Play isn’t just for the kiddos anymore! Studies find that play is an integral part of adult wellness, and its fun! Whether it’s playing organized sports, board game nights at a pals, or throwing a Frisbee at the beach, here are some of the top reasons play is essential to adults:
• It releases endorphins (pain relieving feel good chemicals!)
• Social interaction through play helps combat depression and memory problems
• Play stimulates the imagination and creativity
• Sharing laughter through play fosters empathy, trust, and compassion <3
So grab your mates, join a Rec Sports league, head to an escape room, or plan a campus games night and play on!
