Let’s Play!

Did you know that playing together with a stranger will increase your empathy for that person?

Being around strangers creates stress and decreases empathy (tested by plunging one’s hand into a bucket of ice water – ouch!).  But playing just 15 minutes of a cooperative game with that same stranger results in empathy and stress levels similar to when you are with your closest friends!  Amazing!  Now extend that to a Corps Fitness class…  Maybe you walk in the door as a newbie, knowing absolutely nobody (or maybe only your friend who brought you in).  Spend an entire HOUR “playing cooperatively” with them via team runs, team exercises, and general good old CF-style teamwork!  All of the sudden you’re leaving Bldg 7 feeling like you own the world!

Never stop playing, my friends!
