EVEN IF YOU love the work you do, are traveling around the world in search of adventure, or are working your little heart out toward spiritual enlightenment, sometimes the daily grind just takes over.
We forget about one of life’s most important qualities: play.
From the photographer who shot the above scene:
In Rishikesh (upper India) which is a spiritual abode of yogis from across the world, I saw a bunch of yogis in a rare playful mood. So much so, I caught one taking a playful shortcut. It was very nice to see that. I realised he may have given up everything in life but there is still a bit of child left in him, which sometimes makes him be on air.
Since it is Friday, stop whatever you are doing for 10 minutes and go do something that you consider to be fun as hell (as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else). Swing on a swing, jump on a trampoline, play hopscotch. Or go have a scotch (probably best to do at the end of the day).
Just be sure to do it with gusto, and most importantly, awareness.
Bet these yogis are highly aware of their feet hitting the water.
What are you going to do with your 10 minutes of play? Share your fun moments below!
