Typically, when people want to have some down time, they think of recreational activities. The idea of leisure time is generally not about going on a personal retreat. That is more geared towards spiritual refreshment. It’s more about having some fun in a relaxed atmosphere and best of course with other people. Who best to hang out with - a friend(s) of course! And why do we think friends when we think of fun? Because a friend is that person you can talk with and play with. A person you can share your thoughts with and do activities together with.
