Play is highly important through all stages of life, no matter who you are, and it aids well-being, de-stresses us and opens our minds to new experiences and helps us learn through physical activity and in the moment creativity and exploration, too.
Personally, I walk a lot, and this could be all I need, but I do feel so much better after a day out at the park with our children, playing, climbing, paddling in the lake and generally just taking time out from the world around us to have a fun day and to just run around free as a child myself, on swings, with the rest of the family!
There is never an age for which I feel you need to turn off play time and I would encourage more people to get up and get outside this summer (and all the year around, when possible) to put a spring in your step and to bring yourself some joy in the moment, while keeping active, too.
Whether you are a fitness fiend, a park pirate, walking wonder or swimmer of lakes, you can be sure to find more inspirational ideas to keep you going this summer by following @Voice_of_Play on social media, with hashtag #playfultrends and share your experiences and stories about how you like to get in your play time!
I would love to hear your thoughts on playtime for everyone, and suggestions on free outdoor play, this summer...
Get up, get active, and play!
