Leisure can be defined as those activities which people do in their free time, because they want to, for their own sake, for fun, entertainment, selfimprovement, or for goals of their own choosing, but not for material gain. It is not the same as free time; for example some people have a lot of this, but don’t know what to do with it and don’t regard it as leisure. However, free time is necessary to have leisure at all.
