For this paper, you will utilize a specific time period (minimum of three hours), assigned to experience a
period of pure leisure. During this time you will participate in a non-obligated leisure based activity that
fully defines the true meaning of leisure.
After the experience you will write a 4 page paper that describes the activity, identifies your own
definition of leisure, incorporates theoretical concepts of leisure and how they apply to both you and
I encourage you to do something that is not your typical activity (video games, napping, watching TR or
movies). Go out and do something new and different. Truly engage yourself in an activity that gives you
the true sense of leisure.
Here are the theories that must be incorporated in the writing:
Anti- Structure: To Turner, leisure is the ritual that takes us outside everyday life. It does this by being
antagonistic to everyday experiences. That is, they are “anti,” or opposite, structure. It’s easy to see the
usefulness of this theory in explaining vacations and media-based forms of entertainment as these
leisure situations have their own distinct realities for the express purpose of being removed from
Self-As-Entertainment: It focuses on answering questions about leisure choices based on our
personality. Self-as-entertainment reflects the capacity of people to fill their free time with activities
that are personally satisfying and involving. People with the self-as-entertainment personality type are
never bored in leisure. They achieve this in three possible ways: by the sheer perception that they are in
control of how and what they do in their free time (self), by being able to use their mind through their
own imagination and escape to fantasy to fill free time (mind play), or by going places and seeking out
other people to share experiences (environment).
Flow: to describe becoming so involved in some activity that nothing else seems to matter. In other
words, flow is experienced as a loss of self-consciousness, a merging of action and awareness, a sense of
being in control, and an altered sense of time. It is intrinsically motivating and a balance between
perceived challenges and perceived skills.
Freedom of Choice and Intrinsic Reward: in order for a leisure experience to occur, an individual must
perceive that his or her participation is freely chosen and that the benefits of participating are derived
from factors intrinsic to the activity.
