help to reduce your stress and anxiety while increasing the level of creativity that you experience.

How is it possible that play can add more creativity? Just consider some of the recent developments that have come out of play. Elon Musk, the famous founder of SpaceX and Tesla, decided that he was going to play a game with the rocket ship to create private space travel. In interviews he talks about the puzzle pieces he conceptualized that helped him to develop a cheaper rocket.

The same holds true for Japanese origami experts who have used their play to develop satellites and even surgical tools that help with the process of saving lives. All of these life saving and earth shattering developments have come because there are so many people willing to play and use that mindspace to build whatever they are doing. This added playfulness creates health and fulfillment, but also prosperity and benefits for all of mankind.

Therefore, it is your job to get out there and add more play into your life. You’ll find soon enough that it is one of the best things that you can do for your overall health and wellbeing.1
