I love running as a tool for stress relief and a healthy way to compete with yourself but I wanted to inject my runs with a little fun so I decided to map my run and post what they look like online and ask friends to join in, helping me tag my routes as famous people, movie scenes, food items and anything you can think of! I also create routes with images in mind and see where they take me. I have found this motivates me to run further and faster.

People add PLAY into my life. without those around us we wouldn't have the motivation or drive to push further. The ideas, innovations, and creations we see today are a result of PLAY: Humans

I add play to my life every opportunity! With the mentality that all you need to do is say "Yes!" There are a million fun things to do with friends and events around my city. If anything there isn't enough time in a day or even enough days in the week! Just this past weekend was filled with visiting friends, a 30th birthday party, a wedding, so much dancing, and hiking the parks and playing tourist my own city!

I add play into my life by keeping myself busy with activities and projects that I enjoy and help get me a step closer to my aspirations!

I wrestle with my puppy and take him on walks outside! we both love the time with nature :-)

I add play in my life by spending time with close friends to upcoming events seeing as I live in a small town. Also, because I am a college student with a limited budget I try my best to have fun and scope to see if there is any free events around campus or take my daily workout in the gym with my exercising buddy. I do go to season events such as Halloween fright mare farms where many are willing to get scared out of their minds with a haunted house and thrilling hayrides. At the end of the day, kicking a soccer ball or playing Jenga with the roommates is how I make Play into my life! :)

I add play to my life by reading for fun! Books are the easiest way for me to add some play to my day.

Me and my pup Zoey play everyday. Soccer is by far her favorite game... besides chasing squirrels!

Taking walks with my older dogs. Even at this age they still love to play!

I go to the park! Sometimes I take a free exercise class offered by my city, and other times I go with friends or my boyfriend to play cards at a picnic or kick around the soccer ball. It's great to let all the ''adult'' things go-- work stress, worries about bills, etc.-- and just play and relax like kids again!

I love to exercise and dance with my kids. They motivate me to look at exercise differently, and they bring back the fun!

Play doesn't have to be a physical activity, any snippet of conversation or gesture that elicits a smile or laugh from your fellow human is play. I try my best to make awkward situations fun. Like juking fellow pedestrians when we walk head on in the street, twirl around lamp posts, and jump IN puddles whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Climb and hike outside! Nature is the best place for play.

Hiking with the dog! I'm amazed at how much my dog encourages me to be playful and curious in nature, and bring my attention to small details I would normally overlook.

For the past year, I've started training for obstacle-course races with a co-worker. It's like a playground for adults! I also enjoy weekly hikes with my dog.

I dance, salsa, samba, merengue, bachata...!

I play in the rain.

having kids make you incorporate play in your life because I like for my kids to experience outside life and not become a total electronic junk. We take trips to the park and gym often to play ball, swim, ride back and even jump run.

Have you ever noticed how young children don't care about what they look like while they have fun? They don't care what they look like, where they are, what they're wearing... while they play. My favorite sunmer was one I call, "the summer of humans, robots, and clowns." I was researching in my university's Computer Science department and taking a comedy class, called "Clown." We did not wear red noses all summer- rather- we played. My professor was very adamant about playing. As clowns, we could not pass judgement, and we were technically not intelligent enough to realize that anyone was mean, ugly, greedy, or any other negative quality. We simply played, and reacted in response to the room's energy. There was some structure to the class. I promise :) what I took from it was the value in finding time to play, because playing helps me find my inner, honest joy.

I am a grad student studying industrial design and I love objects that are fun but create a greater impact on the world. I feel like most of my work and interests all revolve around fun and play but I also like to incorporate play into my life by making my classmates take breaks to play games to keep us all energized!

The way I add play to my life is going outdoors with my dogs. They keep me active! Thanks for the chance!

I add play by making time for activities outside of work: reading, photography, cooking

I want to play more with our dogs and enjoy fall! I need to get outdoors and away from the computer more!

My husband and I use to go up to the boys and girls club 2-3 times a week and he would play basketball with everyone and I would walk the track and do yoga. When our son was born it made it difficult for me to get out but my husband still goes up there 1-2 times a week and plays and helps keep the park up. It's starting to get cold now that our son is getting big enough to go out and play too but once spring comes around, I can't wait to get us all back out there!

I add imaginary play with my son, last night he brought out a chalk board, we ran out of chalk, so I asked him to use his imaginary chalk board. with that he drew animals and asked me to guest what he drew. I responded with a few animals in mind, and ask if he would describe what they look like, their environment and their special abilities. It was the most fun we had had in a while. Using our minds and thoughts.

