Unleash Your Inner Child: Summer of Fun and Play for Holistic Healing

As a mom and holistic healer, I understand the constant worry that we’re not doing enough to set our children up for success. We often fear that they’ll pick up on our worst traits and somehow struggle in the world. But here’s a powerful reminder: having fun is key to a fulfilling life, and we can learn so much about this from our children.

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s easy to forget the simple joys that once made

us feel alive. Reconnecting with your inner

child and engaging in playful activities isn’t just for kids—it’s a powerful tool for improving your overall well-being. Let’s explore how embracing fun and play can set a great example for your kids, helping them (and us) lead happier, more balanced lives.

The Benefits of Embracing Your Inner Child

1. Improved Memory

Playful activities stimulate brain function, enhancing memory and cognitive flexibility. By engaging in creative and imaginative play, we challenge our brains in new and exciting ways.

2. Better Circulation

Physical activities, even those as simple as dancing or playing games, improve blood flow. This increased circulation boosts oxygen levels in the body, promoting overall health and vitality.

3. Restful Sleep

Fun and relaxation help reduce stress and anxiety, paving the way for deeper, more restful sleep. When we are playful, we release endorphins that naturally calm the mind and body.

Tips to Engage Your Inner Child

Here are three delightful ways to reconnect with your inner child and infuse more fun into your life:

1. Play Games

Set aside time to play your favorite childhood games. Whether it’s a board game, a card game, or even hide-and-seek, let yourself be immersed in the joy of play. This not only fosters creativity but also strengthens social bonds if you play with others.

2. Make Silly Sounds

Allow yourself to be silly and make funny noises. Whether you’re mimicking animal sounds, creating quirky sound effects, or just being goofy, this act of playfulness can lighten your mood and bring laughter into your day.

3. Make-Believe/Cosplay

Engage in make-believe or cosplay activities. Dress up in costumes, create stories, and let your imagination run wild. This not only helps in expressing creativity but also builds confidence and social skills.

Set a Great Example for Your Kids

When we prioritize fun and play, we set a positive example for our children. We show them that it’s okay to take a break, enjoy life, and be present in the moment. This can help them develop a healthy attitude towards life, balancing work with play and stress with relaxation.
