What is Play?

Happy Monday! As we start our work week, I wanted to remind us all of the importance of play. What exactly is play?

Play is light hearted and enjoyable. When it stops being fun, people stop playing. It is voluntary yet it operates within given boundaries. It is trivial although the outcomes are often highly significant. It is completely absorbing, the opposite of repetition and routine. And finally, it is necessary in order to live a meaningful existence.

We can (and should) grow up but we should never stop playing.
