One technique for turning work into play is to do the same action
Yesterday when I was swimming it occurred to me that instead of
treating swimming like work, why not treat it like play. So I
started acting a little crazy. Instead of swimming straight I
zig-zagged, then I started spinning like a dolphin, then I
touched the floor of the pool.
The space of things that can be done in a pool is so large it's
amazing that I had trapped myself into a monotonous stroke all
And as I did this it turned from work into play and I had to drag
myself out of the pool when I was done with my workout.
Why is exercise called "working" out. Why not call it playing
out? Why workout when you can playout?
