"Go Play!" - It's National "Summer Leisure" Day!

In stark contrast to other orders they may receive from you at times, kids most likely jump at the opportunity when they are told to "Go Play!"

Surprisingly though, we should be telling ourselves to do the same thing!

Somewhere along the road between childhood and adulthood, we restrain our imaginations, stifle our abilities to play in joyful abandon and turn in our "fun" caps for "responsibility" caps. The truth is that playing can be a great source for stress management, helping with adaptability, fostering relationships while also helping to manage negative emotions and experiences. Playing nourishes the small creative parts of us that may lay forgotten in the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

It's true, "playing" can be equally beneficial for you as it is for your kids. There is scientific evidence that this basic biological drive may be as vital to our health as food and sleep!

So there it is, do you need anymore reasons to get out there and play? Get out there and relive your childhood, and of course, don't forget to bring your Adora Dolls!
