Play[edit]

They are having so much fun they are jumping for joy!

Skipping, jumping, dancing, singing, fiddling, exploring, imagining, pretending, fantasizing, joking, doodling, visiting, and just goofing off. This is fun, this is play, this is OK. Arnold Toynbee advises: "The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play." May Sarton suggests: "Each day, and the living of it, has to be a conscious creation in which discipline and order are relieved with some play and pure foolishness." Choose how much adventure and excitement you wish to enjoy.

Increase or decrease the time you spend playing to maintain a temperate balance in your life. Although play often involves risk, if your activities become hurtful to anyone it is no longer play.
