Did you know play is the ultimate state of being? I didn’t until I started to allow myself to play.
Does your logical mind want some research to back this idea up? Go here.
I created this list by thinking of how I have kept myself stuck in the ups and downs of life over the years. Maybe you can relate to some of these?
8 Signs You Aren’t Playing Enough in Your Life
#1 You have a hard time making decisions.
Is it the right decision? The right time? OR maybe I should do that instead like Sally is doing because she’s rocking it! Or maybe I need to gather more research…or wait until the stars, sun and moon are aligned and the situation is perfect? (do you get where I’m going with this?)
#2 You feel guilty when you take time for you and leave the domestic duties undone.
The laundry is calling your name and the dishes in the sink are screaming at you….daily!
#3 You say Yes when you want to say No.
Helping and pleasing others is taking over your life and you’re putting them before you! Did you know that No is a complete sentence? Try it and then take a nice big breath and zip it!
#4 You can’t remember the last time you had a drink with friends.
Wait, do I still have friends??
#5 You trip over the shoes at the front door daily and swear under your breath as you begrudgingly put them away.
Oh the joys of family and keeping order in the house! We do have to pick our battles though. Is this one of them?
#6 You’re not making enough money to sustain your desired lifestyle despite everything you’ve tried.
Money flows when we flow. Our limiting beliefs about it block our ability to receive it. When we play we don’t have judgements about anything and life flows better.
#7 You repeat the same story in your head over so often you could write a song about it!
Actually that’s a great idea to creatively express yourself. 😉
#8 You get into arguments with your loved ones about minor stuff…. like putting away their shoes at the front door. (Deep down you know it’s not worth the upset but the subject makes you to want to throw the shoes across the room!)
When we get upset about things that are small and inconsequential that’s a big sign stress is building and it’s time to have some fun!
So how did you do?
Tally up how many of the signs you can relate to and if you answered Yes to 2 or more questions you could definitely benefit from having more play in your life!
I discovered the power of play when I decided to develop a game as a tool for my clients to create transformation in their lives in small daily steps that are fun and enlightening!
I found it interesting I was led to create a game to play with because I needed more play in my life!
I’d love to share more with you about how we do this so if you’re feeling play deprived let’s explore how you can change that!
Learn more about my game called Soul Adventure – Journey to the Real Me and the pilot program I’m hosting this summer where you can play anytime during your day when it’s convenient for you for as little as 10 minutes a day and experience results that will bring clarity, balance and joy to your life…..
And I bet those shoes at the front door will soon invoke gratitude for your loved ones being in your life and maybe a creative way to solve the problem.
Yay for gratefully tripping over shoes!
I wish you a playful and joyous summer of magical moments and lots of fun.
