The Power of Play!

It’s no secret… We love games, and we love to play!

Unfortunately, we forget that it’s okay to play.  I can’t tell you how many funny looks I get everywhere I go, mostly because I can’t stop PLAYING!  Just ask my clients, they will tell you, but don’t let them fool you… They’ve joined the playing bandwagon.  I believe that games and play provide MEANING!

“Meaning is the feeling that we’re part of something bigger than ourselves.  It’s the belief that our actions matter beyond our own individual lives.  When something is meaningful, it has significance and worth not just to ourselves, or even to our closest friends and family, but to a much larger group: to a community, an organization, or even the entire human species.” (McGonigal, 2011)

So, you might ask, “How do I get meaning in my life?”  It’s really quite simple… connect your daily actions with something larger than yourself, and in the case of exercise: PLAY!

Take a look at this video to see how my clients PLAY, and then look for opportunities for you to do the same.

Move More,
