All Work And No Play Makes Johnny Have Dull Teachers

Happy Friday, teachers! The school year is officially back into full swing, and I bet most of you are working your butts off this week. Thank goodness it’s Friday, am I right? This weekend make sure to have some fun and put the work down. Just like you students, you need to play. Yes, I said play!

We think of play as something for children, but studies show that adults benefit from play too. A few benefits of play include relieving stress, improving brain functioning, boosting creativity, and helping your relationships. How awesome is that?

Maybe you don’t love running around. That’s okay. Play can be crossword puzzles, games, sketching, or any activity that you do for pure enjoyment. Choose play that makes you happy!

Grab a friend, your partner, or children this weekend and get out and play!
