Leisure is a time free from employment, when you are not in a hurry.The dictionary definition of leisure is "vacant time." During homeschooling, we had daily rest and do-nothing time where we could all slow down, calm racing thoughts, and allow our minds and bodies to rest.
Leisure is an important time to rest and get your thoughts in order: consider what you need to do and the things you would like to accomplish. "Take your leisure" means to take your time."
Sometimes, a few moments of leisure can help you get energy, ideas and motivation.
Leisure can foster feelings of contentment in life and in the home.
If you are at home, keeping house and taking care of others, please do not neglect daily lesure time for both yourself and your family, for this is something that is reviving.
Over the years, i have thought about this, and noticed when I say "I do not need to stop for tea today. I am too busy and accomplishing a lot and do not want to pause," there is a feeling of being hurried, and not a sense of peace.
