Four hundred and forty usable questionnaires returned from a mailout random sample of 2,500 households of Prince George, British Columbia in November 1999 formed the working data-set for our analyses.We constructed 13 indexes measuring the degrees to which respondents thought they benefitted in a variety of ways from engaging in leisure time activities, and 4 indexes summarizing the activities respondents actually engaged in during each of the four seasons.Juggling household chores and school work does not allow my sister with enough time to go to the gym or spend time with her friends very often.
The activities performed for leisure are divided into two categories; passive leisure time and active leisure time.
The department of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (2013) defines passive leisure time as the time spent on rudimentary activities that require minimal mental and physical exertion.
Using SF-36 to assess respondents’ health, we showed that there was little change in the overall health of residents of this community over the past year, and that there were indeed significant positive correlations between every one of the 8 dimensions of health measured by SF-36 and several of the indexes of leisure activities.
The Fall and Winter Physical Activities index was positively related to 6 of the 8 SF-36 dimensions and the Spring and Summer Physical Activities index was positively related to 5.
The two Sedentary Activities indexes were unrelated to any dimension of SF-36.
Satisfaction levels for 7 of 15 specific domains of life and for life as a whole were lower in 1999 than in 1997, but there were no statistically significant differences in the other 8 domains, happiness or satisfaction with the overall quality of life.
To beat that 8% margin, they spend hours overnight committing more time.
Further to this, this increasing trend among the kids studying in schools is pathetic as it is compromising on their health.
In many countries, school-age children spend their free time doing homework. To begin with, it is prevalent in many countries that children studying in schools spend a lot of their time in completing homework.
The reason is that they are over-burned to complete extra work on every subject such as Science, Mathematics, and others.
