I will have to get one of those I love hula hoops I used to be pretty good at it when I was a kid. Thanks for reminding me. I guess I will have to practice again now though.

The more advanced the mind, the greater the need for the simplicity of play.
Isnt that why we have kids? joke

Power Snooze, Power Meal, Power walk, Power Play...

I have a hula hoop?

Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success.
Planless gaol=a wish
Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss.
Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction.
Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions.
Purposely choose your thoughts-what you believe-you achieve-Be careful what you think

Today's Small Change: Take time to play.
Power Play
When you were a kid in school, there was usually a break in the middle of the day for recess time set aside specifically so you could play.
Consider how often you play today. Play can be considered any activity that you find pleasurable or enjoyable. Play is crucial to our mental creativity, health, and happiness yet adults tend to forget about the importance of having fun.

Many of us try to multitask to make the most of our "free" time. You agree to give yourself a few minutes to relax outside but then take your laptop along to catch up on work. You're having lunch with a friend or playing some pickup basketball when your cell phone rings to interrupt you.

Think you're too busy to have fun? Think again. Carving time out of your schedule for play might seem self-indulgent, but its results make it worthwhile. In fact, research shows that employees who play feel happier and more relaxed and are more productive at work. Even a brief play break a few minutes spent doing something fun or relaxing can serve as a "mini vacation" that will add pleasure to your day while reducing stress.

Play can be anything that you enjoy spending time pursuing a hobby, practicing a musical instrument, going bowling or shooting pool, or teasing your cat with a new mouse toy. The only requirement is that it's fun for you.

Today, take at least five minutes for a mini-vacation or play break. Then, going forward, try to incorporate these play breaks into your regular daily routine. Hopefully, you'll find yourself reinvigorated as you get back in touch with your family, your friends, your pet, or your favorite pastime.



God Bless,
Linda
