Some people think that it is important to use leisure time for activities that improve the mind, such as reading and doing word puzzles. Other people feel that it is important to rest the mind during leisure time. Discuss both views and give your own opinion. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

There are a lot of activities created to train and improve your
mind
,
such
as word puzzles, riddles,
memory
games or the more common reading. Everyone in their life has experimented some of these exercises, that usually combine leisure and utility, and for some people it has actually become a hobby or a way to spend their free
time
. Many scientists studied how
mind
exercises can help our mental abilities. It is a well known fact that,
for example
, doing word puzzles and
memory
games can help to keep our
memory
elastic and trained and allow to remember the words and information that were no longer used.
This
is especially important for older people or people who suffer from dementia, who are more exposed to
memory
loss, because it can help them to maintain their
memory
trained. For these reasons it seems to me that it is important to spend part of our free
time
to do these exercises, since they can create so many positive outcomes and
nevertheless
represent a source of entertainment.
In contrast
with
this
point of view, there is the importance of leaving some
time
to keep our
mind
completely clean and rested. It is true that sleeping allows our brain to rest and recharge our body and
mind
with new energy, but during the day it is
also
necessary to leave space for leisure activities that use passive abilities of our
mind
, like listening to music, watch a movie or go outside for a walk to clean our thoughts. These activities do not require any active ability, like focusing, but it is more like a passive reception of what you are doing or seeing.
Furthermore
, especially after a long day of work where you use a lot your brain qualities, at some point during the day your
mind
is physically incapable to do more mental work if it isn’t allowed to rest. To sum up, mental exercises are fundamental to keep our
mind qualities
Accept comma addition
mind, qualities
fresh,
in particular
when we get old or we start to have
memory
issues.
However
, it is important to not stress to much our brain and leave it some
time
to rest by doing simple but leisure activities that do not require much work for our
mind
.
