Now, we continue with the shopping activity among the students. Yes, the result showed that some of the students like to kill their spare time by
shopping. In my opinion, the reason why the students like to shopping is to release their tension. We can consider that the students are busy with their
study and assignments. So, we guest that in order to release their tension, based on the survey, the students like shopping to have satisfied in
someone's by just looking to thing that they admire all this time. However, this activity will become worse to the one who cannot manage it well.
This activity will lead to the carelessness in their study and also money management. Indeed, it is totally not good for the students. Moreover, the
students like shopping because they want to be up to date to the latest fashion. Some students are really like to have the latest fashion such like
clothes, cosmetic products and also the mobile phone. This is a good for the students to make them up to date and can develop them simultaneously to
the world development. The cause of this will also lead to the waste of money. The latest fashion is high in quality and also the price. The students
should use their money for studying not for unnecessary things. Based on our survey also, we can see that students mostly shopping to release their
tension. Our first observation has proved that shopping is the way

Introduction
Leisure time itself can be defined in many ways. According to Cordes (2003), "the meaning of leisure varies among cultures and that there is little
agreement about its meaning and implications... some see leisure as freedom from work, while others view it as an important tool of social control or
a symbol of one's status". We have all experienced leisure in our lifetime. We have all taken part in activities we deem fun, exciting, or relaxing. The
purpose of reflecting upon the various ways we spend our free time is to provide reflection upon our lives. Free time is valued, and by reflecting
upon what we do with our time can help us find insight on whether or not our free time is spent wisely. As I reflect upon my life experience in
relation to Nash's Paradigm of Free Time, I hope to gain more insight on how I have been spending my free time. I expect to reflect upon the less
productive times and make a change on how to spend my free time better.
Injury to Society Injury to society includes delinquency and crime. When I was in high school, around 15 or 16 years old, I used to shoplift things
from the store. While I did do these things out of boredom, I had mostly stolen things for the monetary value. My leisure time was spent mostly at the
mall, with other friends who would steal as well. Eventually I did get caught, and fortunately I was let off with just a warning. After that, I never stole
again. The effect of me stealing as a teen has left an emotional

The Influence Of Leisure Activities
There is always a choice of things that we are able to do in our leisure time. Whether the
activity involves, driving with friends, going to a movie, or working out, there is always a
choice. What most people do not realize, is our choices have several influences. As reported
by Leisure enhancement (2004), leisure is a free–willed act that one chooses to do during their
free time, where one does not feel obliged to do, mindless if it is enjoyable to them or not. Be
that as it may, how does one engage in an activity unwillingly without pressure or influences?
These influences better known as sociocultural factors, are the main influences that drive us to be

To put this in perspective, that means I
spend approximately 3 hours a day doing physical activity. The physical activity I take part in,
and other leisure time activities such as hanging out with my friends and visual entertainment
(TV and video games), takes up 25% of my week, which is 1 quarter. I also found that I spend
33% of my week (56 hours) sleeping. This is a lot of leisure time that's spent sleeping, instead of
other activities. I spend most of my week with school related activities and responsibilities such
as class, homework, council, and walking between classes. This together takes up about 30% of
my week, which is about 1/3rd of my weekly schedule. Since I rarely travel because of living on
residence, I only travel about 4–6 hours a week on transit which is only 3%. The rest of my free
time during the week is spent doing residence chores such as cleaning, cooking, and organizing.
This takes up about 9% of my weekly schedule. It would seem that in total most of my leisure
time is spent doing physical activities, and things that I would like to do, instead of things that
rather constrain me from participating. This ultimately is the cause of the sociocultural factors
that, I face. How they are facilitated can be viewed further in my time map.
When speaking about leisure time, the words agency and structure come to mind due to

How Should We Best Fill Our Leisure Time Essay
The ancients talked of a human body as a microcosm, or a little world. The world's most inevitable feature is the process of progress. The first
bonfire made by a man led to the first nuclear power plant. Similarly, human beings also grow up from a helpless baby to an independent adult. We
take tasks and complete them, which makes up our improvement, whatever the task is, moreover, people generally satisfy with an accomplished
challenge, awarded with an improvement. As our world, we cannot improve in stagnation. Therefore, even our hobbies, the way we spend our leisure

Whenever we feel our microcosm is changing, we are on the right way of improving ourselves. However, the arts cannot be considered the only part of
life.
Socializing with friends will enable us to improve our self–esteem and strengthen relationships. When we feel lonely and fictional worlds are not as
fascinating as they used to be, we need to leave the comfort zone and encounter fresh people. Psychologists of the University of Michigan claim that
"as people engage socially and mentally with others, they receive relatively immediate cognitive boosts ". Not only is that challenging, but also useful.
In addition, communication promotes us to a next level of hobbies such as sport games and creating a garage rock band, which are impossible to
maintain alone. What is vital for self–improvement is exchanging ideas with other people, especially with those who have a different opinion. The
happiness of our family life, the strength of our friendships and the success of our careers straightly depend on how capable we are of socializing.
Although in order to 'widen the pool' we should somehow find a way to boost the amount of people we meet.

