About

Her book is Stop Boring Me! View All Posts. Image via BigStockPhoto. As a storyteller and an improviser, I get asked about humor a lot. I was invited to speak to a company a few weeks back on this exact topic.

Description

I was 25 and traveling through Ireland by myself. I was in Cong, a rural small town outside of Galway. It was quiet. Very quiet. Even though I had met people on my trip, I was starting to feel lonely. I was thousands of miles from home.

I went on a walk in a local park, along a wide stream that emptied into a small, pristine pond. The weather was grey and gloomy, the park was damp and romantic-looking, with its bending trees and dark water. As I had practically lived in the backyard, building intricate tiny villages, exploring the spaces in between plants and trees, making tree roots into cottages and lumps of mud into hillsides. It calmed me down and got me away from sometimes troubling thoughts. In Ireland, I found the same thing happened: My loneliness and anxiety vanishedand an hour or so later when I finished, I felt better: lighter, and less worried.

Topics for “playful”

When we lose ourselves in play, whether creating a make-believe world, throwing a ball between friends, frolicking with our dog, or watching silly YouTube videos, we allow ourselves to get out of the linear, problem-solution, adult mindset.

We see things in new ways. Let them show you the way and leave your grownup mind behind! Then just go wherever you are drawn. Let your playfulness lead the way. Have fun. Keep them where you spend a lot of your hours and play with them whenever you get bored or creatively blocked.

Being human

Get some kids games, art supplies, even pieces of costumes, and just hang out and have fun. Make the goal to be to laugh as much as possible. They love to run and jump! Even just watching dogs play can be fun! Count the you see by the time you get to work. Do it alonedo it with friends, do it with strangers, but just dance. Any style, any place.
