Ways to Play More Often
Forget what you look like 'in public.'
Wear comfy clothes and shoes that can kick a ball.
Keep toys nearby and books that lighten you up.
Watch movies that make your stomach ache with laughter.
Spend time with friends that know how to play.
Keep forgetting to get 'serious stuff' done.
Lie down on sidewalks in the sun with a friend who giggles.
Hire a marching band.
Walk sideways while singing to reggae music loudly.
Keep sidewalk chalk in your car or backpack.
Talk to strangers and ask, 'What kind of games do you like to play?'
Be willing to be thought of as silly or 'odd.'
Babysit and be reminded how to play.
Make play dates with your adult friends, invent new play-full activities
Laughing and saying
Yes to Life and to
Playing more often!
