At one time or another, I’m sure that every parent has ordered a child to ‘Go Outside and Play’.
Translation: stop whining, get some fresh air, and work off some of that misdirected energy.
What if we took that advice to heart ourselves? What if outside meant more than just outdoors?
Suppose outside meant outside our cares, outside our concerns, outside our everyday habits of life and work.
And what if play meant more than riding a bike or kicking a ball?
What if play meant entertaining new ideas, connecting with new people, or trying new things?
Go ahead. Give yourself permission to go outside and play this week!
- What threshold will you step over?
- What world will you explore?
- What difference could it make to your well-being?
