We can all stand to stop taking ourselves too seriously, at least some of the time. Yes, things in life are serious. At times, maybe a little too serious. But, part of being awake — being 100 percent mindful — is focusing on one thing.

Having a playful and curious philosophy toward life offers many benefits. It leads to enhanced relationships, better mental health, and a more expansive view of life. Being playful doesn’t mean never taking life serious or dealing with responsibility, but is more of an approach and perspective to have fulfilling and gratifying interactions with others and more amusing experiences.

When was the last time you let yourself be truly amused and let go of apprehension from worry and fear?

    You are right. That is one of the secrets of long life. That is why God invented a sense of humor and playtime, oh and silly pets. Thank you, Gary
