Think Like A First-Grader! 


Too much responsibility and not enough time for fun!

Adults schedule play time for their kids, but not for themselves!
They work and sleep and work and do errands.  

Without play, imaginations get sluggish, choices
are limited, enthusiasm shrivels, innovation disappears.



Schedule play dates.

Play looks different for everyone
but it has some things in common.
It's voluntary, enjoyable, engaging,
and the act of playing matters more than the outcome.

 Make a list of activities that appeal to you.
What did you used to do for fun?  Ping-pong?
Listening to music? Line-dancing?  Making art?
Gardening? Building sand castles? 

Wake your imagination up! Think like a first-grader!
Make a meatloaf shaped like a heart.
Light candles at the breakfast table.  Wear a cowboy hat.  

Look around and notice something
you've never noticed before.

Make a play date with yourself.  Write it in your calendar.

And then another one and another one
