    Stanley Parker defines leisure as a residual category of time: it is time left over after other obligations have been attended to. He distinguishes five aspects of people’s lives.

    • Work – time spent in paid employment

    • Work obligations – time taken up as a consequence of

    employment e.g. travel to and from work

    • Non-work obligations – activities including childcare and

    housework

    • Physiological needs – time spent engaged in eating, sleeping,

    washing etc

    • Leisure – the time left over