Leisure Time for Student
Chapter–1
1.1 Background
Leisure time defines freedom provided by the cessation of activities; especially: time free from work or duties. Leisure, or free time, is time spent
away from business, work, and domestic chores. It is also the periods of time before or after necessary activities such as eating, sleeping and, where it
is compulsory, education. The distinction betweenleisure and unavoidable activities is loosely applied. A distinction may also be drawn between free
time and leisure.
Leisure is one's discretionary time spent in non–compulsory activities, time spent away from cares and toils. Because leisure time is free from

Use of Leisure Time
Most people would agree that Americans are workaholics. Sixty– and seventy–hour workweeks are nearly the norm in this society. College students
carry eighteen credit hours plus a part–time job. Therefore, what people choose to do with their precious free time says a lot about them. Knowing the
relative amount of time that they spend with their friends or family, shopping, or sitting at home with the TV is a good indication of the entire state of
the culture. Even the types of public places people go for recreation are signs of what is important to them.
I have my own theory of what people mostly do with their free time. My theory is similar to what Ray Oldenburg said in The Problem of Place in
...show more content...
I suspected that some of the trends would be split between college–age students and those older.
The results of the survey were very surprising. They did not support my hypothesis at all. On question one, which was meant to determine how much
of their leisure time people spent at home, Oldenburg's theory would expect to find the average percentage of time people spent at home was
somewhere around 75 percent. Out of 26 people, though, the average percentage was only 51.9 percent. So it seems that most people don't spend the
majority of their time at home after all.
On question two, which pertained to the percentage of leisure time spent shopping, I was way off. I also expected this number to be pretty high
because we do live in a consumer culture. In reality, the average came out to 30.77 percent with the large majority spending only 25 percent of their
time shopping.
Question three addressed the idea that there is no place in most people's communities where they can go to meet people they know without having to
prearrange it. In this topic, I was just as wrong as in all the others. This was the one question that was sharply divided between age groups. Seventeen of
the twenty–six respondents said that they did have a place they could expect to see someone they knew. Thirteen of the seventeen were under
twenty–six. All nine of the people who responded "no" were over the age of twenty–six. Young people are much more likely to have a

Leisure Time : How Can We Define Leisure?
Leisure Time Essay How can we define leisure? Leisure is free time from the demands of work or duty, when one can rest, enjoy hobbies or sports,
etc. In the book it says, "The word "leisure" evokes a variety of thoughts, images, and concepts. Normative de–notations of the word have traditionally
been expressed in terms of free time or activity and some scholars have added state of mind as an alternative definition of the word (see Mannell &
Kleiber, 1997)". When you are bored, your leisure time can be a stress reliever from the things that occur in your everyday life such as going to
work. It can be a time to reflect and spend time with your loved ones. George Eastman once said, "What we do during our working hours
determines what we have; what we do in our leisure hours determines what we are" (George Eastman, Brainy quotes). Having leisure time can also
determine who you will and can become. Leisure can also consist of hobbies you enjoy when you do not have to work. Our interviewees have their
own unique leisure activities that they personally like doing. Different acts might be difficult for people of different ages and gender. Our goal was to
find out if age and gender determine what leisure activity people do. We interviewed three people of different ages and gender in order to learn their
specific leisure activities and leisure constraints. Aman, interviewed his 45–year–old mother Salma Haji about her leisure time activities and her leisure

