Recreation- Need and importance in modern society
Author(s): Aafid Gulam
Recreation is an activity of body and mind which gives relief from tension and fatigue. When we continue doing a work or performing an activity regularly and continuously for some hours, it gives us physical and mental fatigue and strain. Recreational activity relieves us of the feeling of fatigue, restores our energy and promotes a sense of joy. Without recreation, life would be dull and miserable. Leisure is that time which man has acquired for himself, in which he has the freedom to do as he pleases. One must be educated to use his leisure in worthy pursuits. Recreation means leisure activities chosen by an individual for the purpose of improving his life and living. These activities are of a constructive nature. They are not time-consuming but time-using. They are healthy-physically, mentally and socially.
