Unleash Your Play Brain: Play Your Way Towards a Happier Adulthood
Have you lost your mojo or got bored with life? Are you stuck in a rut and can’t quite figure out how to get out of it? Does work keep getting in the way of your dreams? Have you reached a crossroads and don’t know which way to go?
If you answered “Yes” to one or more of these questions then it’s time act swiftly before the zombie virus gnaws away the last bit of your brain and stymies forever your chances of turning your hopes and wishes into reality.
Join Portia Tung, Playmaker 001 and founder of The School of Play, on a whirlwind interactive mini adventure through the science and history of play and how play is essential for adult development and well-being. Play your cards right and you’ll leave with plenty of ideas to nurture your inner chimp and make more of your inner human’s dreams come true.
What you will learn:
A working definition of play
The benefits of play
Reasons to play more
