Do you remember when you couldn’t wait to finish your school work so you could run down to the garden to play with your friends? It seems like a long time ago, doesn’t it? As we grow up, our lives became all about work. Perhaps, that is the reason we need a holiday from our lives every once in a while.
I think it’s important to make time to play, to set aside a little time every day for a hobby that you enjoyed as a child or cultivate a new interest. Attend a painting class, enrol in a theatre workshop or teach yourself to cook one new recipe every week. Never got picked for the school football team? Make one with your friends and play a match every weekend. Have two left feet, join a salsa class.
Not having enough time is a lame excuse—there is always time to play. And time to put yourself first.
