Families today are bombarded by potentially stress-provoking situations. Parents may juggle jobs, chores, child-care, care of older parents and much more, so it's not surprising that many people don't make time for leisure. Yet even a little leisure time can be one of the most healing remedies for emotionally drained families.
Leisure is personal time during which you are free from obligations. This freedom from any "must do" activity results in a choice-a personal decision about how to spend your time.
Leisure reinforces emotional well-being. The idea is to fill your free time doing something you like-not only recreation, but activities such as reading, spending time with friends, writing letters, playing a musical instrument or simply spending time alone.
The options are limitless. What all leisure choices have in common is an opportunity to enhance the value of being a human being through personal choice and decision making.
