- What is the leisure time and how much do you have?.
- How do you spend your leisure time?.
- What changes will there be in leisure activities in the future?.
Not only is to work in the life and the leisure time is very necessary for to be happier. Each one spends his leisure time in different ways depending of what each one likes to do more. But, in regard to the question as to whether the good use of leisure time is the key to man´s future I have to say that I totally agree with this statement because from my point of view I think that we can take advantage the leisure time doing something that we like to do while this activity gives us a benefit. I cannot understand the people for instance that stay almost all day sitting on the sofa watching TV or they are in the bar drinking alcohol and as well as they are damaging their body and it is a waste of money and time.
For me the meaning of leisure time is, the time which we have when we have finished our obligations such as to work in our job, to do the housework or simply to take the dogs for a walk. In my case, I arrive to my home once I leave of my work around five o´clock on week days and I often have the weekends free if I am not on duty. I am conscious that I have much leisure time compared with other people and for me it is not sufficient time because I do a lot of activities which I am going to relate in the following paragraph.
Nowadays I spend my leisure time especially studying English and making essays like this to wait the reply of my friend Kitos and hoping that he says me that the essay is quite good. As well as I like running very much and I run around fifteen kilometers six days at week and I go to the gym three or four days at week, where I do swimming, exercises with the machines, etc. Also I have a daughter, she is fourteen years old, almost fifteen, and I help her with her studies when we are in home.
Finally, in regard to the last question I think that in the future, the people spend most of their leisure time in Internet or playing with video games and they will not be much time with the family or reading a good book.
To sum up, each one spend the leisure time doing they want to do, but there are a lot of activities which we can do and furthermore they will get benefits. The time is like gold and we should not to waste it.
