The Power of Play for Safety and Emotional Regulation

Uncategorized Dec 03, 2019
 

Hi friends, 

I hope the last week was filled with Thanks and connection time. 

I had a wonderful holiday with my mother and my youngest sister and her family. I love any opportunity to reflect and give thanks for the many blessings I have. 

This week, we discuss play. I often say, "What would you do if you had spare time? Would you hang out with people you don't like, doing things you aren't any good at?" The answer is no. When we have spare time, we want to fill it with play. 

Play is the language of kids. So, we, as adults, need to make extra effort to play. We also have to understand that much of play is developmental. Babies aren't born knowing how to navigate a recess filled with so many kids and less supervision. 

Play is especially important for emotional regulation during the holiday season. This week's blog covers all of that!

 I mentioned the Holiday Tele-seminar I did a couple weeks ago in this video. The next 6 weeks are filled with all sorts of dysregulation. If you'd like access to the recording, just click here for more details on how to get that.

I appreciate every one of you who takes the time to listen to these each week and shares them with your circle of people. Each week, as you email me the Word of the Week, I am humbled by the stories you share, the amount of people who show up for this each week, and your vulnerability on this journey. 

Have a great week. 

Go Be You, 

Stacy
