Would you agree that “All work and no play” is detrimental to not only our work, but more importantly to our happiness?
“Work Hard Play Hard “- It’s a bit cliché and we all get the ‘work hard’ part but I think we at PeopleStories have found new and positive twist of the ‘play hard’ part.
Yes, there are fantastic bars in Siem Reap to play hard but the cocktail tastes so much better if you really earned it. We place great value in playing and have ensured that every single member of our family- from the children we help to the volunteers who help us- get a chance to play!
Let me share with you a few stories.
The future is playful
The importance of play and sports cannot be overstated. We will beef up our sports curriculum in the schools including specialised sports for girls. We recently introduced Netball to the students who have never heard of the game. They thoroughly enjoyed it and that is all the validation we need to keep doing what we do.
My Happiness Journey
This blog is the part 3 of my sharing as “Currency of Happiness”, which expresses what happiness means to me, especially when I am in Cambodia.
I don’t believe there is an exact formula to happiness because personal perspective plays a vital role in determining what happiness means to us individually. It is more or less like a currency which works in one country but perhaps not in another. Some currencies are worth a little bit more than others but there is beauty and happiness in every single one.
There you have it, my take on “Currency of Happiness” in Cambodia!
Follow me if you like it. Let me know what your Currency of Happiness is. I’d love to hear from you!
The success of our plan to play, like everything else we do to help these children, lies on the hands of our donors, sponsors and volunteers.
