I'm happy to share info about a Kickstarter* project that I'm supporting whole heartedly. "SERIOUSLY! The future depends on play" is an hour long creative documentary by Gwen Gordon that shines a bright light on the vital importance of play to our health, happiness, and the future of life itself! It provides inspiring and irrefutable evidence of play's vital importance in every part of our lives. It shares powerful stories of play healing trauma, reducing crime, resolving conflicts, finding ingenious solutions to seemingly intractable problems, and making life worth living (to name just a few.) Watch the movie trailer here.

Even short periods of exercise can boost the metabolism and support heart and brain health.  If you have limited mobility then you can modify and follow along while sitting in an armless chair. (This episode is a bit longer than the usual 5 minutes because it includes an encore "performance" for those who want to go through the routine a 2nd time.)
