The importance of playtime (piste time)
In recent years there have been major developments in the area of ‘play’. A lack of playtime is now seen as a major health obstacle. Doing things, just because they’re fun, not because they’ll help achieve a goal, is vital to human development.
According to research, playtime can relieve stress, boost creativity, improve brain function, and improve our relationships with other people. It’s accepted by psychologists and researchers as an essential component for childhood development — and a lack of play time is seen as a major health obstacle for poor and inner-city children.
And play isn’t just a human luxury. We’ve all watched dogs play, cats play, monkeys play, even Dolphins. We don’t have to be taught how to play. We just know. For evolutionary reason it exists. Which is why psychologist now argue that by abandoning play, we’re abandoning an important part of ourselves.
Lets’ bring this back to skiing, because if your playtime is piste-time then we need to get practical. How can you fit play–ski in your already overly committed diary? Here’s how we helped our clients make time for playtime.
