Play is vital

As an ingredient in the Happiness Recipe, play is about how you move through your life more than a singular activity. If you have read and have an understanding of the other ingredients, this one will be easier for you to ‘get’.

The value of play/playfulness cannot be overstated as a necessary ingredient for your happiness and success. The trick is to understand how it feels when you are engaged in play. It should be an all-consuming, peaceful, and happy feeling. 

When you do the dishes, relax and just do the dishes. Don’t think about not liking to do the dishes. Don’t think about how long it is taking. Don’t think about what you have to do next. Just contentedly do the dishes.

The opposite of play is not work. It’s depression. ~ Brian Sutton-Smith

 I find myself humming or singing along to the music. Not sure if the humming came first or the habit of contentment. The more playful you can make your everyday activities the easier it becomes to Walk in Joy. 

Play Is Vital

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, and sometimes your smile is the source of your joy.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

This feeling of contentment/joy/happiness connects you with ‘the all that is’ and makes the creation of your Best and Happiest Life easy.

Play is the mediator of the invisible and visible. ~ Dora M. Kalff

The more time you spend in your happy zone, the better your life will be. Always remember that whatever you are feeling is your Animating Current and your Animating Current creates your reality.

The importance of play and playfulness cannot be overstated.
