Play, and our brains.

Posted: November 16, 2020

I love to read.  These days, it's mostly in audio format. And I've decided that I want to share some of my favorite books in 2020.

So, I talk to many, many parents who want their kids to be their best.  In fact, that is why they bring them to Full Life.  My hat's off to you parents, because many of you are among the most loving, concerned, do-it-better-than-I-had-it types of parents.  Truly, the best.

Well, I've been listening to the book Play, by Stuart Brown, MD. (Pick it up! It's an excellent read.)

Chronic stress and our brains.

We have nine weeks to the end of 2020.  

Yes.  That's right. Nine weeks. 

Which means that we have spent approximately 36 weeks out of this year in a stressed out, fearful place.

So we moved right before Christmas to 13544 S. Route 30, Unit 104, Plainfield, and some of you had the chance to see our water bottle Practical Application.

The lead instructor would drink from a water bottle, and talk about how the bottle holds the water in place, allowing it to be contained, and hence, useful.

I suspect everyone remembers the scene in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade when Indiana Jones makes that leap of faith onto the invisible bridge.

If you don't, here it is:

Harrison Ford reads from his father's book "Only in the leap from the lion's head will he prove his worth."

So, one of my favorite movies is Pinocchio.  And one of my favorite quotes is "Prove yourself brave, truthful, and unselfish, and someday, you will be a real boy" spoken by the blue fairy. Well, I think that blue fairy was onto something.

When I was a young mom, this quote was very dear to my heart, because this was the big vision I had for my sons.  I used to call them gentlemen, even though sometimes they were rough-and-tumble crazy heads who were not so nice to each other.  I really wanted to point them into becoming men who were brave, truthful and unselfish.
