Didn’t leave home today. It was too peopley out there.
I slept in today. Leslie and I had brunch plans that were cancelled yesterday, and we realized that we didn’t have to anything today. Of course, laundry and house cleaning are always at the top of the list, but other than that….we had a day of leisure pleasantly scheduled.
Leisure is defined as free time when one is not working or attending to other duties, and relaxation or activities engaged in during such time. A September 2013 Harris Interactive poll asked 2,577 American adults, “Thinking of the time when you are not working or in school, what would you say your two or three favorite leisure time activities are?” If we exclude reading, although today much of it takes place on a tablet screen, four of the most popular five leisure activities for both Millennials and Gen X take place on a screen: (1) watching TV; (2) computer/internet; (3) watching/going to the movies; and (4) playing video games and computer/internet games. This truly shows how our leisure activities have become heavily screen-based. It is also interesting that food, both cooking and dining at restaurants, ranks higher with Millennials than with Gen X.
