Child in bear costume playing, casting playful shadow on the wall, symbolising lost childhood joy

Beyond the Bear Costume: Embracing Playfulness for Holistic Wellness

May 06, 20242 min read

Does happiness fade away as we get older?

I ask myself this question as I stare at two little kids in bear costumes rocking back and forth. What are they doing? I watch and listen to their laughter, and I smile, too. The laughter is contagious. I look at the wall and see two shadows rocking back and forth - little ears on those bear shadows. God bless them!

Friends and clients talk about how the fun and enjoyment in life are disappearing as they grow older. They talk about how they had so many hopes and dreams as children and teenagers, and now they're just sick, sad, and unfulfilled.

They've lost self-esteem and total trust in themselves. Where are they positioning themselves in life? We all deserve our own respect and a backup plan.

So what do we do?

Self-redirect, no matter what it takes.

It's so easy, so easy, that only a few people actually do it.

One small step, then another, after the motivation arrives and inspiration fades, the lack of laughter returns.

So, stare at the fire 🔥

Listen to the birds 🐦

Stand in the rain 🌧️

Look at the full moon 🌝

Sit in the sun 😎

Take a nap 🛌

Drink the water 💦

Take the supplements 💊

Eat the super greens 🥬

Walk through the door to Narnia 🚪

Put on your jogging shoes 👟

Just move and smile 😊

Watch your health change 🤩

You don't need protection. You are strong like an oxen 🐂

Every moment is special. You create the best YOU one tiny bit at a time.

How can this be a health and wellness focus?

You are who you think you are by what you do- or don't do.

The things you say you will do- but don't.

The things that hold you captive- or not.

An idyllic mix of health, happiness and laughter- or not.

Need to de-lymph your body, do so.

Need to exercise, do so.

Need to change your mindset, do so.

Just show up for yourself.

Need help and advice? Seek it.

Need a nice medicinal herbal tea that you actually like? Seek assistance and enjoy.

Need a good laugh?  A day without laughter is a day wasted.

Put on a costume, get dressed up, and see your funny shadow!
