A recent study states that happiness depends, at least in part, on believing that leisure activities are not a waste of time. The study author shares, “While work can impart meaning and a sense of purpose in life, leisure, such as time with family and friends, hobbies, and exercise, is what makes our our lives happy and healthy.”

“But not everyone sees value in time spent on leisure. Many hold a general belief that these activities are an unproductive use of time—at the cost of their own happiness. We find that believing leisure is wasteful causes time spent on leisure to be less enjoyable.”
