Play + Science = Transformation

A pioneer in research on play, Dr. Stuart Brown saysGirl free field humor, games, roughhousing, flirtation and fantasy are more than just fun. Plenty of play in childhood makes for happy, smart adults — and keeping it up can make us smarter at any age. Stuart Brown’s research shows play is not just joyful and energizing — it’s deeply involved with human development and intelligence.

Dr. Stuart Brown came to research play through research on murderers — unlikely as that seems — after he found a stunning common thread in killers’ stories: lack of play in childhood. Since then, he’s interviewed thousands of people to catalog their relationships with play, noting a strong correlation between success and playful activity.

I believe that play is pretty important for our survival and wonder, when was the last time you really played?

Engage in transformational kinds of play and you will have a better and more empowered life 🙂
