Whatever playfulness means to you, engage in it. Whether it's playing indoor or outdoor games, watching comedies, or taking your dog to the park, if it turns you on, go for it. Being around children reawakens the magical qualities of presence, joy, and laughter.

Look at your life and see where you can bring in more fun: at work, at home, with friends, with your partner. Whenever you are doing an "unfun" activity, such as waiting in line at the grocery store, sitting in traffic, or tackling a difficult report at your desk, see if you can change your attitude. Find a way to bring a playful quality to your situation: strike up a positive conversation with the next person in line, make exasperated (but smiling!) gestures to your fellow drivers, bring some humor to your report, or stand up from time to time, stretch and smile, then sit down again and continue the report. Do whatever works for you and your situation. Be creative. Then the chances are very good that you'll write a great report, arrive home in a good mood, and make new friends.
