A fundamental aspect of man is to have a clear purpose/goal in life in which to aim at. It is this purpose that ultimately leads man on a journe towards what is considered "the good life". The question is then, what is it that ultimately fulfills man? What is it that man is directed towards? What is "the good life"? Each man has his own purpose or actualization of fulfillment to fit his particular aims, but most will agree that the final good in life is having good health, wealth, family and friends. Having good health requires a balance. Man exhausts his supply of vitality working for a living. Therefore in order to maintain a healthful equalibrium, he must take time out periodically from the rigors of everyday living for recreational pursuits.
