    Essay about leisure time

    We often hear about the lack of time for spend in extra activities in our daily life. A great majority of people are commonly stuck in their offices every day, and are hardly to convince in order to change their inappropriate habits after work. It is a fact that, we spend most of our time at work, however, it is of crucial importance, the time management, especially, when it comes to leisure time. In this essay I will discuss two approaches that should be taken in consideration.

    The first option to be considered is learning. We all know, how tough can be learn a new language, it requires a lot of dedication and patience. However, internet is an invaluable tool and essential for getting satisfactory results on learning in a short period of time. There is a variety of websites with valuable and extended educational resources, such as YouTube or forum communities. Acquiring a new language is an open door for future career opportunities, or even just travelling around the world and knowing people from other countries.

    A second alternative would be the practise of physical activities. We all know the beneficial effects of practising any sports on health. Set a daily workout routine, it would be also a good task in order to reduce stress from work. For instance, a recent research from Antaya University in Canada, says that people who work out and keep in a good shape are more productive and feel more confident towards daily challenges at workplace.

    Re: Essay about leisure time

    Are you a native speaker of Russian from Spain?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: Essay about leisure time

    Try:

    We often hear about the lack of leisure time.

    OR

    We often hear about the lack of time to do things outside of work.

    Where and from whom do we hear about that?

    Re: Essay about leisure time

    It's simply not true that we spend most of our time at work. Perhaps you mean we spend most of our waking hours at work. That's only true if you work 80 hours a week.

    Perhaps:

    It's hard to get people to change their inappropriate habits.

    Lots of things are hard to do. Whether it's worth it to try to do them is another matter.

    Re: Essay about leisure time

    Is it your contention that time imanagement is of crucial importance when it comes to leisure time? Is that because we have so little of it?

    We all know how hard it can be to learn a new language.
