Never underestimate the Importance
of having fun.
Randy Pausch

When told to play, a child will run out the door and start galloping around on an imaginary horse or just start playing in the dirt.  Most adults, when told to play, might pause and wonder what that means.  But the bottom line is it means to go and do something fun.  I encourage you to try these 25 fun ways to play.  

But Why Play?

We all understand the idea that you need to have some fun in order to stimulate your creativity but think that you’re playing days are over. Maybe the fun was had during childhood and now that you’re an adult all you can do is work.

But that’s not true. First, your creativity needs its own inspiration. Maybe you understand the concept but aren’t sure what counts as play? Basically, anything that isn’t your job or work around your house counts as play. Tossing a frisbee with your children or even your dog? Play. A night of laughs and cards with friends? Play. And so many other ways.

Below is a list of 25 ways to play. 25 is not even the tip of the iceberg. It’s just a small fraction of the tip of the iceberg. But hopefully you’ll use this list as a jumping-off point to create your own playful experience.

I could go on and on with this list, but I’ll stop here.  Time to insert your own ideas for taking a break and having fun.