Leisure And Leisure Time Vs. Leisure Time
We do not only gain utility from our consumption. We also gain utility from leisure. Leisure time is the time you spend outside of work. In the
similar way of maximizing utility from our purchases, we decide the number of hours of work that will yield us the highest utility, in other words,
that makes us the happiest. People make money by giving up some leisure time. The more leisure hours you sacrifice to go to work, the more
income you earn. Leisure time or activities are contrasted, implicitly or directly, with worktime or productive activities. (Moore and Hedges, 1971)
Leisure time could be used for vacation, resting, playing golf or other activities that we enjoy doing. Thus, economists see leisure as a normal good
that provides us with satisfaction. On the other hand, income generates purchasing power so we can purchase goods and services we desire. In other
words, income gives us satisfaction in an indirect way. As both income and leisure yieldutility, everyone has their own indifference curve between
income and leisure, depending on personal preferences.
An indifference curve is constituted by a set of combinations of income and leisure hours that yield the same level of utility. Indifference curves are
downward sloping and convex to the origin. They are parallel to each other– they do not intersect. The distance between an indifference curve and the
origin indicates the utility level of the individual, as it gets longer, the satisfaction of the individual becomes

Leisure Time Essay
To the most of the people, when they think about the leisure, they always have the common image of "free time where you do activities that relax you
and make you happy'; "Taking it easy, not working too hard" or "Something outside of the work day that promotes positive feelings". But other than
these, the meaning of the "leisure" is more thoughtful and deep.
The authority define of leisure is "activity chosen in relative freedom for its qualities of satisfaction." And the John Kelly defined that "Freely chosen
because the activity, companions, or some combination of the two promises personal satisfaction." Leisure as part of people's life, became more and
more important. Nowadays, people have pay more attention to the "leisure time" and...show more content...
(Definitions of Leisure, n.d). For each person, the way to take a leisure are all different, leisure is both contextual and highly subjective. Because
people are all different from each other, each person have the individual though. They might interest in different area and things to do. (Sid, n.d.).
Therefore, to find a good way to take a leisure is really important. To find the fit activities of leisure activities will makes each of us have the best
advantage to take from the leisure time.
There are several reason that why I choose to write about this topic: First, before I have taken this class, I haven't have a chance to really
understand and know more about the "leisure". In my mind, the leisure is just a time that people can "take a break with", it is a relaxing time for
the people to do whatever they wants to do, just choose the activities that makes them feel happy. Before taking this class, in my point of view, there
is nothing to learn about leisure. And I have the thought that there is not much thing to learn and it is not that meaningful or worthy enough to take a
class that only discussion about the "leisure". The reason I pick this class at first, is all because I have known a lot of friends are taking it, and I
would like to take the class with them. In my mind, the "leisure" is a part of the psychology that have way less to learn compare to the other subject. But

My Favorite Leisure Experiences In My Life
Throughout my life my leisure activities have changed many times. From playing video games; to sports and hanging out with friends. Out of my
many favorite leisure experiences my most favorite would be hanging out with friends. Being with other people and having fun is one of the best
feelings to me because it takes off all the stress of my life difficulties. It is very important to reflect on one's past and present leisure experiences because
they reminds of the best and most fun memorable moments in our lives. We live in a very stressful society where we hardly have any fun time due
to work, school, or just our very busy lives. During stressful times or difficult times reflecting on those memorable moments has a very positive
impact on us. As I have grown older I have definitely experienced many of the levels of Nash's Paradigm of Free Time.
When I was in middle school I participated in activities that would be classified as acts performed against society on Nash's Paradigm. At the time
I was about 14 years old and did not think thoroughly about my actions. I used to participate in shoplifting and vandalism as my leisure activities.
Me and my friends would hang out after school and tag the walls around our school and would go into stores to steal snacks or drinks. At the time I did
not realise how irresponsible and idiotic my actions were. At first when I began to tag it had a bad psychological effect on me because I would be
paranoid I was going to get caught by the cops or someone of authority. The more I did it the less paranoid I felt but never felt completely safe and
always had a negative psychological effect. Tagging the walls was a way to express how I felt at the time. I felt I had to represent my crew which i was
involved with. Participating in these activities did have a physical effect because most of the time I did a lot of running. Whenever someone
would catch us we had to run away as fast as we could and it would get us tired. It did make me feel good the running had a good effect on my body as
it slimed me down a bit. This was a very social activity. Sometimes we would walk around in groups of 10–15 guys just messing around and having

There are so many activities you can do, quading, hunting, fishing, walking, wakeboarding, water skiing, and most importantly enjoying the fresh

experience. it is an activity of leisure that people are engaged in free time, outside of paid work. It is often referred to activities that are structured
properly and have set rules. Unlike leisure, recreation has an intention of being ethically worthy to the person as well as to society all in all. Examples

