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

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!

Ralf & Kirsten exploring play as a means of supporting rehabilitation after removal of acoustic neuroma
While Ralf picks up OCR as his new hobby, the longstanding couple always makes time for joint activities during which Kirsten tests playful approaches towards restoring full health.
Building up on regular walks in nature, using varied surfaces, logs and benches to train their sense of balance, they additionally incorporate playful falling practice, partner games, as well as dice assigning increasingly complex gait variations (designed by Dr. Mareike Schwed, Neurowerkstatt) which all jointly enhance neuroplasticity and functional recovery.
In the below vid they give a whirl at the Fighting Monkey practice ball and a game of pegs (if you got none, try to tag your partner between the shoulder blades while protecting your own. Possible handicap: Tag one handed, keep the other behind your back.)
If you‘re diagnosed with MS, PD, Neuropathy or similar and would like to learn how to optimally use training to slow disease progress while enhancing quality of life, I warmly recommend the Neurowerkstatt for workshops as well as personal trainings.
If you‘d like to fall back in love with moving, after which lots of good will happen all by itself, take a first step right away: Get up, jump and shake yourself like a madman. 😉

The peg game is travelling usefully Gogoly Yao 🙂 #yay !
Shake up & progress despite screentime
A tool that helps me lots is a simple timer.*
I put it to 29 minutes and, whenever the chime rings, get up and move a bit. How exactly depends on what you need that day or in general. It can range from just briefly jumping in place and shaking out every limb over strengthening weak links up to working on specific goals.
Back – founder, good mornings, superman, back extensions
Pull – inv. rows, flexed hang, jumping ecc., chin-ups, pullups
Push – pushups, dips, rings RTO hold, ring dips
Legs – squats, lunges, shrimp squats, pistols, sissy squats
// → walking lunges, chinese squats
// → ankle hops, precision, broad jump, tuck jumps
Complex – muscle up progressions, all kinds of animal walks (bear, crab, side monkey, lizzard aso), yoga moves, flow, handstands or any mobility stuff you might be working on.
Whatever you decide for, often go for some crazy bouncing & shaking to get your circulation back flowing. When I manage to move often enough I feel much better, and with many little moves spread out all over your day you'll sometimes progress quicker than by one monster session after hours. 🙂

That's the kind of thing I teach in Primal Nature Play. Works well. Thanks for your post... You look great in the photo! ZK
I'm #ADDictedtomove 😉 but still this is a great idea!
You don't have to be fearless.
The most memorable change starts out as small, impertinent acts of courage. #parkour #play #buildering #SeeAndDo ... See MoreSee Less
