Some people prefer to spend their free time outdoors. Other people prefer to spend their leisure time indoors. Which one do you prefer?
In my opinion, I think it is better to spend my free time outdoors than in a closed place. Since I am an active person who has always enjoyed making sports or hanging out with friends in parks, I will always prefer to do activities outside my house, if the weather helps of course. To be in an open air place helps me to relax after a hard day or week, to clarify my head and recover, something I cannot do being locked in my four walls. And in such places I am able to do those things I enjoy the most, like to grill with my friends while we drink a couple of beers on a sunny day. Could you imagine something more relaxing than this? I think it is way to better than going to a spa!
And like I said, I use to practice a lot of sports in my free time. Playing soccer, basketball or jogging have been always one of my favorite hobbies, and for, me, these activities are more enjoyable if I am able to do them in a place where I can breathe some fresh air while I am moving my body. So, it amuses me, and it is good for my health to catch some sun and air.
However, I am not saying that I do not like using the time to do some indoor activities. I enjoy doing things like going to the movies, to a mall, to a bar. If I denied it, I would be lying. But these tend to be second hand options, things I do when the weather is not being so nice or I have no one to go outside with me. I spend a lot of time during my day in indoor places (my room, the library, the classrooms, etc.), so, if I have the most little opportunity to escape from this environment, I take it.
