Nowadays people literally hate the word “outside.” Nobody wants to go out and have fun anymore like they used to in the past. Gone are the days when parks and streets were packed with kids playing cricket or football. Now, the new-age kids prefer playing PUBG or making cool videos on their mobile phones, lying on beds in the comfort of their homes which makes them lazy and impedes their overall development.
As for adults, they get so busy with their work that even the thought of spending some time out barely crosses their mind, leading to many physical and mental ailments.
Why getting out is important
No matter how productive your day seems like, but if you are continuously working like a robot, without taking a fun break then it’s of no use.
For instance, Imagine you are in a theatre, watching a really good, 3-hour long movie—but there’s no interval! You will see, that after a while, the same movie will start to feel boring to you. The comfortable seat will no longer be comfortable and all this will lead to frustration. And, this is exactly what life feels like without a break.
When you take a break and go outside, you get a refreshing new perspective about your life. Your boring job will begin to feel like an exciting hobby. Your mental and physical health will improve. Finally, your social life will get better.
How to have fun
When you are at home the possibilities for having fun are limited. Besides watching TV and playing games on your XBOX there isn’t much you can do for a great time.
The real fun starts when you step outside, even for a ten-minute break.
For starters, you can arrange a family picnic, which is one of the most popular outdoor activities. Not only is it a great way to reconnect with your family, but it’s also amazing for your mental health.
Outdoor activities that involve physical exercises like football, tennis or a friendly cricket match are amazing after a long and stressful workday.
The outside world has so much to offer, and by shutting yourself inside you are missing out on a lot of amazing things. So don’t wait, and go outside, because life is a movie and every movie needs its interval.
