If you wanna do folks a favor, tempt them to play!
Aside from turning us physically abler, physical play contributes to empathy, sharing, cooperation and trust while at the same time improving self-regulation, impulse control and creative solution finding. All qualities that render you more capable at dealing with stressful circumstances; enable you to maintain sound relationships, fend off depression, addiction, escapism and stay upbeat even in sight of dire straits. Oh and laugh at fails, as detailedly documented. 😉
In my experience it works like a charm: People thaw, drop pretenses, become more natural and cooperative. Also, with regular doses, oft enough gradually turn their lives around. Same for myself. What are your experiences and preferred games?

All it takes to excel at something are 10000 hours of deep practice. 😀
- based on Daniel Coyle, the talent code
How to practice deeply?
• Chunk it up
Divide big or scary tasks into small steps. Start with the basic progression. Play with tempo, rhythm and variations. Observe and imitate moves of folks who do great. Take one tiny step at a time.
• Practice quality
... to automate quality. Mindlessly repeating flawed patterns paves the way to the dark side. (It doesn't bring wished for results thus is frustrating, makes you waste energy on doubting yourself, and takes lots of time to rewire.) Thence, if you practice A LOT and still don't see any progress, do yourself a favour and recheck exactly what you do. E.g. film yourself, analyse, research, ask experienced folks for tips on what you should focus on. (Cheers Ryan, Amos, Aaron & esprit concrete team)
• Become aware
...which move feels good? Why? What's the causal link? What improves things? Fix, repeat, progress.
If you realize it's fear that makes you revert to flawed patterns, return to a progression that allows high-quality moves and keep automating. And then of course...
• Love what you do
...it's fuel, helps overwrite fear and makes it much easier to stay dedicated. <3

Das sehe ich ja jetzt erst ! Wie wunderschön! Ach was das GEIL ! Wenn ich wieder in der Gegend bin freu ich mich auf euch ! Astrid Bösser Eva Rex ! ! !
In rough and tumble play -besides training skills, reflexes, strength & ruggedness- your face lights up, you laugh, forget worry & show a glint of your soul.
Knowing the feeling, who wonders that play is a natural and vital part of life for most mammals as well as a number of smart birds like raven and parrots. So called primitive people too instinctively know its value. Only in our society its worth is nearly forgotten and, as with other once natural elements of life, it now takes scientists to research and confirm the benefits of such apparently unproductive pursuits -- and rebels & oddballs to reestablish it in our culture.
Why, play contributes to trust, empathy, sharing, cooperation, resilience, self-regulation, sustained optimism and more -- especially in the face of real world challenges.
"The consequences of adult play deprivation (on the other hand) are: lack of vital life engagement; diminished optimism; stuck-in-a-rut feeling about life with little curiosity or exploratory imagination to alter their situation; predilection to escapist temporary fixes…alcohol, excessive exercise, or other compulsions; a personal sense of being life’s victim rather than life’s conqueror." -Dr. Brown, bit.ly/playdeprivation
Interestingly, all symptoms that abound in our society. So, in case you register any of the above, before resorting to other therapies -- give rough play a go and see whether it might not put a sparkle back into your eyes!

No upcoming events
Nudge and carry along each other
Oft enough there's a wide gap between 'mean' and 'do'
One of the things I intended for two or three years now is to go for cold plunges.
Why? I like the idea. Asides from being decidely cool, it's free and there's zillions of benefits – physical as well as mental.
But then... it's Winter and they're cold.
What helped me eventually jump off is to fix dates with friends (especially Tina Rehm, ta!) -- for once you're out on that cold beach together there's no way either of you would bitch out.
Same obviously works for a number of worthwhile habits or undertakings. What's near and dear to you for a while? Ask out a friend, get going and create memories!

Can't wait for the next time when we finally move into our lake again!! 😁💪😍 #strongandcool
Very cool. I started with cold showers a few months ago. It's very important to learn to deal with discomfort.
Das Bild ist ein Fake, oder Wahnsinnge?🤔
Du bist verrückt. Das sage ich mit allergrößtem Respekt 😉
Echt cool wie du das durchziehst dieses Jahr 😊
Schöne Frau ❤️
Nothing in nature is static or isolated. Once you learnt some moves, new joy comes with stringing them together and smoothing out transitions.
How to start? If you‘re on your own, take any three moves you currently practice, be they on the ground or involving obstacles, and figure out fluent transitions. You could also choose an especially useful order like 'land, roll, run'. As a team, let one person come up with a first move, everyone copy that before the next mate goes again and adds on another move -- with as few as possible steps between.
Come up with nice flows? Link us your own!
Cheers to Amos Galileo Rendao and Ryan Ford for this neat flow suggested in their online course Parkour 102, available via Parkour EDU

If you like someone, give him a wrestle.
It's rarely by overuse that we grow frail but by lack of motion.
So ask out friends, lure them outdoors and rock each other. 😁 ... See MoreSee Less

Urban chase (game)
Slick walls, natural stones and a tail – how fast can you safely go?
1. find a route that includes changing surfaces, gaps and obstacles
2. figure out how to navigate grounds quickest while staying intact
3. chase one another along the course, learn and improve as you go
• rock-paper-scissors to determine who‘s hunter or prey
• Play as a variant of ‚the ground is lava‘
• Demand certain stretches to be crossed in specific ways – like on all fours or clinging to a wall
What other ideas come to mind? Please share!
