Can working parents in America—or anywhere—ever find true leisure time?
According to the Leisure Studies Department at the University of Iowa, true leisure is “that place in which we realize our humanity.” If that’s true, argues Brigid Schulte, then we're doing dangerously little realizing of our humanity.

Break the Bonds of Anxiety-Driven Procrastination

You know that postponing things you need to do can result in negative consequences-overdue bills, unhappy supervisors, disappointed friends and romantic partners, and feelings of guilt or dread-but something inside keeps you from taking action.

With The Worrier's Guide to Overcoming Procrastination, you'll develop the skills you need to understand and conquer the anxiety that lies at the root of your chronic avoidance. These proven skills for overcoming procrastination will help you to work productively, enjoy guilt-free leisure time, and free yourself from the anxiety that holds you back.

In his compelling new book, Chris Rojek turns this shibboleth on its head to demonstrate how leisure has become a form of labor. Ranging widely from an analysis of the inflated aspirations of the leisure society thesis to the culture of deception that permeates leisure choice, the author shows how leisure is inextricably linked to emotional labor and intelligence. It is now a school for life. In challenging the orthodox understandings of freedom and free time, The Labour of Leisure sets out an indispensable new approach to the meaning of leisure.

In The March of Spare Time, Susan Currell explores how and why leisure became an object of such intense interest, concern, and surveillance during the Great Depression. As Americans experienced record high levels of unemployment, leisure was thought by reformers, policy makers, social scientists, physicians, labor unions, and even artists to be both a cause of and a solution to society's most entrenched ills. Of all the problems that faced America in the 1930s, only leisure seemed to offer a panacea for the rest.

Your Guide To Healthy Sleep

Margie Patlak, «Your Guide To Healthy Sleep»

Think of everything you do during your day. Try to guess which activity is so important you should devote one-third of your time to doing it. Probably the first things that come to mind are working, spending time with your family, or pursuing leisure activities. But there’s something else you should be doing about one-third of your time—sleeping.
Many people view sleep as merely a “down time” when their brain shuts off and their body rests. In a rush to meet work, school, family, or household responsibilities, people cut back on their sleep, thinking it won’t be a problem, because all of these other activities seem much more important. But research reveals that a number of vital tasks carried out during sleep help to maintain good health and enable people to function at their best.
