Playful moments: Doing artwork without worrying about result. Just dancing. Turn on the stereo and let myself go. As I find I can’t dance while also being stressed and worried. Keeping children toys on my desk to play with when bored. This included an especially cute beanie baby. I do have a tiny giraffe key chain clipped to my attaché case just for fun. Attending party with friends to play games after feasting on baked potatoes we get to stuff with our own choice of toppings.
Another way to be playful is to spend time around children. They are especially good at it.
