Psychology of Leisure
Life in the 21st century consists of a never-ending hustle and bustle with large to-do lists and an overwhelming feeling of not enough time to complete the ever growing list. Days drag on and thoughts drift to a longing for "just 15 minutes of peace and quiet." Our guest, Mark Widmer, has taken a look at these 15 minutes and what we do with them when we get them. Too many of us, too often, have no idea how we're really spending our leisure time, and whether or not our leisure activities are really quenching the thirst for a break. Take a moment, relax, and discover something about the psychology of your own leisure.—Original airdate: 10/8/2008
