most of us are inclined to feel tha t it is difficult to spend our leisur e properly . when we have holidays , we usually feel bored and do not k now what to do . many people just sit in a sofa watching tv, while many othe r people stay in bed to venture their dr eamland .
actually , having this feeling is quite natural since , in our daily life, we do things mor e or less in accordance with an unwrit ten daily routine in our mind . for instance, a student goes to school in the morning , takes lunch at noon , goes home in the evening and does homework at night ; while a clerk gets to the office in the morning , takes tea in the afternoon , goes back home in the evening and r eads newspaper at night .
gradually and accordingly we get used to the routine in our mind . and once we have holidays , we need not car ry out this routine . so we a re at a complete loss .
how to spend our leis ure ? her e a re some helpful s uggestions but the su bject ma tter is to have recreation !
if you a re an active person , you can go on a picnic, or play some spor ts games . the fr es h air and the fascina ting scenery in the count ryside may r ef resh you and the amusing games may make you happier .
for those who a re not so active and like to stay at home , they may listen to light music or read novels . indoor games such as ches s , cards , t able tennis and hobbies such as gardening and keeping pets ar e also enjoyable .
in this way , we will feel relaxed , happier and more energetic . when holidays a re over and we begin to work again, we can do much bet ter with a light heart .
