One of the main reasons I try to be healthy is so that I can play! That varies from playing sports, to riding my bike outside with my sweetheart, to swim-stalking sea turtles, to crawling all over the floor with my son. My goal is to be able to do these things, along with many others, for as long as I can. I highly advocate finding fun ways to play that will also cover your "exercise" at the same time because you'll enjoy it, which makes it more sustainable long-term. Here's some links to a few articles I suggest reading about some of the benefits of play (like reducing stress, building strength, etc.) or if it's been a while and you need pointers on how to do play.
This challenge may require planning ahead to ensure you're successful in blocking out this precious play time :) My husband has a few days off this upcoming week and so we've already come up with some ideas of what we'd like to do. So far, we're thinking of snowshoeing as a family, skiing (for my husband), taking my son to swim at the Rec Center, possibly ice skating and hopefully another game of volleyball. I'm really excited about this challenge because I tell my husband all the time that we need to play more and now we've got a great challenge to make sure we make it happen this week!
What are some of the things you'd like to do to play this week?
