Timetoplay.com Thought of the Day: Work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt, and dance like nobody is watching! – Mark Twain

Work like you don’t need the money, love like you’ve never been hurt, and dance like nobody is watching! – Mark Twain

Hmmm.  What does this say?  Love life.  Love what you do.  Be happy.

Is this easy in today’s society?  Not so much.  Negativity abounds in the news.  Financial pressures keep people tied to jobs they hate.  Obligations keep you prisoner, competing for the little time each day holds.

Reevaluation is key.  It is the goal of www.timetoplay.com to encourage people to find a better way of life.  We all search.  We just need to start somewhere.

Timetoplay.com is looking for contributors and content to help people achieve a quality of life.

So, what to do?  www.timetoplay.com does not expect a miracle.  Start with a “pledge to play” — we ask that you take 10 minutes a day to do something you love.  10 minutes.  Maybe that’s doable.  Is today the day?

It is almost that time again…

It is 4:00 pm- do you know where you are going after work? Come one people we can make it one more hour! Usually this tends to be the longest hour of day but lets all pull together and make the best of it!

I just posted all the Time to Play press releases that have recently been sent out to the media. Our Toys-for-Tots fundraiser is our most important release so far. Every child should be able to open a brand new toy this holiday season. This release was featured on the Madison Square Garden website as well. Please help get the word out. 30% of every “I Helped the Kids Play” t-shirt will go to the NYC Toys-for-Tots Chapter. For more information go to www.timetoplay.com

an apple a day helps you play!

, , , , ,

The major premise behind my website, www.timetoplay.com, is that to enjoy the spare time we all find in a day we need to be health conscious. I try to incorporate as much educational resources for my website visitors so they can understand the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is in order to get the most out of life.

Who has the stamina or is in the mood to enjoy a beautiful, invigorating hike after a Double Quarter Pounder with bacon & cheese with a side of fries and an apple fritter? Personally, a meal like that would keep me weighted down on my couch for a week (not including a trip to the bathroom!).

Isn’t it ironic that apple season falls right before flu season? It is the best time of year on Long Island to go out east and pick bushels of apples to bring home. An apple a day will keep the flu shot away!

I try very hard to keep myself and my family on the path of healthy daily habits. I won’t deny there are many temptations, like the pizza place around the corner from my office. Oh the cheesy, greasy, garlic-y GREATNESS. Every once and awhile I will of course treat myself to a slice for lunch but usually I balance it with an apple. A crunchy, juicy, shiny, tart, beautiful apple!

My point is that we cannot starve ourselves of the little pleasures in life. Whether that be a great slice of pizza or a short walk on the beach when we have a pile of laundry to do. The balance of life always allows some time for the little things we truly enjoy.

You can always take that short walk on the beach with your slice of pizza and kill two birds with one stone 😉

Time to play tip of the day: “If you want your life to be a magnificent story, then begin by realizing that you are the author and everyday you have the opportunity to write a new page!” – Mark Houlahan

Isn’t that the beauty of waking up to a new day, everyday? On Monday you could have spilled coffee on your white shirt driving to work, was late for a conference meeting, got a lashing from your boss, forgot your wallet at home and couldn’t get something for lunch, sat in traffic to come home to a pipe burst. But on Tuesday it is a brand new day to start all over again!

Don’t forget to take time in your day to play,

I WANT MY WEEKENDS BACK!

, , , , ,

I am so tired. And not just today, everyday. I wake up at 5am most mornings in the dark. I try to go to the gym just to give myself that little oompf throughout the day. I come home to shower, get the kids off to school, and then off to the office until at least 6pm (but it is usually later). Typically I work on weekends just to either get a head start on a project or to finish one. I want my weekends back and I want them now.

Back in the day didn’t the Almighty give us a day of rest? For what? So I can make lists of things I need to do on Monday.

Why do the days go so fast? It is already November! I still cannot get over the fact that summer has been over for 3 months. What happened? During the warmer months my husband and I would venture down to our boat as a way to escape and relax. Yet, I was never without my laptop or the blackberry. I cannot neglect my obligations and my responsibilities. But when is it time for me and only me?

Why is it so hard for all of us to step away from work, work, and more work?

Let’s all ban together and take back our weekends!

Worked Hard, Time to Play

, , , , ,

Every day we get up, get dressed, go to work.  We try to do our best.  Always so busy, working, taking care of the kids, going food shopping. . .

But, each week goes so fast — it’s really a blink.

The big question — how to fit it all in?

My goal — to look back on each day and to reflect that I actually had a nice day.  Somehow, to include some type of enjoyment in each day and not just work.  This is something I’m striving for.  My goal.

I invite others to share in my quest — to offer suggestions, to offer guidance.

To embark with me on a quest for quality of life.
