The playground of our youth was a training ground

The playground of our youth was a training ground. What did you learn? Myriad things. Did you stop playground activities? You can continue what those playground-esque activities did for you when you were a child. Brain growth in fun and easy ways. Playings of your own creation. The things that cause your brain to change can be of your own devising. You will soon see your creative abilities growing. The entire process will be self reinforcing and self-perpetuating. Momentum. That Newtonian stuff. A body in motion… You will be a body in motion seeking and finding new ideas, new games, new playings, new, new, new –creative, creative, creative. Almost unimaginably fun. All yours. Then yours to share. We are standing on the shoulders of giants. Stephen Jepson neverleavetheplayground.com

Spend your life on the playground

For me the concept of playground includes the following: physical activity, lots of physical activity, a wide variety of physical activity and movement, my socialization in part, girlfriends, boyfriends, balls of various shapes and sizes, slides, merry go rounds, swings, monkey bars, jump rope, Jacks, hopscotch, gaiety, laughter, Inventing new games,Learning to take my turn (smile), being on a team, playing by myself… Certainly not limited to these things. My life is relatively physical (I ride a bicycle for 12 miles 4 to 6 times a week). I practice juggling most days. I do some resistance training (in my life I have done a lot more). I do a wide variety of movement and activity exercises each day. Movement is key. Movement is crucial. Movement sustains us. Spend your life on the playground.
