SOCIETAL ROLES
Leisure’s roles are not static, but rather they change and evolve with the circumstances in which we find ourselves.

Roles played by leisure are not always positive or constructive, but can be destructive to individual, family, community and society.

ROLES RELATED TO THE INDIVIDUAL
Roles more salient at particular stages of one’s life while others are active across lifespan (freysinger). Life events can also alter role that leisure plays in one’s life.

Four key roles:
1) Enjoyment
2) Identity development
3) Skill development
4) Persona wellness

Leisure is a source of enjoyment.
Definition : activity that is
a) freely chosen
b) intrinsically motivated (done for own sake)
c) provides the opportunity to use our own particular skills in interesting ways (Kelly)

engaging in activities can have a variety of positive outcomes ranging from enhanced moods to feelings of accomplishment and mastery. All related to what we call satisfaction or employment

Recalling positive leisure experiences long after they have occurred can improve moods (iso-ahola)

Enjoyment enhances how we feel about our lives. Those who take time to participate in leisure tend to report greater life satisfaction (Riddick)

Leisure interacts with identity development. Plays a key role n helping individuals develop their own sense of self, by offering freedom to explore, experiment with or try on different roles (Kelly)
