    3. LEISURE IS OUR ATTITUDE TOWARDS FREE TIME, OUR DESIRE TO USE FREE TIME FOR PERSONAL SATISFACTION. 1. Leisure is not free time: it is how we choose to spend our free time. 2. Definition of free time: time away from work, commitments, obligations, sleep. It is time we devote to our personal satisfaction. 3. Leisure is activity chosen in relative freedom from its qualities of satisfaction. 4. Leisure is derived from the Latin word “licere”, meaning to be free. The Greeks used the term “schole” to define leisure. 5. To Greeks, leisure was a lifestyle attitude. 6. To Aristotle, the Greek philosopher, leisure was the state of existence in which everything was done for its own sake, as an end in itself.

    4. LEISURE IS LOOKED AT AS: A. TIME: A portion of our lives when we have greater freedom to do what we want. B. ACTIVITY: Occupations in which people participate of their own free will for rest, amusement, knowledge, and exercise. C. STATE OF MIND: A state of unhurried, tranquil, contemplative existence

    5. TIME ANALYSIS CATEGORY ACTUAL TIME 1. SLEEPING __________ hours 2. EATING __________ hours 3. SCHOOL CLASSES __________ hours 4. STUDYING __________ hours 5.

FREE TIME/DAY __________ total hrs

    6. Prominence of Leisure in Society Leisure is the No. 1 block of time in a lifetime. One of the most striking set of statistics on the prominence of leisure in society shows the years spent in various life activities. (Weiskopf) Years Spent in Various Life Activities Number of Years Life Activities 27 Leisure time, including childhood play 24 Sleep 7.33 Work 4.33 Formal Education 2.33 Eating 5 Miscellaneous 70 years Assuming a 70-year life span, leisure time (27 years) is almost four times greater than work time (7.33 years). This data further emphasizes the absurdity of education focusing almost exclusively on preparation for work while almost totally ignoring preparation for leisure.

    13. Church Attendance Boosts Immunity Going to church may be good for the body as well as the soul. In a study of 1700 older Americans, researchers at Duke University Medical Center found that those who attended religious services had stronger immune responses. About 60% of the men and women surveyed attended religious services at least once a week. Blood tests showed that regular attendees were less likely to have high levels of an immune-system protein involved in age-related diseases. (Parade, Feb 8, 1998, p. 7)

    14. Earlier studies found a correlation between religious observation and good physical health, but it wasn’t clear if healthy individuals simply get to church regularly or if church attendance itself delays a decline in physical well-being (Parade, Feb 8, 1998, p. 7)
