Practical and heart-felt (Kyle Wood- Australia) 

A fantastic book that attempts to define play and why it’s so important to our mental health. Full of great stories, expertise, and practical exercises. Recommended for those who want to be more mindful but don’t resonate with things like meditation or yoga. Or people like teachers and presenters who regularly have to work with groups of people who perhaps don’t want to be there.

great read for anyone needing a reality check about ‘all work’ (Sandra King- Australia)

This book was fantastic and so easy to read. It was funny, real, insightful, and made me sit back and reflect on the way I live. I have already recommended this book to many people including lots of my teaching colleagues.

My story

My story is not dissimilar to many. It took me hitting rock bottom to realise that what I thought was a pursuit of happiness was actually contributing to a lack of life satisfaction.

I was always on the chase. Never happy with being satisfied with living in the moment. My eye was constantly on the next big achievement. And I can now say that I was selfish, arrogant, a narcissist and quite frankly a fraud.

My eye was off the ball and before I knew it – I had sunk into a depression that was triggered by my divorce.

It took this crisis to identify the importance of living in the moment and being present and grateful. But how to achieve this?

 As a former teacher I reflected on the happiness children seem to experience through play. This insight alone paved the way for my own happiness and was the genesis of Jugar Life – which in essence means to play. 

Encouraging adults to live the Jugar Life with me – and adopt it into their daily routine to ultimately experience greater moments of happiness – is now my mission in life.
