Leisure means free time away from routine work, which can be spent doing activities of hobbies, which one likes to do like i_leisurereading, hearing music, collecting stamps, gardening. Some misunderstand the meaning of leisure. For them it means whiling away time, roaming and wandering aimlessly, playing pranks etc. Leisure is a must to give a break to a dull routine. It is wrong to use holidays as working days.

People who don’t believe in leisure, suffer from boredom, tension or depression. Leisure doesn’t mean indulging in heavy activities and it also doesn't mean wastage of time.

Those who while away time are abusing leisure. They get into a lethargic mode and find it difficult to get out of it. Those who inculcate hobbies can wisely use their time and ensure their all round development.

By playing sports and doing physical activities we can be physically fit. Leisure activities should not be expensive and time consuming . They should not in any way hamper the peace and harmony of social life.

Leisure gives us the time to introspect and know ourselves. we can meditate and do yoga. Through introspection we will be able to know ourselves better and work towards our personal and spiritual growth. A person who doesn’t enjoy leisure amply supports the maxim – “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!”
