Intro to Leisure (ch 2)
-What is leisure?
provides benefits important to life satisfaction & quality of life (aka happiness)
freedom from work or other commitments (i.e. if someone is competitive but they
can't be competitive at work, they may do things in their leisure time that are
competitive)
leisure means diff things to diff people
-free time, happiness, internal satisfaction, freedom of choice, not work-related,
recreation, play (not just for kids), sports, travel, etc
Two Central Determinants of Leisure
-Intrinsic Motivation: motivation based on enjoyment or interest
occurs when activity is done/desired for its own sake - doing it b/c you want to
only a portion of leisure activities occur without some degree of extrinsic
motivation
to be leisure, SOME aspect of intrinsic motivation must be present
-Perceived Motivation/Freedom:
occurs when initiation of behavior is attributed to yourself
sense of freedom - you are free to choose whether to continue or discontinue
without repercussions.
-over-justification effect: intrinsic motivation decreases after being rewarded.
Starts with high intrinsic motivation.

Leisure vs. Free time
-not synonymous terms, exactly
-much of our free time is not leisure
-“leisure is a small island in a sea of free time” - the bigger the island, the happier
you’ll be
The most important activities are spent with other people (friends/family)
