You don’t need a reason to play. Just play!
You don’t have to play because it helps to relieve stress, prevent burnout or opens up your creative gateways. Just play!
Playing isn’t just about having fun, it is a necessary part of the fabric of an energized life. That is, a life worth falling in love with.

Did you know that a simple renewal break could help you prevent burnout? We live very busy and stressful lives. And the harder we work the more important it is to schedule regular renewal breaks into our schedules. Such breaks are important for accessing our creative energies. And to keep us focused on the things that matter most in our lives.
Can simple positive strategies help you to prevent burnout? How do you prevent yourself from going into overwhelm? How do you deal with the many stressors of an over-committed life?

But is it possible to fuel your day with positive energy in the midst of all the chaos around you?

So how do you prevent burnout? You energize your life by learning to play again.