I ride horses, the exhilaration of riding is the most fun I have athletically. And I own a Lab... enough said!

I recently rescued a Chihuahua/ Jack Russell mix and he's taught me a lot about play. In fact, before he came into my life I can't recall the last time I had actually played. We play from the moment I open my eyes, whether I'm in the mood or not. It only takes a moment and it helps me start every day with a smile.

I add play by following my passions and training for Ninja Warrior.

I would use it to soccer with my friends and family plus take it on trips to help give us an energy effecting way to have light at nightsexorcism lot while camping.

What a fabulous startup! I add play everywhere and every way that I can in the day from playing super smash brothers with my teens to telling stories based on objects we see in the room. I like to hop, skip and jump on my way to the store and color every chance I get. Play is what keeps us connected to the child within and stimulates our creative mind.

I get outside a lot more than I used to.

I add Play to my life with my Grandchildren. Their boundless energy is contagious and welcome!

I only have my dog, so we try to play as much as possible. She's still a puppy, so she needs lots of exercise. We go for long walks around our neighborhood, play fetch in the backyard, and play with other dogs at the dog park. Having a dog has brought so much joy to my life - as well as activity!

Because PLAY is laughter and smiles, I will add my pets to this along with my children and grandchild. We all love to PLAY!

This is beyond cool!! Kudos to Jessica & Levo!!
I PLAY by fishin' with my boys and grillin' up our fresh catch! :D

My 5 month old son and I have dance breaks throughout the day. He thinks its hilarious and i get some exercise and stress relief!

I try to take a few minutes every day to shoot hoops on my lunch break or hit the gym. It helps me from crashing late in the day, getting the itis and being grumpy towards others. I think that's how play is helping me help mankind, but ultimately being nicer towards others. :-)

Hiking, biking, chasing my maniac escape artist cat around, and and dancing like a mad woman when no one else is around. I like to be silly from time to time- it keeps me young!

I always feel guilty when fall comes around, less daylight is abound, and more energy is racked up with lights (versus reading until evening with the sun). I would love to be encouraged to jump rope for half an hour to feel less guilty about staying up with a great book! Two types of play for me.

I play by hitting the park and smacking around softballs with family, hitting Pismo Beach dunes on ATVs, jetskiing when I get a chance. I'm going to get back into scuba diving when I have a bit more free time on weekends. Nothing compares to being "under the sea" to quote a popular Disney phrase. I pretty much like to play at anything that gets my heart racing and/or adrenaline pumping. If you aren't playing, you're just growing old for no reason.

Raised in a German family in a small farming community, I was taught a strong work ethic. As a child I told myself that when I grew up I would play. After putting myself through college I did just that. First teaching physical education, then coaching gymnastics, working in a fitness center and currently teaching preschool and doing life and wellness coaching. I've been fortunate to turn my work into play. While working in a corporate fitness center, I tried to convince them to generate electricity for the building from the exercise equipment. Apparently management wasn't ready for that idea and I am delighted that Jessica has created these energy producing products. I now live in a state that is very interested in getting off the fossil fuel grid. I'd love to help make this happen, perhaps via school children or young adults using Jessica's sports products.

I add play to my life when I go outside and begging for money every day so when I see people who help me out with $ I dance for them.

I play games with my dog, Sophie; I love to play board games & cards with friends - go bowling and play classic "yard" games with family (corn hole, badminton, volleyball, etc)

Yoga and running are my go-to daily releases. Adding intervals to my runs every few days adds a great aspect of fun. Picking a challenging yoga "pose of the month" and trying to conquer it spices up time on my mat. After that, who can resist playing Just Dance Wii while doing dishes and folding laundry!

I'm a waitress, and at work, I catch myself spinning my tray around when there's nothing on it. At home, my boyfriend and I play video games often, which is fun and a great thing to do together imo.

I play by attending Camp Gladiator (outdoor fitness camp) 5 times per week. It is my release and I have so much fun. I also play by laughing with my husband and finding interesting YouTube videos that we both enjoy. And best of all, I have 6-year-old twin nephews so I take them to the park and run around and play with them.

Adding play to our lives is so important and helps connect humans from all corners of life! I love to watch sports on TV with friends and strangers who are rooting for the same team. There's a definite sense of unity there.

Kickball! Also, some occasional wrestling (yes, I actually mean wrestling) with friends, gets the blood pumping!

