Inherent to human is the unending thirst for knowledge and hunger for power. They work five to six days a week, eight hours or more per day just to reach and achieve what their human side has long craved for. But no matter how human crave for success, even the shrewdest of them all also needs a little time away from the heat of the spotlight and give priority to their other human needs-relaxation. They go out, smell the flowers once in a while, visit spas, and shop until their credit cards complain or they would go for recreation and sports.
Recreational activities as well as sports activities are very popular alternatives for relaxing. They have been existing for quite sometime and businessmen as well as career-women resort to them when they feel that their profession is taking too hard to handle or is taking too much of who they are.
Recreation and sports take two of the different ways of relaxing. Just under it, you can find numerous ways on how to spend your time until you are fully recovered.
Do the Boogie (Ballroom Dancing). Dancing never fails to help those who are worn-out to regain the energy that they need. Every sweat you release and every penny you pay is worth it. Ballroom dancing also involves a lot of people to whom a couple can communicate with. Good for young professionals but middle age women are big fans of this recreation activity.
Climb To the Top (Nature Hiking). Admit it, the city is not a very ideal place to live in. With all its noise and pollution that never fails to give you a dose of headache almost everyday, anybody, even superman, would really want to leave the place even for days just to smell fresh air. Mountain hiking and nature trips are good options if you want to see green everywhere you look. It is good for your health as well as a means for socializing. Not for the faint hearted. Climbing the mountain is not as easy as what you think it is. There are hurdles to overcome, not to mention the rocky cliffs. Be prepared.
One in a Hole (Golf). Although budget would be a big issue, the effect of playing golf to relieve anyone is magical. Be surrounded with green and lush environment. Golf enthusiasts do not just come to the golf course just to play. Some of them are also there to take a ride on golf carts and check out cart parts. Even outside the course, there are still some who grew fondness with golf car accessories and cart parts.
Aim for 3-points (Basketball ). When we say recreation and sports, the very first thing that comes into the mind of anyone who is listening is a big amount of cash. That is absolutely wrong. Relaxing does not require a person to spend more than what he could earn, because it can come in any form like playing basketball with your neighbor. Or play catch with your 6-year old son. It can be simple, and it wouldn’t matter at all.
Bonfire with Girls (Camping). Extreme sports as well as luxurious activities are really unnecessary when you want to relax. One good recreational activity includes a healthy environment and good friends. You have good and hearty topics to talk about over steaks and barbecues. You check how each of you has been while you sit in front of the fire. Nothing can be as relaxing as this.
Let us accept it. Being a work-freak and power-hungry goes with our being a human. And it is perfectly normal. But that doesn’t excuse us not to look after how ourselves have been. Are we healthy, are we happy, are we still living and not just merely breathing? It is our obligation to stop and pause for a while. Look round us and enjoy the things we can still enjoy. May it be dancing or putting together cart parts. What is important is that we live.
