Free time can be defined as the time when people do not have to work, when they can do whatever they like and enjoy and when they can relax. It is the time of entertainment, fun and relaxation. Free time or leisure time is very important in today’s stressed out world. It’s a time when you can literally do anything. I think free time is very important for us. All of us need some time only for themselves, when we can do some activities, which give us some pleasure – hobbies. Our life is too hectic, fast and difficult. We are daily stressed, so we need some compensation to get rid of stress. Practising of some hobbies is really good way how to relax and feel better.

Activities which you keep on doing regularly become later hobbies. It’s good to have a hobby; they keep you occupied and make you feel good. A hobby doesn’t need to have something in common with sports. You can collect objects of interests, this includes stamps, coins, bottles, stickers, flags and of course many more. Life offers many incredible possibilities. It would be a pity not to choose something what is close to you and your personality.

There are many leisure activities out there. People usually do sports. They can choose from a wide range of indoor or outdoor sports. It just depends on one’s taste. Statistics show that many young men prefer playing football or tennis and ladies prefer biking, hiking (turistika) or playing volleyball. Sports are very good for getting rid (zbaviť sa) of stress and bad thoughts. You also burn a lot of calories. You feel wonderful afterwards and you are ready to face the daily problems of your life with a clean mind...

Of course many people prefer easier way how to spend their free time - in front of a TV or a computer. No doubt that TV and computer are a huge benefit nowadays for making our life easier but many scientific researches show that it’s unhealthy to sit in front of a TV or a computer more than 2 hours a day.
If you ask people about their hobbies, some of them will tell you that their profession is their hobby and they are ready to spend nearly all their free time at work. Psychologists claim that it is not good if you do not get enough relaxation and people whose hobby is different from their profession are much happier because they switch to a new activity in their leisure time which is beneficial for them.

Some people try to develop their talent, so they spend their free time by drawing or painting, writing or playing some musical instrument. Many people do some useful activities like working in their garden, cooking or baking, embroidering, etc. = usually older people. There are many kinds of hobbies which can be practised.
Some people, especially lazy people, prefer psychical activities because they don’t like movement or maybe because they need some psychical stimulation, so they read some books, watch TV or play computer.

The others do rather some physical activities, maybe because of amount of energy. So they practise some kind of sport. It is good and healthy hobby which help us to be fit and keep our body in a good condition. In my opinion it is more useful hobby than sitting in front of television in living room. Of course, someone could argue that it is saver than sport because we can injure by doing some sport but I think it doesn’t happen very often if we beware. I like some sports too, for example skiing. I go skiing whenever it is possible and have never been injured.

There are many people who feel alone and have nobody or they need to care about someone because they don’t have their own children. These people solve this problem by buying some pet, which becomes their hobby and their best friend too. Usually they buy some typical pet like dog or cat but sometimes they want to have something extraordinary like iguana or spider. This kind of hobby becomes popular particularly in last century. In the past it wasn’t so usual to have some pet and behave to it like to friend. People used to have animals because they needed them. It was mostly some farm animals such as cow, goat, pig… because they were useful. Now we have them because of our pleasure.

Some people buy a pet because now it is “in” and they behave to it like to supplement of fashion. Lot of celebrities buy some little dogs and want to be seen with them in front of cameras but then they give the pet away because it isn’t fashionable anymore. In think this is a sign of irresponsibility and insensibility.
