Leisure and Entertainment

  • Since we can’t go on working all the time, we should have leisure activities such as reading, practicing sport and doing artistic activities. In fact, having different pass time activities is necessary for a good mental and physical health. But some free time activities such as watching TV or listening to music may be just as bad as no activity.

  • Tasks like: Painting, drawing, writing, reading and making things and art craft are the real recreational activities that make us renew and refresh our energy.

  • Watching TV shouldn’t be called a leisure activity, I think it is not an activity, but rather an inactivity: you’re laying down relaxing and accepting tons of information and images and this can run for hours.

  • Adjective related to Leisure
