The modern definition of enjoying includes letting your hair down, forgetting your senses, and living the moment. However, it is the canned and fast food culture which is the culprit for increased obesity in the world.
Today, the Internet rules our lives. However, too much of anything is certainly bad. While these days the youth have many more facilities than earlier generations, cut-throat competition is making them seek enjoyment in negative modes.
Partying is considered as a must for every occasion. Youngsters should remember that ‘Speed Thrills, but Also Kills’.
Today’s youth are almost addicted to video games. Internet: The King of All Entertainment Sources
‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’. Today, almost no office can run without the Internet. Nothing particularly wrong with this, as long as you do not cause any nuisance to anybody else. Though a traditional media of entertainment, movies are going to stick on for all generations to come. However, youngsters today also seeks thrill and adventure. Online dating is not bad per se, yet, one should not forget the risks of disclosing your personal details to an unidentified person or stranger.
Giving time to your hobby, or reading books for pleasure, have reduced as a form of enjoyment today. This is also the reason why sports, these days, are so highly commercialized, with the real spirit of sportsmanship going for a toss.
Now, this is enjoyment for those who love experiencing thrill. But today, thanks to technology and communication, the modes of entertainment have multiplied like never before. But loud music is not recommended, since it can damage our hearing. Food also serves as a comfort many times, and any achievement or a happy moment calls for a visit to a restaurant. However, some movies can have a negative impact on the minds of youngsters, who fail to understand that, in the end, it is mostly fiction.
Watching a game with friends is one of the greatest entertainment sources around. Traveling is indeed a good source of enjoyment, a break from mundane life. A brisk walk, a chat with neighbors, gardening, reading books, or nurturing a hobby, have almost become redundant today.
The fast food culture is one of the biggest menaces these days. Clubbing and nightlife has become an important part of today’s lifestyle. True, technology is indeed awesome, and the designers out there who make these games are doing a fabulous job. With increased stress, we all want to seek solace somewhere. Sadly, partying, drinking, smoking, drugs, etc., has increased in the life of youth these days. Virtual life can be so addictive, that sometimes they tend to forget to breathe fresh air itself. Again, food is a mode of celebration in all cultures. Yet, the youth today tend to forget the importance of living out in the ‘real world’. Of course, with so many sports channels to surf through, this task has just become easier. However, heavy drinking will abuse your body in the long run. However, as generations change, media of entertainment also change. With the increased use of the Internet, youngsters today no longer want to go out from the confines of their rooms under the bright sunshine. Also, there are many cases of youth involved in drinking and driving, a dangerous preposition indeed.
Yet, what do you mean by enjoyment? What is your concept of enjoyment? Of course, we seek pleasure in different activities, and the definition of enjoyment is different for everyone. With the improvement in the quality of movies, technology, etc., this is indeed one of the biggest sources of entertainment for everyone. Watching movies is one of the favorite pass times of almost everyone today. While obsession with anything is an issue, the youth today are using it as an escape route from their problems.
Playing Video Games
Well, this is one form of de-stressing for many out there. It is indeed a powerful medium to reach millions in a fraction of a second.
Shopping is considered to be a stress-buster by many, and being fashionable is considered a minimal requirement. We see many teenagers who have been victims of drug obsession. Today’s youth relies a lot on the Internet. This is certainly a negative impact of today’s stress and competition.
There are increasing number of youngsters who engage in watching porn.
Online dating has become one of the latest fad. Sometimes, the virtual world is used as an escape route from one’s problems.
This is the ruler of all sources of entertainment. The concepts of enjoyment for youth has changed a lot due to the aforesaid reasons. For today’s youth, it is simply ‘Work Hard, Party Harder’. Scuba diving, skydiving, parachute-riding, safari expedition, skiing, etc. – these days everyone wants to have some fun-filled action in their lives.
Listening to Music
Adventure and Traveling
We all have our headphones continuously plugged into our ears. In this competitive world, we all have to slog hard to make our living. We all are dependent on the Internet, not only for knowledge, but also for entertainment. Gone are those days when they preferred going outdoors for a game. Also, nightlife today is mostly filled with drugs, drinking, and smoking.
Eating at Restaurants. Smoking may be taken up due to peer pressure. We have more options on the television today, more movie theaters, all thanks to the growing entertainment and media industry. In earlier times, there were very limited sources of enjoyment, hence, meeting family and friends, playing indoor and outdoor games, planning a picnic, etc., were the common sources of enjoyment. Be it for knowledge or entertainment, its certainly at the top in the list of enjoyment. In addendum, the Internet has created a revolution in our lives.
Movies are a must-plan on almost every weekend. Of course, music is the biggest stress-buster. Of course, some do end up in meeting the soulmates of their lives. The only concern is that, they should follow all the safety precautions before engaging in this kind of sport. Be it watching videos on YouTube, spending time on social networking sites, shopping, dating, or simply surfing the Internet, you never know how you end up spending hours on your laptop/smartphone. Yet, they tend to forget that staying up late is unhealthy. Everyone is obsessed with fashion, and being outdated in your dressing style is looked down by almost everyone.
Gambling is also considered as enjoyment by many. Though most forms of betting are illegal in many parts of the world, sports-betting is particularly common among youth.
Any occasion calls for alcohol these days. On the other hand, it is equally important that we avoid listening to music while driving (earphones, headphones).
Smoking and intake of drugs is also considered as ‘enjoyment’ by many youth today. It is completely alright if it is done in moderation. The entertainment and enjoyment preserved for our weekends are the biggest sources of stress-busters for us
