As the TED-talk speaker was talking about incorporating more “play” into our lives, I realized how little of it I have. Many of the things he was saying were true, like how less play can cause you to have less empathy and emotion. I was probably much nicer and more naive back then when all I had to do was “play”, but I still learned social skills and how to interact in the world. In school now, I learn the steps of photosynthesis and how to calculate the circumference, but not many real world skills that I would use. But now, I want to dedicate more time to “play”, so I can talk to communicate with others and actually learn real-world skills.
