“What if I was to tell you that a game of peek-a-boo could change the world?” asks seven-year-old Molly Wright, one of the youngest-ever TED speakers. Breaking down the research-backed ways parents and caregivers can support children’s healthy brain development, Wright highlights the benefits of play on lifelong learning, behavior and well-being, sharing effective strategies to help all kids thrive by the age of five. She’s joined onstage by one-year-old Ari and his dad, Amarjot, who help illustrate her big ideas about brain science.
This year, ask yourself, “What if it were easy?” What would you do to make your dreams come true without the hustle-and-grind culture? What if life was #fun, fulfilling, and work was accomplished through #flow and was giving you energy instead of draining it?

As adults, we often get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life. We have bills to pay, jobs to go to, and responsibilities to take care of. With so much to do, it can be easy to forget the importance of play.
But play is not just for kids – it is essential for adults as well. In fact, play can benefit us in many ways, including physically, mentally, and emotionally.
While some stress is unavoidable, often it is self-inflicted. Are there areas of your life or work that you could take a more playful approach?
We always ask kids WHAT they want to be when they grow up, and I can’t think of a worse question… Most of the time, I believe adults ask kids what they want to be when they grow up because the adults are still looking for good answers to that question!
