The average adult laughs 15 times each day. The average child laughs over 400 times each day. Who will ruin it for them as they get older? We will. We say things like, “careful, someone could lose an eye!” Really? How many eight-year old pirates have you seen running around? Kids know how to have fun. They take recess breaks every day. We take coffee breaks, loading up on sugar and caffeine, and then percolate in our cubicles. Research proves that taking a brief recess break enables us to reduce stress, increasing our ability to create, and boosts productivity.
