Реферат: Leisure time
When we havetime for leisure, we usually need something that can amuse and entertain us.
People who workindoors and spend most of their time sitting and doing sedentary office workcan add physical activity to their lives by doing sports during their leisuretime, such as playing a ball game, going camping, hiking or fishing. On theother hand, people whose jobs involve a lot of physical activity may prefer tospend their free time doing quiet, relaxing activities, such as reading booksor magazines or watching TV. Some people find that collecting stamps,postcards, badges, model cars, planesor ships, bottles, or antiques are relaxing hobbies.
Free time isorganized in many schools and institutions. Schools may offer manyextracurricular activities including hobby groups, sports activities, andchoirs. Other institutions such as retirement homes and hospitals also offeractivities such as clubs and meetings for playing games or simply organizedperiods for conversation.
Most people likesocializing with friends for dinner or a drink after a hard day at work. Formany young people, having a regular night out a week is a normal part of theirfree time, whether it is joining friends for a drink in a pub, dining out in arestaurant, watching a film, playing video games or dancing at a club.
Some people doleisure activities that also have a longer-term goal. In some cases, people doa leisure activity that they hope to turn into a full-time activity (e.g.,volunteer paramedics who hope to eventually become professional paramedics).Many people also study part-time in evening university or college courses, bothfor the love of learning, and to help their career prospects.
