4. Play every day. When is the last time you took time to play with abandon? To my grand-pups, there’s nothing quite like chasing balls, retrieving sticks, wrestling, or chewing on squeaky toys. When they play, they’re all in. Life might not be one big recess period, but it can offer a lot of different playgrounds for us if we just take the time to look. As a protégé of play, I’m happy to report that I’m always reminded that every day has at least a few minutes I can carve out to embrace some kind of play.
