"Press Play" was a recent TED Radio hour....

In the episode, TED speakers describe how all forms of amusement — from tossing a ball to video games — can make us smarter, saner and more collaborative. 

WaHoO~ so true!  As we "adult",  it's imperative to weave play into our day... little playful pick-me-ups to get from A to B to C can go a long way.    

Advance of the Science of Play

"A huge amount of existing scientific research — from neurophysiology, developmental and cognitive psychology, to animal play behavior, and evolutionary and molecular biology – contains rich data on play. The existing research describes patterns and states of play and explains how play shapes our brains, creates our competencies, and ballasts our emotions."
