In our hectic, modern lives, many of us focus so heavily on work and family commitments that we never seem to have time for pure fun. Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, we’ve stopped playing. Playing games is crucial for a child’s development. Play helps to build confidence, develop social skills, learn about caring for others and the environment, develop physical skills, and improve brain function.
Play is not just essential for kids; it is an important source of relaxation and stimulation for adults as well. Play can relieve stress for adults, stimulate the mind and boost creativity, improve relationships, keep us feeling young and energetic.
Of course, I'm not talking about playing computer or mobile games here. Simple thing I just want to say is that we all know the real benefits of play by our heart. But somehow in modern days, for many of us, our fun sources are only limited to TV, computer, mobile and other devices.
However, I believe it’s never too late to develop our playful, humorous side. It's fine to play of our own, but for greater benefits, our play should involve at least one other person, who may be our romantic partner, friends, co-workers, pets, or children. We should spend more playtime with our children and also encourage them to play more with other children. So friends, let's reclaim our inner child, let's be lighthearted, play more, crack joke, pursue hobbies and have fun.. :-)
