Nurturing mental health

~ by Irmi L

George Bernard Shaw said: “We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing”.

In the middle of life's demands, learning to play is a potent skill for nurturing your mental health. As a fellow working woman, I understand the unique challenges you face. The pressure of work, family, and societal expectations can take a toll on your well-being.

One of the most beautiful aspects of play is its ability to stimulate creativity and reduce stress. Even just a few minutes of play each day can make a world of difference in your mental health. By embracing play, you not only enhance your own mental health but also set a beautiful example for those around you. You teach them the value of self-care and finding joy in life's simplest pleasures.

Finding time for play might seem challenging, but it's about carving out small moments for yourself. During your lunch break, before bedtime, or incorporating play into your daily routine with loved ones – every moment counts.

So, let's make a promise to ourselves today: prioritise your mental well-being by embracing play in all its forms. Dance, laugh, sing, paint, write – give yourself permission to be carefree, even if it's just for a little while.

Remember, you are worthy of love, joy, and happiness. Embrace the power of play and let it be your refuge when life feels overwhelming.
