Leisure is to live your life

Feed your soul wholeheartedly,

Harness the power of your positive qualities fully,

To celebrate life, get rid of stress, frustrations

And life sucking obstructions.

Draw yourself towards hobbies for relaxation,

Bring the bubbly feeling in you,

The gaiety will rejuvenate you,

To bring a better you, a lively you.


Yes, feel life wholeheartedly today,

Feel life in you straightaway,

For you are extremely important

To yourself, to bring about contentment.

By leisure activities your energy replenish,

The clouds will vanish,

And enable you to celebrate life as you wish.


Hence, follow the rhythm of the body,

To achieve the melody of the mind smoothly,

The heart and soul’s harmony,

To create the synchronisation of life hopefully,

Steadily and harmoniously.

As the light heart makes you live happily.  

So, let leisure activities make you feel free spirited today,

Fly for it and make it stay.