The Leisure Time Of Adolescents
Introduction Leisure is the free time that typically is used for enjoyment. As an individual grows their interests change, their routines change, and the
way they spend free time changes. As a child, much of their lives consist of free time, and as an adult if you have free time it is typically minimal and
spent doing sedentary acts like watching TV. What varies the most is theleisure time of adolescents. This is the time when they start to gain a sense of
self and begin a journey to find their interests and it is typically what teens will spend time doing. The focus to see how the area they live in, either
rural or urban effects their lives and their leisure time.
Findings
Rural and urban areas have different availabilities for what there is to do when one has free time. One cannot go driving around on muddy trails on a
four–wheeler in a city where an individual who lives in the country has more likely of a chance of that being an option. How adolescents spend their
time is much different from adults and children, but as a teen, they are still on a search for their identity and the most exploration is done in and around
an adolescent period. A study that was conducted in Australia focused on teens and how leisure effects their self–esteem and satisfaction. Winsome

am glad I was able to read through the course text as well as get a different point of view into the topics through the interesting course lectures as I
was finally able to see exactly how leisure affects public planning, time management, and the motivation of employees. I couldn't agree more that the
concept of leisure is definitely something I will have to come across as my career takes me further into management. The first idea I which I had
learned from a mentor is to always set goals in order to achieve anything in life. I always set goals in every aspect from school work, cleaning around

About 20 students in the same cohort were asked an how their spend their leisure time. Students were required to tick items on a given list and give a reason why they chose the activity. Whenever the students are free, most of them about 45% will surf the internet. It was found that 30% chose involve in sports to fill up their leisure time.

Indirectly, we're more likely to revise lessons without drowsiness. Now, we continue with the shopping activity among the students. Yes, the result showed that some of the students like to kill their spare time by shopping. In my opinion, the reason why the students like to shopping is to release their tension. We can consider that the students are busy with their study and assignments. So, we guest that in order to release their tension, based on the survey, the students like shopping to have satisfied in someone's by just looking to thing that they admire all this time. However, this activity will become worse to the one who cannot manage it well. This activity will lead to the carelessness in their study and also money management. Indeed, it is totally not good for the students. Moreover, the students like shopping because they want to be up to date to the latest fashion. Some students are really like to have the latest fashion such like clothes, cosmetic products and also the mobile phone. This is a good for the students to make them up to date and can develop them simultaneously to the world development. The cause of this will also lead to the waste of money. The latest fashion is high in quality and also the price. The students should use their money for studying not for unnecessary things. Based on our survey also, we can see that students mostly shopping to release their tension. Our first observation has proved that shopping is the way Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 2. Introduction Leisure time itself can be defined in many ways. According to Cordes (2003), "the meaning of leisure varies among cultures and that there is little agreement about its meaning and implications... some see leisure as freedom from work, while others view it as an important tool of social control or a symbol of one's status". We have all experienced leisure in our lifetime. We have all taken part in activities we deem fun, exciting, or relaxing. The purpose of reflecting upon the various ways we spend our free time is to provide reflection upon our lives. Free time is valued, and by reflecting upon what we do with our time can help us find insight on whether or not our free time is spent wisely. As I reflect upon my life experience in relation to Nash's Paradigm of Free Time, I hope to gain more insight on how I have been spending my free time. I expect to reflect upon the less productive times and make a change on how to spend my free time better. Injury to Society Injury to society includes delinquency and crime. When I was in high school, around 15 or 16 years old, I used to shoplift things from the store. While I did do these things out of boredom, I had mostly stolen things for the monetary value. My leisure time was spent mostly at the mall, with other friends who would steal as well. Eventually I did get caught, and fortunately I was let off with just a warning. After that, I never stole again. The effect of me stealing as a teen has left an emotional Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 3. The Importance of Leisure Time Essay The Importance of Leisure Time *No Works Cited Leisure is defined as freedom from the demands of work or duty. Everybody needs leisure in their lives, to balance the stress of work and life. Leisure helps re–energize and relax people, so they can perform activities well in their lives. People use their free time (leisure time) in a variety of different ways; engaging in outdoor activities, entertainment like watching movies or television, or just having time to themselves.. Another activity people enjoy doing is just socializing with family and friends. Leisure is an essential part of our lives, and the only problem with leisure is when can we enjoy it?

