Have you ever thought about the importance of play in your life? In episode 58 of Creative Lift, Living the Artful Life: Permission to Play, we’ll chat about how you might give yourself permission to play.

Anyone who’s been reading this blog for any length of time knows that I firmly believe that play is not just for children – in this episode, we’ll discover one way in which play has great impact. We all know that the amount of energy we have when we approach a task is essential. If we experience our task as a slog, it likely will take more time and what we produce will often be of less quality. When that same task is framed as play, it can become buoyant, which speeds up the work, makes the work fun, and also often creates stronger, more inspired results. From cooking to designing our days, play can unlock our creative energy and give us the momentum we need to move forward.

What possibilities might giving yourself permission to play unlock for you this week?
