Finding the right balance of entertainment to work and home life is very important to me. My two children occupy a lot of my time so that limits the amount of free time my husband and I have. Sometimes we have a family board game night with our children so that we can all laugh and bond closer together, but sometimes we like to be alone with just us two, so what entertains the two of us may not be the same thing that entertains our children. We prefer electronic entertainment such as television and movies.
When my husband wants to entertain himself, he prefers getting absorbed into the fantasy world of video games. Myself, I am a painter and enjoy painting watercolors of ocean settings. When it comes to consuming entertainment, my children are on a whole different level than myself. Theyre short attention spans cause them to get bored frequently, so I like to get creative to remedy this. Sometimes I tell them to go outside and play a sport, so that they can get exercise along with playtime, and sometimes I have them do more mental projects like putting together a puzzle or coloring a picture, so that their minds get exercise as well.
Those who say that sports are only for men are totally wrong. Sports can be a great hobby for anyone, men and women alike. Following a particular team and sport can be a great deal of fun even if you don’t play or never played the particular sport yourself. There are so many sports out there, from the old standards of basketball, baseball, football, and soccer to less popular ones like lacrosse, rugby, and badminton. There are many different sports leagues available for adults to play in at local fitness clubs and through city recreation programs. Why not try something new with friends? Participating in sports can be a lot more fun than working out alone at the gym. If you aren’t an athlete or one who wants to participate yourself in a sport, it can be fun as well to just choose a sport or two to be a fan of. If you pick a team to support, it can be even more fun. Have some friendly banter with your friends who support other teams and get together on game days for some fun. Either go to the game and tailgate if that is an option or watch it at home on television. Sports can be a great platform for a party or get-together, not just for men, but for women too or mixed groups.