The near–retirement stage are individuals ranging from the ages of 50 and up. These people are on the verge of retirement and are planning what to do with the rest of their lives. After their careers are over they are going to have nothing but time on they hands. At this point of there careers they are working lesser hours and responsibility at their job is decreasing. This helps make the transition from working to retirement much easier. I made a survey and issued it to three people who fall into the three stages. The survey consisted of a variety of question like age, gender, occupation, wages, leisure time, and activities. The first individual who took the survey fell into the beginning stage. This person is a twenty one year old black male. He is a full time student at Illinois State and workers part time as a life guard at a indoor pool. He is not married and has no children. He works twenty plus hours a week and only makes $6.30 a hour. He works five days a week, but sometimes takes morning shifts on Saturdays. He considered leisure as any time away from work and school. He said he does not get a lot of leisure time, because he does not have any time to just relax. He has class all morning then in the evening he works and comes home and studies. The only leisure time he has is over Get more content on HelpWriting.net

  • 5. The Influence Of Leisure Activities There is always a choice of things that we are able to do in our leisure time. Whether the activity involves, driving with friends, going to a movie, or working out, there is always a choice. What most people do not realize, is our choices have several influences. As reported by Leisure enhancement (2004), leisure is a free–willed act that one chooses to do during their free time, where one does not feel obliged to do, mindless if it is enjoyable to them or not. Be that as it may, how does one engage in an activity unwillingly without pressure or influences? These influences better known as sociocultural factors, are the main influences that drive us to be who we are. They also determine how we spend our...show more content... To put this in perspective, that means I spend approximately 3 hours a day doing physical activity. The physical activity I take part in, and other leisure time activities such as hanging out with my friends and visual entertainment (TV and video games), takes up 25% of my week, which is 1 quarter. I also found that I spend 33% of my week (56 hours) sleeping. This is a lot of leisure time that's spent sleeping, instead of other activities. I spend most of my week with school related activities and responsibilities such

Since I rarely travel because of living on residence, I only travel about 4–6 hours a week on transit which is only 3%. The rest of my free time during the week is spent doing residence chores such as cleaning, cooking, and organizing. This takes up about 9% of my weekly schedule. It would seem that in total most of my leisure time is spent doing physical activities, and things that I would like to do, instead of things that rather constrain me from participating. This ultimately is the cause of the sociocultural factors that, I face. How they are facilitated can be viewed further in my time map. When speaking about leisure time, the words agency and structure come to mind due to their power in relation to ones leisure time. Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 7. How Should We Best Fill Our Leisure Time Essay The ancients talked of a human body as a microcosm, or a little world. The world's most inevitable feature is the process of progress. The first bonfire made by a man led to the first nuclear power plant. Similarly, human beings also grow up from a helpless baby to an independent adult. We take tasks and complete them, which makes up our improvement, whatever the task is, moreover, people generally satisfy with an accomplished challenge, awarded with an improvement. As our world, we cannot improve in stagnation. Therefore, even our hobbies, the way we spend our leisure time by, should be challenging. For example, Americans tend to 'kill' their time watching TV , which leads to nowhere. While a task to accomplish might be learning how to...show more content... Whenever we feel our microcosm is changing, we are on the right way of improving ourselves. However, the arts cannot be considered the only part of life. Socializing with friends will enable us to improve our self–esteem and strengthen relationships. When we feel lonely and fictional worlds are not as fascinating as they used to be, we need to leave the comfort zone and encounter fresh people. Psychologists of the University of Michigan claim that "as people engage socially and mentally with others, they receive relatively immediate cognitive boosts ". Not only is that challenging, but also useful. In addition, communication promotes us to a next level of hobbies such as sport games and creating a garage rock band, which are impossible to maintain alone. What is vital for self–improvement is exchanging ideas with other people, especially with those who have a different opinion. The happiness of our family life, the strength of our friendships and the success of our careers straightly depend on how capable we are of socializing. Although in order to 'widen the pool' we should somehow find a way to boost the amount of people we meet. Learning a foreign language provides us with socializing with a larger amount of people and opens. a world of international arts and cultures. It is said that there are at least 6,909 languages in the world , which means that monolinguals limit themselves Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 8. Leisure Time for Student Chapter–1 1.1 Background Leisure time defines freedom provided by the cessation of activities; especially: time free from work or duties. Leisure, or free time, is time spent away from business, work, and domestic chores. It is also the periods of time before or after necessary activities such as eating, sleeping and, where it is compulsory, education.

