Recreation is anything that is stimulating and rejuvenating for an individual. Some people enjoy nature hikes; others enjoy skiing (or both). The idea behind these activities is to expand the mind and body in a positive, healthy way.

Some solitary examples of recreational activities include reading a book, or taking a trip to the library. Why not explore a genre outside ones you are already fond of, love romances? Take a trip down the mystery genre aisle. Video games are a solitary recreational activity and these days there are not just “shoot em up” games out there but educational ones as well. Flying a kite, fishing, singing and practicing Yoga are all examples, too.

The best reason to take part in these activities is to slow the aging process in that they will help lessen or eliminate stress. Happiness, contentment, fulfillment comes from the feeling that your life is in balance, and when we work too hard with not enough down time, our minds and bodies suffer.

Other, more group-oriented examples of recreational activities include sports of all kinds – football, hockey, basketball, baseball or if those are too physical for you try golf or swimming. Partying is a recreational activity, and one that (usually) makes us happy and gives us a feeling of social connection. That social connection is intrinsic to the well-being of our souls as one of the basic needs of people, in general, is to be accepted.

Shopping is another example, and when done with friends, feeds the soul on two levels, the social connection and the need for people to gather things – (especially women gathering shoes!). There is a “buyer’s high” that occurs when we purchase something we are deeply proud to attain.

Visiting an amusement park with family and friends is a great way to get the heart pumping and the adrenalin racing. A day of fresh air and sun, with family and friends is a supreme recreational activity.

Other activities include:

-Participating in Martial Arts

-Surfing the Web

-Watching Movies

Examples of recreational activities in an organized fashion take place in nearly every institution we come across. Senior citizens in nursing homes take part in classes to help keep them healthy and alert like bingo, craft projects, and water aerobics.

After school activities for children like pick-up basketball, chess tournaments, and band practice are useful recreational activities.

Even inmates in prison are offered recreational activities to occupy their time. Academic classes, music, hobbies, use on exercise equipment are all examples.

It is even possible to earn a degree in Recreation. A Bachelor of Arts degree is obtainable to become a Recreation Specialist. This is the person that decides the proper recreational activities that will be enjoyed by a particular subset of the population; i.e., inmates, senior citizens, the community as a whole. People with this degree generally work in community recreation centers as well as parks and on community projects.

Participating in any of these examples of recreational activities will not only enhance the quality of your life, but of your friends’ and family’s as well because if you are happier and more content, it can’t help but to rub off on them, destressing many people’s lives in the process.
