Welcome to “All Things Leisure”. I am a professor teaching and researching about recreation and leisure. For the past 20 years (yikes…hard to believe it’s been that long), I have been thinking about, learning about, and most recently, teaching about what leisure is, how it relates to various aspects of life (e.g., personal development, family life, work), and what roles it plays in the lives of various individuals (children and youth, women, families, and individuals with illness in particular). I’m looking forward to sharing ideas and research with those who want to spend some more time thinking about their leisure.
One of my favorite leisure activities involves travel and enjoying beaches and the ocean! The picture is of me enjoying some time on a beach near Liverpool, Nova Scotia in Canada. Not ideal beach weather that day, but we (my husband and I) didn’t let that deter us from enjoying it!
