Significance of Recréation from Social Perspective: A Review of Qualitative Studies
Qualitative research may be able to provide an answer as to why people take part in various sports, physical education and recreational activities. This paper firstly aimed to signify the vitality and importance of recreation from sociological perspective by systematically examining various qualitative research studies regarding the effectiveness of participation in recreation solely from social perspective. Secondly, the information arising from the systematic review has been used to convince and motivate the people towards active participation in recreational activities. On the bases of brief discussions, the researcher concluded that enhanced recreation participation is considered as an appropriate measure for the development and promotion of appropriate social qualities like social cohesion, group dynamic and also helps in controlling criminal offensiveness and prevalence of negative thinking. Consequently, it is recommended that participation in recreational activities is advocated as a form of leisure time, in an effort not only to improve physical health in relation to such matters as the obesity crisis, but also to enhance social health outcomes.
