Topic: Some people think that it is important to use leisure time for activities that improve the mind, such as reading and doing word puzzles. Other people feel that it is important to rest the mind during leisure time.

In one day, we do a lot of things, such as studying, working at office, doing housework… and those activities are taking much of energy and concentration. We, hence, need to take a break, we must have time for relaxing, otherwise, we would be stressful.

After all, doing these things not only help us relax but also sharpen our thinking skill.
