Active leisure: Often recreational and social in nature, it involves using physical or mental energy. (Like exercise, hobbies, or doing something with friends)
Passive leisure: Activities that involve using little or no physical or mental activity. Like zoning out watching tv, scrolling social media or drinking beer while sunbathing.
Everybody spends their downtime differently… And I don’t want to tell you how to live your Sunday.
But just like Barry White says — “Too much of anything is not good for you, baby”.
A healthy life means a balance of both active and passive leisure activities.
Examples of Passive Leisure:
Here is a list of passive leisure activities, which involve very little mental or physical effort:
- Listening to music
- Watching TV or a movie
- Sunbathing or lounging
- Reading books or magazines
- Scrolling through pictures
- Meditating or napping
- Drawing or painting
Examples of Active Leisure:

So this is your Sunday morning reminder to relax as much as you can today, but don’t forget to use your brain 🧠 and your body 💪
Make it a great day!