  • 10. Use of Leisure Time Most people would agree that Americans are workaholics. Sixty– and seventy–hour workweeks are nearly the norm in this society. College students carry eighteen credit hours plus a part–time job. Therefore, what people choose to do with their precious free time says a lot about them. Knowing the relative amount of time that they spend with their friends or family, shopping, or sitting at home with the TV is a good indication of the entire state of the culture. Even the types of public places people go for recreation are signs of what is important to them. I have my own theory of what people mostly do with their free time. My theory is similar to what Ray Oldenburg said in The Problem of Place in ...show more content... I suspected that some of the trends would be split between college–age students and those older. The results of the survey were very surprising. They did not support my hypothesis at all. On question one, which was meant to determine how much of their leisure time people spent at home, Oldenburg's theory would expect to find the average percentage of time people spent at home was somewhere around 75 percent. Out of 26 people, though, the average percentage was only 51.9 percent. So it seems that most people don't spend the majority of their time at home after all. On question two, which pertained to the percentage of leisure time spent shopping, I was way off. I also expected this number to be pretty high because we do live in a consumer culture. In reality, the average came out to 30.77 percent with the large majority spending only 25 percent of their time shopping. Question three addressed the idea that there is no place in most people's communities where they can go to meet people they know without having to prearrange it. In this topic, I was just as wrong as in all the others. This was the one question that was sharply divided between age groups. Seventeen of the twenty–six respondents said that they did have a place they could expect to see someone they knew. Thirteen of the seventeen were under twenty–six. All nine of the people who responded "no" were over the age of twenty–six. Young people are much more likely to have a Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 11. Leisure Time : How Can We Define Leisure? Leisure Time Essay How can we define leisure? Leisure is free time from the demands of work or duty, when one can rest, enjoy hobbies or sports, etc. In the book it says, "The word "leisure" evokes a variety of thoughts, images, and concepts. Normative de–notations of the word have traditionally been expressed in terms of free time or activity and some scholars have added state of mind as an alternative definition of the word (see Mannell & Kleiber, 1997)". When you are bored, your leisure time can be a stress reliever from the things that occur in your everyday life such as going to work. It can be a time to reflect and spend time with your loved ones. George Eastman once said, "What we do during our working hours determines what we have; what we do in our leisure hours determines what we are" (George Eastman, Brainy quotes). Having leisure time can also determine who you will and can become. Leisure can also consist of hobbies you enjoy when you do not have to work. Our interviewees have their own unique leisure activities that they personally like doing. Different acts might be difficult for people of different ages and gender. Our goal was to find out if age and gender determine what leisure activity people do. We interviewed three people of different ages and gender in order to learn their specific leisure activities and leisure constraints.

  • 12. Leisure And Leisure Time Vs. Leisure Time We do not only gain utility from our consumption. We also gain utility from leisure. Leisure time is the time you spend outside of work. In the similar way of maximizing utility from our purchases, we decide the number of hours of work that will yield us the highest utility, in other words, that makes us the happiest. People make money by giving up some leisure time. The more leisure hours you sacrifice to go to work, the more income you earn. Leisure time or activities are contrasted, implicitly or directly, with worktime or productive activities. (Moore and Hedges, 1971) Leisure time could be used for vacation, resting, playing golf or other activities that we enjoy doing. Thus, economists see leisure as a normal good that provides us with satisfaction. On the other hand, income generates purchasing power so we can purchase goods and services we desire. In other words, income gives us satisfaction in an indirect way. As both income and leisure yieldutility, everyone has their own indifference curve between income and leisure, depending on personal preferences. An indifference curve is constituted by a set of combinations of income and leisure hours that yield the same level of utility. Indifference curves are downward sloping and convex to the origin. They are parallel to each other– they do not intersect. The distance between an indifference curve and the origin indicates the utility level of the individual, as it gets longer, the satisfaction of the individual becomes Get more content on HelpWriting.net

As I have grown older I have definitely experienced many of the levels of Nash's Paradigm of Free Time. When I was in middle school I participated in activities that would be classified as acts performed against society on Nash's Paradigm. At the time I was about 14 years old and did not think thoroughly about my actions. I used to participate in shoplifting and vandalism as my leisure activities. Me and my friends would hang out after school and tag the walls around our school and would go into stores to steal snacks or drinks. At the time I did not realise how irresponsible and idiotic my actions were. At first when I began to tag it had a bad psychological effect on me because I would be paranoid I was going to get caught by the cops or someone of authority. The more I did it the less paranoid I felt but never felt completely safe and always had a negative psychological effect. Tagging the walls was a way to express how I felt at the time. I felt I had to represent my crew which i was involved with. Participating in these activities did have a physical effect because most of the time I did a lot of running. Whenever someone would catch us we had to run away as fast as we could and it would get us tired. It did make me feel good the running had a good effect on my body as it slimed me down a bit. This was a very social activity. Sometimes we would walk around in groups of 10–15 guys just messing around and having fun.
