The Practice of Play for Adults Seeking Natural Stress, Pain, and Anxiety Relief!

The Practice of Play for Adults Seeking Natural Stress, Pain, and Anxiety Relief!

Would you let me tell you the story of learning about what it means to play again as an adult while showing how I actually do it during this live music video composition? All of us start as a child understanding how to play and benefiting from it. My daughter at less than two years old spends half her day playing without any goal for the outcome. As a young man, I started to forget what it meant to play as I started playing video games which initially were just for fun. In my teenage years, games started to be less fun and started more to be battles where I always had a certain objective to conquer in the game. Growing up a little more to an adult, I quickly lost most of a sense of true recreation in my life as I associated productivity with self-worth and playing as a waste of time. The moment of awakening came when I realized that what I thought was play in spending hours on League of Legends and Call of Duty rarely fit a wholehearted definition of play like Brene Brown uses.
