ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY

Concentration on work alone with no enjoyment makes a person dull and unsociable. The mind constitution is such that it can be made to work for a long time. At the same time, proper relaxation is neces­sary for keeping it from getting overworked. An overworked mind losses all social spirit making the personality dull. A relaxed mind is could make wonders. It retrieves all its capacities for absorption of knowl­edge after proper recreation. Work and recreation in a balanced form is the proper way to keep the mind trim. This is very important in the case of children because it is the age when the personality of the child is being moulded. In short, work with no recreation makes us ill-tempered.
