Play on Election Day

Play on Election Day © Lynn Wiles 2020
The windows in Boston are boarded up & the National Guard has been deployed. Last week I heard on a podcast the importance of play when stressed. Their definition of play was 1) Time spent without purpose 2) Activities where you lose track of time and 3) When you are free to be yourself without inhibition. So somehow between work, construction, and election stress, I’m going to try to incorporate play. I hope you are able to do the same with or without an election.

  • I like the photograph. I think you’ll be busy for a while with that digger and truck before you get all the leaves cleared away!
    I agree. Play is important. Often, emotionally and spiritually we box ourselves in with our behaviour. Play is a reminder of how daft some of our grown up traits can be. In relation to wellbeing, health and happiness it can help us reflect on things that matter most that perhaps our grown up selves can sometimes forget.
    As for the election, I cannot imagine how stressful it must feel. We are getting lots of news coverage over here and I’ve seen places being boarded up! These are times I never wanted to witness even from thousands of miles away.
    I stop now so you can finish clearing up the leaves… 🙂
    Best wishes and keep safe

      I prefer the construction vehicles in toy mode to the loud ones behind my house! This year has been like none before in my life. I fear the next year will be stress provoking as well. So find your way to play and enjoy!

  • It’s so stressful for us Canadians watching our neighbors and the shock of how close it has been – I can’t imagine how you must be feeling but today there is so much light and hope that I bet some of that stress is lifting! 🙂
