    Leisure is personal time during which you are free from obligations. This freedom from any "must do" activity results in a choice-a personal decision about how to spend your time.

    Leisure reinforces emotional wellbeing. The idea is to fill your free time doing something you like-not only recreation, but activities such as reading, spending time with friends, writing letters, playing a musical instrument or simply spending time alone.

    The options are limitless. What all leisure choices have in common is an opportunity to enhance the value of being a human being through personal choice and decision making.
