Young people and free time

Young people today have a lot of free time. In your opinion, do they use this time well or do they waste it?

Do young people today use their free wisely? Or do many of them just waste it doing pointless activities? In this essay, I will discuss how most of the young people I know spend their free time.

Of course, many young people, just like many old people, waste their time. Some youngsters choose to sleep instead of getting up and being active. They get used to being lazy and the slightest effort is too much. Others are more active, but prefer to spend all their time in the mall or in the coffee shop, just watching girls or chatting with their friends. This if fine for a while, but it’s not very productive. Still others of course never leave the house and just sit around chatting on the internet or watching sports on television. It’s a lot easier to just sit at home and criticize your team than to get fit and take part, but that’s what many people prefer to do.

However, there are also many young people who are extremely active and productive. After all, most sport is played by young people, and stadiums are full of people supporting their favorite teams. Secondly, most young people are trying to create a good future for themselves. A lot of young people do extra courses or spend their time reading in order to do better in their studies. But the most important point is that young people are not very different from older people. Sometimes we all spend too long doing one thing, when we should try to have a balanced range of activities. All of us need to relax and have fun, and all of us, young and old, need to try new things and meet with friends and family.

In conclusion, it’s not really a question of age. Old and young people can choose to use their time well or to fritter it away. Hopefully we can all make choices that benefit us in the long run.

    in my book, today people have to work hard in order to live so they don’t have enough time to spare with their children and enjoy their life .in other words, they have to learn how to manage their time to spend

    You have really hit the point. We young people of today delights in investing our time in things that will not add to our tomorrow. We mostly waste precious time on unhealthy relationships and friendships. I wouldn’t have much to say about the old wasting their time because much may not depend on them like it would on the young man or woman. Another crucial area young people waste their time is on phone. Communications or interactions that will not yield any thing is what young people of today busily engage themselves in. One said thing about time is that, it is like a river in its youthful stage, you can’t the same place twice. I will you and myself to your our time as God expects of us and anyone else.

      Certainly,I don´t know how old are you,but I utterly agree with you.In fact,when I was younger I used to think similarly as today.The main reason is that it doesn´t exist as much technology as today and what is more the education that we received made us ,somehow, more and more responsible and think about the consequences of wasting time in frivolous things.Anyway,there are some exceptions,my older brothers were not as better as me,maybe because my mother was so much protective with them.
