The play advice you might have received

  • What are you even slightly interested in or curious about today? This removes the need to look for a capital P passion.
  • Who are you jealous of ? What are the underlying interests and values of that jealousy and how might they translate into play? For instance, if you envy people with lots of money, perhaps a form of play for you might be to save up to spend a day living lavishly.
  • What or who makes you laugh ? Why? Noticing your own body’s reactions is a wonderful hint for the overactive mind.
  • What do you do if you have no access to entertainment or books? Think about the future? Reminisce about the past? Admire the things around you? These are all subtle indicators of larger play activities, for instance planning imaginary futures, writing about the past, appreciating and creating beauty.
