Hard work is necessary to achieve our goals in life, but concentration on work alone with no recreation tends to make a person dull, bored and unsociable. The mind’s constitution is such that it can work for a long time, with no breaks or time for extracurricular activities. But at the same time, proper relaxation is absolutely necessary to keep it from getting overtaxed. An overtaxed mind loses all social spirit making the personality dull. Often children are made to study their lessons continuously so as to get good results in examinations, but this rather makes a child super smart with no social skills. That is why most schools stress extracurricular activities in school routine, most kids spend some part of their time video gaming or engaging in sporting activities to give them a break from school work. A balanced scheme of work and recreation is the proper way to keep the mind in trim shape. This is especially very important in the case of children because it is the age when the personality of the child is being developed. In short, work with no recreation will make Jack a dull boy. On the other hand, a combination of work with recreation will make him a properly balanced person.
