101: How to Unlock Your Inner Child Through Play with Kara Latta

July is here and that means it is time to have some fun. Every July we break out of our routines, let go, and focus on play. This year we have a special guest to join us and guide us as we play. 

Kara Latta is the Chief Fun Officer at The Playful Warrior and today we chat about the positive impact that play has on our mental and physical health. We’ll learn about the neuroscience behind incorporating play into our daily routine and you’ll discover how you can incorporate fun into your life each day. 

Make sure to stick around until the end of the episode to hear how you can join all of us at Lindywell for a play-filled workshop.
