Wellness Wednesday: Play on!

Wellness Wednesday: Play on!

Play isn’t just for the kiddos anymore! Studies find that play is an integral part of adult wellness, and its fun! Whether it’s playing organized sports, board game nights at a pals, or throwing a Frisbee at the beach, here are some of the top reasons play is essential to adults:

• It releases endorphins (pain relieving feel good chemicals!)
• Social interaction through play helps combat depression and memory problems
• Play stimulates the imagination and creativity
• Sharing laughter through play fosters empathy, trust, and compassion <3

So grab your mates, join a Rec Sports league, head to an escape room, or plan a campus games night and play on!
