Run! Play! Laugh! Dance! Jump! Love!

Filed under: Having FUN,Health & Wellness — Larry James @ 8:00 am

Never stop having fun with life! Tell some zany jokes. Talk. Listen. Dance to the music. Be passionate. Take a walk – hop or skip part of the way. Be silly for 2 minutes. Read a magazine at a picnic table. Take a bike ride. Don’t have a bike? Rent or borrow one. Engage in a pillow fight.

playingfetchKeep your body in motion. Do it alone or with someone. Pretend you are a child again. Play some kid games. Let go. Hug a tree. Lose yourself in play. Play hide and seek with a friend. Have water fight with water pistols, then switch to buckets!

See how fast you can walk around the shopping mall – time yourself (take someone with you). Wrap yourself in a blanket and roll down a hill. Go roller skating.

Borrow a dog if you don’t have one and take it for a walk and play fetch. Exercise in the park. Go bowling and don’t worry about getting a low score. Go for a swim. LOL (laugh out loud) for no reason at all. See how far or how high you can jump. Climb the monkey bars on a playground. Play catch with a basketball. Borrow a church hymnal, choose a song and sing it to your partner. Run around the block in “slow motion.” ūüėČ (I wanna watch that one).

Having fun at play should be an important activity in the lives of everyone! Play is important because it helps us grow strong and healthy and gives us something more to think about than work, work, work. Use your imagination to make up some of your own stuff to do. Be active.

And did I mention that you it’s best to do these fun things with someone you love? Never grow up enough to stop playing and having fun.

After all that… I’m exhausted! Run! Play! Laugh! Dance! Jump! Love! Especially Love!
