Take Time for Leisure Activities
Leisure time is a brake from routine. Leisure activities are a temporary escape from responsibility and mundane drudgery. A Leisure release is absolutely necessary for good health, personal wellbeing and healthy relationships. Leisure is a safeguard against fatigue, stress, depression and death.
Some work can also be satisfying and relaxing, but is your are working long hours, 5 to 6 days a week at the same task, you need to build in periodic leisure time for relief and renewal.
During difficult economic times it is easy to fall prey to being a workaholic out of fear of losing our jobs and meeting our financial obligations, but this is self-defeating. You can operate a peak proficiency for short periods of time, but if you endeavor to continue this effort for an extended period of time, with no light at the end of the tunnel, you risk your perceived proficiency, health and personal wellbeing. There is an old question which asks “What good is it to gain the whole world, only to lose you life?” This is a question we should all constantly ask ourselves.
We must maintain balance in our lives to ensure our wellbeing and truly experience the joy of living. A balanced life includes a personally accepted level of work, leisure and social time and activities.
Take some deserved leisure time and enjoy life.
