We’re heading into one of the busiest times of the year, with several holidays over the next couple of months. The weather will start to get bad too, in some areas, which adds to our stress. What can we do to prepare, and survive the season with our health intact?
While you are planning for all the upcoming events, and getting overwhelmed at times, take a few minutes to relax. Even better – take some time to play!
Some days, it seems impossible to even think about play. We’re too busy, looking after everyone, and getting things done. But those are the days when it’s most important to take a little time for yourself.
Do Not Quit Playing
One of my favorite quotes about playing is by Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.:
“Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.”
For a few minutes, try to feel like a kid again, even if you have some aches and pains, and many things to worry about.
