Secrets of Play! They’re Contagious!
Play is a process! “Play energy” follows me everywhere because of my positive, enthusiastic attitude. I make play a priority because it is a feel good energy that boosts creativity, shifts mood, and increases productivity. I share play energy with others by smiling, laughing, and sharing entertaining stories. I make every event playful! Wherever I go, people know me as the Shine On Girl! Play is an experience that brings joy and raises energy.
Laughter is one of the amazing steps in the process of play shared in my award winning book, SHINE ON!. There is a physical reaction when we laugh! Our blood pressure rises, oxygen fills our lungs, and serotonin levels rise, giving a boost to our well-being. So, start your day with laughter by watching a funny video, reading a humorous quote, or sharing a joke with a friend!
At lunch-and-learn events I bring play into the workplace by helping others laugh and learn the 5 Principles of the Shine On! Message. It is proven that introducing play into your work day will help you feel more energized and productive. How can you add a moment of play to your work day? Take a mini dance break or move around and clap to shift the energy.
Ever wonder why children have so much energy? They recharge with play! This is why parents need play too! Play is as important as structure and offers important lessons in life. Once a week, volunteer one hour of your time at a local kids’ program and lead a fun activity.
Exercise your playful spirit and Shine On!
These are just a few ways to draw more joy and productivity into your life with “play energy”!
