The Importance of playing

Many people don’t realize that playing is not just for children. We as adults need to incorporate some form of play regularly. Many peer reviewed journals say that play helps us to become more creative, relieve stress, and feel better. All of these contribute to a better quality of life.

“Imagine walking down the street and hearing laughter and hollering coming from around the corner. You assume it is a group of kids playing. When you turn the corner you see adults, some of whom are blindfolded and being led around by other adults. Balls are flying through the air as the blindfolded people are trying to tag other blindfolded people. In the midst of it all you see that these people are clearly having fun.

For years parents have been told about the importance of play for their children, but what about the importance of play for grown-ups? The National Institute for Play believes that play can dramatically transform our personal health, our relationships, the education we provide our children and the capacity of our corporations to innovate.

Perhaps you have heard the saying, ‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.’ There is probably more truth to the saying than most realize. Research indicates that without play it is hard to give your best at work or at home…”

So embrace your inner child. Throw pine cones, play tag, jump in puddles, and when fall rolls around step on that crunchy leaf

Conway’s Way: House of Lies

Alright all You beautiful people its That time again for yet another NETFLIX AND CHILL suggestion. This week I am going with the series ‘House of Lies’. If you like the series ‘Suits’ don’t read any further, this show is just
as good. If thats not the case, well, here’s an explanation of what the show is all about. Don Cheadle or Marty Kaan is a massive narcissist with a God complex who is one of the top business consultants out there. He pretty
much doesn’t give a fudge about anyone but getting his. Plenty of shenanigans, hi jinx and tom foolery and over all just a weird supporting cast. Do you know what? The show works. It’s great! Shut up and watch it.
There’s not really that much tom foolery. Lots of emotional terrorism not on you the audience but people in the show.

Lucky Charm

  1. Susan has just returned from a trip to Turkey and returned with a gift for the Zone, which you will see hanging on the door as you enter the gym.

The Lucky charm of Turkey, Nazar Boncuk is the blue eye amulet made from glass.
Nazar means eye and is associated with the look of the evil eye. In Egyptian antiquity it was the eye of Horus. The blue-eyed amulet, is believed to bounce back the hurtful intention of the instigator of a spell. It also absorbs the negative energy emanating from (conscious or unconscious) jealous or envious glances. Positioned where it is will keep bad luck from the gym. Thank you Susan.
