It seems dolphins know how to balance their incredible intelligence with their playfulness. They’re known to create bubble rings that they play with, toss octopus or sand dollars, play tag with seaweed, or even mimic how humans swim. There’s a lot to be admired about their energy and exuberance in play.
Especially in this time where there are so many pressures to perform and be available constantly through electronic devices, it’s important to carve out time for play and joy. When was the last time you felt really alive? When was the last time as a couple you broke out of your routine and did something new, spontaneous, and that involved high energy fun?
Personally, dolphins remind me to pause, dance, and rejoice.
