Though physical recreation and intellectual activities are two basic ways in which people spend their leisure time, the former is more important for people of my generation, who are in their twenties and who are still studying ahrd for more academic achievements. This view is based on a consideration of our age, our main occupation, and the characteristics of the two forms of recreation.
We young people are full of energy and physically active, but we have to sit for hours a day racking our brains. What we need to complement this way of life is something that can make up the lack of physical exercise and at the same time divert our attention for a while from our academic work. Intellecture activities such as chess games, reading novels, and listening to misic can help us escape from our worries and make us forget our study for a moment, but they involve no physical activities and, what\’s more, they are more or less still a form of mental activities. For instance, we may feel mentally tired afterr some games of chess and our study will be affected. In contrast, physical recreation can provide us with a lot of physical exercises and true mental relaxation. A ballgame, for example, can build up our muscles, flex our joints, speed up our blood circulation, and enhance our bodily organs. After the game, we may feel physically exhausted, but we can sit down and get absorbed in our study more easily.
The above view, however, does not mean that one form is \”meat\” and the other is \”poison\”. Occasionally, when we are physically exhausted or when we are in good mood, a game of chess or an interesting TV program can make us feel much better afterwards.
