Let's talk about leisure time
It goes without saying that every person needs entertainment and enjoyment, free time and rest after hard work. All our activities can be divided into physical, intellectual and mental activities. Scientists prove that we can benefit from combining activities of different kinds as much as from having a rest.
The author of an article in one Polish newspaper has counted 1019 personal interests and ways to spend one's free time. The most popular hobbies are collecting view cards, coins, stamps, badges and books. Hobbies differ like tastes. They are divided into 4 large classes: doing things, making things, collecting things and learning things. Doing things, for example, include a wide variety of activities from gardening to travelling. Making things includes painting, drawing, designing costumes, handicraft, composing music.
I studied hard at school to achieve high results and get profound knowledge. I think that would have been impossible without activities I do in my free time.
If you ask me how I usually spend my leisure time, I can say that I play volleyball, play the guitar, read for pleasure, listen to music or spend time with my best friend.
I think I'm a sporty girl. It goes without saying that sport is very important for every person. Playing volleyball helps me to keep my body in a good shape, makes me more organized and self-disciplined. Every Thursday I have volleyball classes. They help to create a healthy body for a healthy rhind and give possibilities to communicate with my teammates.
I'm keen on reading. My parents taught me to read at a very early age. Books stir my imagination, expand the boundaries of the world I live in. They teach me to live, help to form moral values, entertain and give pleasure. I like adventure stories in which brave and clever people are shown, I'm interested in reading detective stories which show crime, criminals and clever detectives. I like psychological dramas which show how people behave in different situations.
I'm fond of listening to music. My favourite bands as 'Three Days Grace' and 'Nightwish'. Music helps me to remove from tiredness and find new strength. This year I have started taking guitar classes. Every Tuesday and Thursday I go to my teacher who helps me to learn the magic of the music world. I find these lessons interesting and exciting. They get me energy and optimism. Although my fingers keep aching, I feel proud when I learn new things. I hope I will be able to play the guitar well in some time.
In my free time I try to read English books in the original. It increases my vocabulary. I'm fond of watching American films. It helps me to learn pronunciation and social English better.
I like to spend some of my free time with my best friend. We watch movies, listen to music or go for a walk together.
To sum up I would like to say that without leisure activities life becomes dull and boring, and people become frustrated.
