take a break: leisure

Jun 27, 2013

Do you ever find that you long for a break from study or work, or from the busyness of life, then the weekend or vacation comes, then goes, and you are left feeling as though you need another weekend right now?

I suspect we all know the feeling. Last century the well-respected German philosopher Josef Pieper wrote about this in his book Leisure: the basis of Culture.

Pieper suggests that our misguided belief that everything of value can be achieved through work has eliminated our culture’s ability to truly relax and to play.  Pieper reminds us that leisure is the basis of healthy human existence, and therefore of a healthy culture.

You might like to take a few moments to relax with this video clip. I guarantee it will make you change the way you want to use your leisure time.
