Recess Time


How about setting a bell to go off throughout the day for a little recess time to play, laugh and/or have some fun time?

Play Time . . .

I get out and about in the community I live in and pick up on some interesting things going on. I was on a bike ride and heard laughter in the park I biked past. There was a group of people gathered just laughing. Then I was walking past a school and it was recess time. I heard the teacher state to the kids, “I did not state to sit down, but run, run to burn off the energy”. Ha!

Playing is a great release, especially for adults! Put down the work and just play. Create. Try new things. Get curious and explore. Go on an adventure!

Getting Curious, Exploring and Adventuring . . .

Find you inner kid! Kids play hard and really immerse themselves in their play. To feel that overwhelming fun that brings one joy and happiness. To have an ounce of that kid energy!

It is so not a waste of time! Take a break from the doing and the busyness. Your tiredness may just find a second wind in taking time to play!

  • It is freeing, releasing and re-energizing.
  • It is a sense of belonging when play involves the community you live in.
  • It is a release of mental energy in getting out of your head and physically moving your body for a change of pace.
  • It is tapping into our best selves by having fun and being fun and social around others again.
  • The BEST is it just makes your day, puts a smile on your face and a skip in your step!

I love going on adventures, riding my bicycle and recently got the trivia bug again. I enjoy taking an evening walk around my neighborhood to see who is out and about and what is going on.

The Little Things

I love taking pleasure in the little things throughout my day! A cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Reading a good book or a movie with popcorn. Anything that motivates and inspires me. It just boosts my mood and brightens my day!

Cheers & Celebrations!!!

Connecting and Sharing

I have been reaching out more and connecting with family and friends! I did not realize how much I was missing that lately. It makes me feel good and gives me a much need burst of energy! I love sharing that energy and positivity with others.

Communicating . . . Connecting . . . Interacting . . . Engaging . . .


I am doing a lot of writing lately! I enjoy taking the time to brain storm and brain dump. I love reading to get ideas for blog fodder in creating blog posts. I find it to be such a fun process lately!


I enjoy a great creative streak! My best creation is my blog. It fuels and feeds my whole being. A great outlet to get myself lost in!

Creating . . . Writing . . . Reading . . .

Book Party

I love picking up a stack of books at the library! I cannot wait to decide which one to read first.


I have not fed this passion in a while! I need to start taking photos again.

Getting Outside

I love getting outside to walk and hike! It is relaxing and refreshing. It is great exercise too. I love soaking up my surroundings and reveling in the solace and solitude!

Becoming One With Nature

Trying New! Things

I enjoy being able to try new things! It breaks up the daily grind and gets me out of my daily routine. I get energy from being curious and wanting to do something new and different! I enjoy learning, exploring and experiencing.

Taking the Train for a Day Trip


I love that every day is a new day with a new start! I am in control of the day that I will have. I enjoy being able to take the time to focus on one thing and be in that moment. I love when I do that one thing that just makes my day and makes me happy!

Here’s to Relaxing, Recharging and Reenergizing Yourself By DOING the ENJOYable!!! Love to Hear What You Have Been Doing, Please Share!


Letting the Kid Inside of You Out

I really have 2 inner childs; the creator and the explorer! I love letting my imagination and creativity just go. I enjoy being outdoors and exploring. I love being a kid in a grown up body!

What is your inner child like? Love to Hear!

Do you take the time to connect with your inner child? It is so important! When things are not going well in my life I look to my inner child to life my spirits and get me moving again. Remember the wonder and playfulness!

Do you take the time to nurture your inner child? So worth it! In nurturing my inner child I am able to connect from the inside out and just refocus on what matters in my life. Remember the happiness and enjoyment!

Do we ever really grow up? I Hope Not! Life Would Be So Boring!!!

Young at Heart

Age is Just a Number!

Your zest for life comes from doing it and living it every day! Do not let your age define or stop you from enjoying and taking pleasure in your life. Life is too darn short to dwell on what you cannot do or should not do. Grab Life & Get Out There!

I do not want to relive my 20s; been there done that! I am hitting my stride in life and loving it! I am young at heart and love letting my inner child out to play. One reason I love to travel, explore and adventure.

20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s

I am still trying to find that grown up career where I can do 15 to 20 years! Maybe that is overrated. I am not currently doing what I love 40 hours a week. However, I have plenty of hobbies to fill the void!

Switch IT Up

Break the Routine

Do you feel like a human on a treadmill going no where fast somedays? It is just a means to end; getting in your exercise for the day, week and/or month. I find it a little ironic that we sit and commute to work, sit at work (good majority do), sit and commute to the gym, and then go home to sit some more or lay down for 4 to 6 to 8 hours. Think about that for a minute!

Breaking the Chain/Routine! (Photo by RSheridan)

Any wonder why we might be bored and want to break free of the routine? I realize that this is part of living life. However, I am not all that amazed about how much time I sit on my arse and how I have become a slave to technology. You cannot even escape technology at the gym! At least it helps with the boredom, right!

Remember PLAYING as a kid. It was FUN! I try to pick activities I enjoy when it comes to exercising. I do try to challenge myself though too by switching up my routine, maybe taking in a class or checking out a new machine. I just feel a little more motivated exercising when I enjoy the activity!

Some Tricks

  • Switch up your routine
  • Improve your skills
  • Increase your intensity not the duration (hey less time exercising, I like)
  • Find Your Inner Child & Play

The Best Reward is When Your Hard Work Pays Off in RESULTS You Can See and Makes You Feel Better Too!
