This week my kiddos are on spring break. We are off to the beach for some play time and to soak in our own vacation rhythm.
When I was working in my corporate job this time always was more stressful than I wanted, as I wanted to take the time to be with them, but it was always challenging taking a week off of work.
But now, this week is about adventure and play! I'm excited to take this time both to be with them, and to refocus on play in my work as well.
From that perspective of play, I realize how over the last few months I have shifted into listening daily to what I really want in my work. This creates more ease and flow. And I do distinguish between ease and easy, I can work my butt off from a place of inspiration, instead of from a place of stress. This is what I want in my work. (It's not always like this, but when it isn't, I get to peel away more layers to see what is present to be explored.)
What do you want in your work?
If you were to incorporate more play in your work, and in each day, what might you experience? What would have to be true to have more fun and play?
Who might you attract to your business?
Here are a few simple steps that can help you to be willing to add more fun and play into your day.
1. Make time for movement every single day - So I said movement, not exercise (you can exercise too) ;). This is about something fun that you truly enjoy every day. Today, I played a little game of baseball on the beach with my kids. We used a stick for the bat and the dogs ball.
2. Develop a morning practice - This is something that connects you back to your truth, and your intentions, and with this practice, it is easier to stay connected throughout the day. A morning practice could consist of meditation, writing, setting intentions for the day, and more. I would love to hear what your morning practice looks like.
3. Define what is fun - I don't know about you, but for me this is something that changes over time. Before kids, after kids, with kids, without. :) Make a lift of your top 10 (or 5) things that you can do that is truly fun. That way you can always have access to an idea when you need it.
I would love to hear from you! What do you do for fun, what does your morning practice look like if you have one, what movement do you love? Share in the comments below.