At my small law firm I sit at my desk a lot. I recently upped my play quotient by moving my office to the small town where I live, reducing my 45 minute commute to 5 minutes. I use all this extra time to walk around town getting to know fellow merchants, and dancing, hiking, camping and kayaking with my kids. Spending this weekend camping at an outdoor music festival that supports sustainability and alternative energy. All food service packaging is required to be compostable! It is held twice a year and would be a great place for you to showcase your products!

I add play to my day by keeping a positive attitude and acting like Snow White, always whistle while you work. The day goes faster and common activities are more fun.

I jump rope while watching tv!

I add play by traveling, working out, and branching with my girlfriends.

I have a two year old and an extremely immature husband, lol, so every day at our house is play-time!! We are always dancing around the living-room or on the floor building leggo castles, etc. My son doesn't have a brother or a sister yet so we are his playmates and that's an important job!! We take it very seriously, lol!! Not a day goes by that we aren't giggling and chasing each other and just having fun! I really love my life : )!!!

My toddler loves to "shake it off," so we have great dance parties. He also likes Mommy to play on the playground equipment with him.

Impromptu dance parties while cleaning the house!

I break into song when I'm with friends and family. I intentionally pronounce words slightly wrong.

I add PLAY to my life by injecting humor into the work day. It demonstrates to my team that they can be professional and relatable.

By going rockclimbing regularly

When I run I enjoy stopping along the way to take photos of nature or sight seeing if I am in a new place which I love to document and share.

I love being with my Grandchildren and playing with them. They always make me feel younger.

I love to dance with my little girl.

I add play to my life by going to the gym on the weekend when I get the chance. And as someone who aspires to be in the sports media industry, I often go to and watch sports events on TV and in person. I also love to play music when I'm doing homework, cooking, or cleaning to motivate me more.

I work at an office, so I'm sitting down most of the time, but when I have the chance to get up, I make it worth it! I will literally lunge down the stairs. It's a fun way to add a giggle to your day while getting legitimate exercise- hey, whatever works!

I do Anat Baniel Method lessons with my patients, and with our pets, and when I'm on my walks I pick up beautiful leaves and make little art installations on retaining walls and fences.

I like to make people laugh and smile so I'm always doing goofy things ..facial expressions..dancing around. singing..using different languages or different dialects..im told at work that my customers love me for it!!!

I am a 37yo child. Big steep grassy hill? I'll run to the top to roll down. Tall tree? I'm climbing it! Working out is, well, work. Play enables me to nurture my inner child while my adult shell benefits from the exercise that playtime brings. Playing is fun!

When I do have free time to play I practice Karate!

I've played adult kickball for 3 years. I love it. I still jump on my bed. And nothing stops my kids and I from hitting the track and dusting each other. :)

I always try to take the path less traveled (literally) or traveling to new places because you never know what you might discover or who you might meet. I regularly find play in running, dancing, chasing my goddaughter, hiking, rock climbing, busting out my old soccer ball, or simply going for a walk. This PLAY brings joy, laughter, and fun!

I like to "GO" be it 4 WHEELIN for 3 or more days in my JEEP ZJ - GRAND CHEROKEE or hiking the high desert with my GREAT DANE & Catahoula pup... Oh & my wife & son...M... (EVIL ZJ)

Without the ability to play, to understand we can fall over and laugh and that the wind on your face and mud under your fingernails is fun, we are not human. Without play society does not progress because we do not learn from failure, from the falling down and brushing ourselves off and trying again. I train and play everyday because I spend so much time in front of a computer that I have to remind myself I am not a machine too. I'd love to see this technology adapted for rowing and kyaking - the wheels on a rowing seat for instance could generate the energy needed for cycle lights to get to the club for training. The skipping rope would be brilliant in a gym, so that you could cycle home with charged lights. It's such a brilliantly simple idea!

My grandchildren keep me active from finding frogs to playing at the park.

My husband and I try to play pool in our apartment complex a couple of times a week and go for runs together. My friends and I also plan board game nights and fun events for birthdays (like going to a trampoline place or the batting cages).

I work in third world countries where I do not have a reliable supply of electricity. I would love this.

I relish in attending to my trees. On those days you just want to stay indoors the flowers and trees I've planted make me want to go outside and play.

What an amazing and useful invention! I try to take time every day to play with my dogs because it is fun and relaxing and gives me joy. If she could make an energy generating dog ball or toy, that would be great, too.

I try to make time to play in everything I do as much as possible

I add play to my life by exercising and using my fitbit community to motive me to do better.

I have an active toddler daughter and I get to play with her all day long. She is teaching me about keeping a sense of wonder and feeling joy.

