The Importance of Play

Play comes easy when we are children. But when we become adults, play has to be a conscious choice – and an important one.

Adulthood brings responsibilities and stresses that we never imagined in our younger days. For a lot of us, that means a complete disconnect from all the things that brought us joy in our youth.

But making play a part of our adult life is essential for our overall well-being. We must reconnect with those activities that brought us pleasure back in the day.

For my husband, that is playing disc golf. I love this photo of him teeing off because this is his fun zone. He earned the name Captain Comet from his buddies – the man has skills.
