DIY is one example of a home - based leisure activity. Analyse why some people prefer home-based leisure activities to other types of leisure activity

Stacey Dutch

Firstly home based leisure caters for everyone e.g. disabled people who can't get out so they could spend time on the computer playing games. Furthermore people might decide to do gardening as their leisure activity as it will be in the fresh air, cost free and you can relax and enjoy it at the same time. Also people might not have the money to do leisure activities so the decide to do home based leisure as normally iti s cost free. Also e.g. playing on a computer or reding does not cost anything and can be done any time of year. Also with doing home based leisure you are very flexivle as it is not time consuming. Also there is a range of activities that can e done at any time, you can read as and when you feel like it for as long as you want. Whereas if you chose swimming as your leisure activity, the swimming pool might close before you got home from work. This is why people prefer to do home based leisure rather than leisure activities outside the home.
