Work and recreation are closely related to each other. A proverb says: All work, no play, Jack becomes a dull boy. Usually, after, several hours of attentive study, students like to have a football game to relax their nerves. Workers, too, find it very satisfying to sit in front of a TV set for an hour or two when they come back from a day’s tiring work. Besides, recreation serves as a pleasing way for the retired people to pass their excessive time. And after your full relaxation, you will find yourself energetic again and go to work vigorously.
As for recreation in my spare time, there are two kinds mainly: physical and intellectual activities. The former is walking after meals or jogging in the early morning, which helps me healthy and energetic in the day. The latter is playing chess or reading historical novels that can enhance my thought and memory and provide temporary escape from one’s troubles.
In my opinion, recreation plays a positive role in our life. And what is important is that there should be a balance between work and recreation. Any extremity will bring harm to our life.
