|▶ Your Answer :|
In contemporary society, how to spend leisure time became one of the most important issues people talk about as the average income level has increased compared to the past. In my case, I prefer to spend my free time outdoors than to stay indoors. Not only outdoor activities allow me to get more sunlight but also it enables me to explore the city where I live in.
First of all, spending free time outside provides me more opportunities to be exposed to the sunlight. Today, many people tend to spend most of their day indoors such as in class rooms and offices doing their busy works. According to a study conducted by Korea university, about 60 percent of Korean people suffer from Vitamin D deficiency and the main reason has been revealed as lack of exposure to the sun. Sunlight is essential for our health, as it prevents vitamin D deficiency and depression. In line with this, I would rather spend my free time outside doing fun activities under the sun, getting enough sunshine.
Secondly, staying outdoors gives me chance to explore my city where I live in. My city Seoul is full of exciting events and good outdoor sports facilities such as green parks and hiking courses. Even though I have lived in this city more than 10 years, I have not yet fully discovered what my city has to offer me because I am fairly busy all the time. During my leisure time is only when I can walk around the city and enjoy various activities and events on the streets and public parks.
In conclusion, I prefer to spend my free time outdoors than stay indoors. This is because I can get more sunlight which is essential and walk around to discover my city by spending my leisure time outdoors.
