It relaxes my body, improves concentration and keeps me fresh throughout the day. I enjoy spending time with my family. We have fun together by playing cards, chess, carom board or any other indoor games. It is a great idea to plan some family outing such as visiting a park, museum or aquarium. Joining a sports academy has also helped me a lot by increasing my participation in physical activities and keeping me fit & healthy. It also helps in relieving stress and boosting self-esteem. Whenever, I need to take a short break from my academic activities, I spend some time practicing the sports skills that I learnt during my coaching sessions.
Kids generally tend to get bored during a long journey or even when their family members are busy shopping. They usually prefer to pick up a tab and start playing games. I have an interesting alternative to get rid of this boredom, which is reading books. I ensure to take a book along with me when I step out. This is the best way to utilize our spare time effectively.
