👋 Dear Playful Soul,
Guiding others through their play history has led me to reflect on my own.
Countless incredible stories have surfaced, filled with fun and playful memories. It’s not so much about dwelling on our past with nostalgia but cherishing those joyful moments and bringing them in the present. Shifting away from the ones we could have done without. 😊
I recently embarked on my own playful experiment. A 1000-piece, colorful jigsaw puzzle, inspired by Agatha Christie – Initially, I hesitated, thinking it a waste of time, with so many things to do! Haha luckily I caught myself and pulled out a big piece of cardboard. 🎨
I embraced the challenge, firstly separated the pieces that had remained stuck together and something wonderful unfolded – I could feel forgotten parts of my mind awakening! Strategies from my past resurfaced; I started with edge pieces, then by color, and slowly it started to come together and small scenes emerged.
By the third evening, I experienced FLOW—a rekindling of mental prowess, I was absorbed. Jigsaw puzzles, I realized, aren’t just calming; they’re a brain workout. Memory recall, problem-solving, patience—all in one activity! 🧠💡
Each piece that found its right spot gave me a spark of joy. Since my aim is to lower my screen time, I consciously chose a physical puzzle over online ones, there is also a very different tactile experience. Don’t have space for a jigsaw puzzle? You don’t have to occupy a table, get a piece of wood or strong cardboard and put it under the bed to save space. No silly excuses should deter play!
Jigsaw puzzles might not be for you. What did you once love that’s fallen by the wayside? 🤔
In our “Ignite Your Play History” sessions, we delve deep into this exploration. You’ll uncover forgotten passions and learn how to infuse them into your life for renewed inspiration and jest for life, all from a jigsaw puzzle! haha 🎉
