In the following section I am gointg to present a brief discusssion of leisure and recreation. Traditionally lesisure refers to ‘free or unobligated time that involve no work or any life-sustaining functions (Leitner et al., 2012:3), the time free from occupation, job, or engagement with any kind of work (Brightbill, 1960:3). In other words, freedom from obligation of doing or not doing something is leisure (Hendon, 1981:28). So, leisure denotes a time dimension, and generally that time which is left over after work, sleep and personal and family chores (Boniface et al., 1990:1). Leisure is one’s own subordination.
An abject body does not necessarily need to be a disabled person and thus unable to be accepted as a normal living person. It goes beyond just suffering disability or other visual, physical “damages”. Being an abject body in our society means having a life which is not considered being one. Becoming a subject matter instead of an object or vice versa, just because of the way of life we are
WHY PEOPLE SHOULD READ FOR PLEASURE The Declaration of Human Rights has stated that all human beings reserve the right to rest and leisure. They—human beings—have the rights to stop worrying about bills, heartbreaks, chores, and just be happy and relaxed. However, they tend to abandon this longing and continue on their journey of stressful life due to the fact that they lack money, job, good marks, or other stuff they consider essential to their lives. They do not seem to comprehend the significance of happiness when they could have spent those valuable seconds to make money or any other thing they think worth doing. This is owing to the fact that they do not seem to know that bliss and satisfaction can be found in the simplest of things that don’t require any physical effort—reading, for instance.
Although existential therapy highlights the main concerns an individual would face in life, the therapy lacks in structure or directions. It does not indicate any specific steps a therapist should use during the intervention period. It relies solely on therapist and client relationships thus making it difficult for recovery process to take place if these connections cannot be achieved. The treatment also has little direction from the clinician as most responsibilities come from the client. People these days also seek for therapies that are direct and time –limited and existential therapy sessions can be a lengthy process as some clients are not well versed in verbal communications or are not as expressive as some people thus making very few people to opt existential therapy as their choice.
I grew up in the in the middle to upper class suburbs, sheltered from the daily struggles that many others are forced to deal with each day. Therefore, freedom was simply a given. I was never restricted by my race, my socioeconomic status, or my religious beliefs. Sadly, I lived an extremely sheltered life, which restricted me from uncovering the meaning of freedom. I think freedom is a right that everyone ought to have; however, without ever struggling to obtain freedom, people take it for granted.
Nihilists believe that if determinism is true, there is no free will. They take the stand that everything we do is caused by forces over which we have no control, and as such, we do not and never act freely since such forces cause our actions. Libertarians hold the view that at least some of our actions are not forced on us by the Laws of Nature. Instead, we have the ability to freely choose to perform those actions, and nothing makes us do so. They claim that human choices are not constrained like other events are.
Cultural tourism then was also defined as ‘activity’ and ‘movement’, which insinuate action. ICOMOS (1997) define it as an acitivity, which enables the experiencing of other people’s way of life in order to understand their customs, traditions and thinking. It is in a way an activity of learning. ATLAS (2009) mentioned a similar purpose of cultural tourism as to gather information of a new culture. Unlike the UNWTO (2004), however, who while still defining it as movement, an activity, it is also motivated by the intent of enjoying different cultures.
For instance, the reason why nobody agrees on the solution the most appropriate to solve conflicts of laws, is because each state has its own tradition, and while some are used to emigration, some others are not and would rather apply a basic connecting factor. This is reflected in the diversity of connecting factors which all have their specific characteristics: for instance, a person can only have one habitual residence, but many ordinary residence, and the latter can be acquire in a single day whereas the first one requires a certain period of
While we do use the same time-measuring system, our time is definitely ours to spend. Now, how do we value our time? There’s a clear link between self-fulfillment and valuing our time. In simple terms — if we value ourselves, then we value our time. It doesn’t mean that any time spent irrationally is an outcome of low self-esteem, though.
Leisure time is, then, discretionary time, and leisure activities are a matter of individual judgment and undirected choices (Voss, 2000, p. 101). As such, leisure should provide a much better indication of differences in preferences that may exist among social strata. Substantiation for this position can be found in the sociological literature where a number of studies have examined the effects of social class and occupational status on the selection of leisure activities. Reisman (2001), and Burdge (2000) report similar findings, essentially demonstrating that differences in social class and/or occupational are responsible for differences in preferred leisure activities.