I try to approach problems with a playful outlook. I feel that helps coming up with creative solutions & it's the best when work feels like play!

I have two little girls, ages 2 and 4, so I don't have to try too hard to infuse play into my life. Every moment with them is playful.

With two girls and two boys,
we have loads of toys,
and most days are spent at the park!
We like messing around,
acting like clowns,
and board games come out when its dark!
But when they're in bed,
the play doesn't stop,
me and their dad like Mass Effect!
Xbox or PS,
Forget picking up the kids mess,
gaming cheers me up when I feel wrecked!
Its my relax time,
its all mine mine mine!
Like a kid I still like to play!
I know I'm not alone,
just 'cos we're fully grown,
I know that my hubby feels the same! ;-)

I play by enjoying outdoor excursions, walks and hikes with friends. I also love to run every week and play ultimate frisbee in a league!

hiking in the mountains of east ky. its a gorgeous place to live .. especially this time of year.. go to a mountain top and just look down at the sloping hills and tons of fall colors.

I add play when I hang out with my dogs. We have dance parties, go for rides and we run around playing in the back yard.

I add play with games with my grandkids. I'm handicapped in awheelchair and can't get out andplay but we do board games and other fun things.

A motto I always keep in mind is if you're not playing, you're not living. I add play into my daily routine by dancing, running, and saying yes to new adventures and opportunities.

I fit running into my daily life & I pick the wildflowers, then I play by making faces out of the flowers I pick. You can see them on Instagram with the hashtag #ALFaceTheFoliage. It makes the mundane, repetition of moving my legs a lot more fun!

I add play to my days in a couple of ways (Wow, that rhymed!). My exercise play is when I get outside with our three wieners and one chihuahua (Norman Winthrop, Matilda Mae, Arthur Milton, and Maximillion) to play ball and chase. Our dogs are our kids so their play time is really important if we have ANY expectation of them listening to us in the house. LOL! My other play is a passion for making people laugh, and seizing every opportunity myself to laugh as much as possible. Getting the chance to make someone laugh is incredibly recreational for me, and ends up bringing a little play into someone else's life at the same time.

Play can be an exercise class, goofing around on a playground, painting, singing, dancing, cooking or anything that is something out of the ordinary or feels fun!

To be human is to play, it's an intrinsic natural ability that we have to communicate our feelings and need for movement while stimulating the brain. Play to me is our "home famous" break dancing and disco nights with my children. Having an awesome time with MOVEMENT. We will crank up the music, explore and express ourselves while taking it to the FUN limits of dance. From the WOP, to the 50's mashed potato, african dancing, the electric slide, capoeira, MC Hammer TIME and beyond. We are moving, vibrant, laughing, chasing one another, the house is aglow and full of kinetic energy, because after we are done dancing, there is an excitement, a zest, an itch to do more! TO share moments of joy, gut busting laughter, to challenge and battle each other and simply to LOVE. To me play is akin to the purest human emotion LOVE. Take some time out, away from the computers, our beloved Droids and iPhones, step out of the office and play. Whatever that is, whoever you are. The world needs your playtime...to be awesome!

Aside from dancing, we run, chase, I have impromptu improv hilarious sessions with my sister-girls and besties and we share the most precious, sacred energy of fun in our play. Even as early 30's somethings, I see a value in playing that I'll never forget. My mother made it an important part of our lives and that I will cherish forever. I'll be the old woman in her late 90's still "playing..." Guinness World Book of Records...I'm coming!

PLAY is the essence of learning, living, loving. Humans (and creatures) play when they are born; babies play, youths play, adults play. That is how we learn life lessons and how to interact with each other. That is how we survive socially. That is how we enrich our legacy in this world.

My son and I enjoy PLAY by kicking a soccer ball outside and taking adventurous walks to our mailbox.

In my house there's always some type of game going, between my 7 year old boy, our dog and myself, we spend a lot of time playing, either outdoors or indoors, some type of ball game, mind game, running, walking, etc. Playing games, not only keep us busy and entertained but happy!

I take my son to the park to play tennis and soccer every week. And I myself play tennis so it's all about play for me!

I recently bought a paddle board and am enjoying life in Northwest Florida more than ever!!

I add PLAY to my life by saying yes to every opportunity to move-- dancing after dinner, early-morning runs or a late-night game of basketball under the lights.

My son and I wash my car with water guns! It's fantastically fun and shows him that chores don't need to be boring.

Play is how I get through my days. Turn mundane chores into fun activities - essential and energizing.
