Making Time In The Day For Play

There seems to always be so much to do. From tasks at work to errands and house chores. Just to keep track of it all I’ve used various daily planners and to do lists. A planner I used last year called for me to monthly rate how I felt I was doing various areas of my life. Some of these areas included health, relationships, and PLAY.

Play: Engage in activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose.

Play? I had never rated myself in play before. As I did, month over month play was my lowest rating. And in the grand scheme of things, that is okay. I am 26, I have my health, my family, a job, my world is not crashing down around me. But I've also felt burned out before from all work and no play and when looking back on my past year and decade, the things that make me smile are the times high in play. How high or low would you rate yourself in play?

In this blog I will write about what is helping me improve myself and my life and how I am incorporating more enjoyment.

Genesis 21:6 NIV God has brought me laughter.

Here are 3 things you can expect from this blog:

1. Life Management

Time management, relationship management, stress management, money management, etc. We are all managing a lot. I plan to share what is helping me progress.

2. Local Travels

There is plenty to do in my own region. I love where I live and I plan to share the places, new and old, that I spend my time.

3. Things Outside of My Comfort Zone

There are so many things I am not good at and though I don't expect to master basket weaving or ballet, I want to do more things that get me out of my comfort zone. I plan to let you know what I try and how it goes.

Thanks for reading my first blog post! I love that you are here. If you enjoyed this post, there is more to come every Tuesday. Talk to you then!
