Man works for others to earn his livelihood. They have some time apart from their working hours. We call it leisure or free time. Leisure is the most important time in human life. Because during his working hours man does only routine work.
But great ideas, great literary works, great theories and great inventions are the results of man’s leisure. Newton discovered the law of gravitation when he enjoyed his leisure time in the garden. Stephenson invented the steam engine in his spare time.
Misuse of Leisures
Too many people misuse or shove their leisure time. They do not do any useful work in their spare time. they keep
inactive all the time. But the idle mind is the devil’s workshop. Many faults arise in the laziness of man. Therefore, everyone should know how to make the best use of leisure.

Work is man’s best savior. If a person engages himself in some useful work, he does not get time to do any mischief. He doesn’t get time to think bad thoughts. Therefore, man should keep himself engaged in some useful work during his leisure time.
