"Leisure" Does Not Equal "Lazy"
Many of us probably wake up filled with a certain amount of stress about the impending tasks at hand. It may seem impossible to imagine ever getting a hold over the strenuous day-to-day grind, but that’s where Alison Link comes in. A professor and consultant, Link runs a website called The Leisure Link, which aims to help people and groups make time for leisure in their lives in order to feel more satisfied and make change easier.
One of her clients works in the demanding field of television, and while she looks forward to a “big lifestyle change” in the future, for the present, she must find small ways to get there. Link instructed her to make a list of small changes that she could achieve in 10-15 minutes, such as talking to a good friend on the phone or sitting in the park, that would give her a boost of happiness.
“Every minute is a transition,” Link says, and leisure time can improve our chances of being able to handle each and every one of those transitions.
