We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing. – George Bernard Shaw
I recently reflected upon my time schedule and couldn’t help but notice how rigid I had become over the years. Up at 4 AM, working out by 4:30 AM, reading in my office by 6:15 AM and so on. I rarely allowed for an exception, almost like it was non-negotiable. Those were things I put in place and maintained without much flexibility to “play.”
I am learning to change the rules, be balanced and play more. Play with your significant other, your children, broader family and even by yourself (e.g. gaming, puzzles, whatever you like to do). It’s healthy and we don’t get the time back.
Have a great day!
