Leisure means different things to different people. Some people like to do sports or hobbies. Other people think of leisure as free time spent away from chores, work, school, or other obligations.
Leisure can be active or passive. It can be physical (like sports or running) or an activity like reading a book or working in the garden. It can be something you do with other people or on your own. If it's something healthy you like to do and it makes you feel good, it's leisure.
Making changes can be hard. You might need time to figure out what you like to do best. It might take a while before you feel like you fit into a clean and sober world. However, it will get easier with time.
