Recreations are an important part of people＇s life. For example, after hours of attentive study, students will feel like having a football game to relax their nerves. Workers may find it very satisfying to sit in front of a TV set for an hour or two when they come back from a day＇s tiring work. Besides, recreations serve as a pleasant way for the retired people to pass their job-free time. Everywhere you go, you will find that during their spare time, people are engaged in recreational activities of sue kind or another.
Generally speaking, there are two kinds of recreations: physical activities and intellectual activities. Physical activities keep one fit and develop team spirit. Basketball is an example. Intellectual activities, such as playing chess and reading novels, can train one＇s brain and provide temporary escape from one＇s trouhles.
In my opinion, there should be a balance between the two forms of activities. This is because physical activities are necessary for good health while intellectual activities are beneficial to one＇s mind. There fore, in order to make his life enjoyable and colorful, one should go in for beth kinds of pastimes.
