In our hectic, modern lives, many of us focus so heavily on work and family commitments that we never seem to have time for pure fun and socialize with jocular people who make us laugh. Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, we stopped playing. When we carve out some leisure time, we’re more likely to zone out in front of the TV or computer than engage in fun, rejuvenating play like we did as children. But play is not just essential for kids; it can be an important source of relaxation and stimulation for adults as well.
