Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by enjoying it well. Then youth will be delightful, old age will bring few regrets and life will become a beautiful success
Louisa May Alcott
July 6th - All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
Live a life that is well balanced; don’t do things in excess.
My life seems to be a little out of balance these days. I’m not doing much work at all. And I’m feeling very lazy. But I think we need both in our lives to make life feel worthwhile.
Happiness is usually the result of having a meaningful life, not what makes life worth living in itself. People’s health and well being are important if they are able to engage in activities that are meaningful and pleasurable and that health is a balance of work, play and leisure.
Playfulness enables adults to incorporate play in both work and leisure activities. If someone fails to gain meaning or pleasure in their work, they may become burnt out or their performance my be affected. It’s finding the balance that is important.
One normally has to work for a living. To live a full life , one also needs pleasure and leisure. Leisure time is important because it gives us the opportunity to discover ourselves and grow. Taking time off to indulge in what makes us a better person.
We should all know the importance of the three R’s .relaxation, recreation and rest. They help us have positive attitude to life and make us look at situations in a new way.But I also think you’ve also got to keep moving if you want a balanced life.
Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.
