Several slogan similar to "healthy mind healthy body" are becoming more and more common lately. This slogan is all about having peaceful mind, taking a break from an ever changing world, and rest. Contrary to that, what some people called "grind culture" is also getting popular especially amongst the young adult generation where according to those who follow this lifestyle, they should use their leisure time to hone their mind and abilities by reading books, doing puzzles, and learning new skills.
While the focus of both sides are positive and mostly about achieving a better life condition, but someone might find one views more suitable than the other. It is important for someone to examine their own condition before choosing what to do with their free time. In my opinion, resting the mind during off time should be done by someone who spend the most of their day with some cerebral or emotional demanding activities. For example, an university student who is discipline and can makes the most out of his busy schedule should take relieve their mind completely during their leisure time to ensure their performance on their study schedule.
In contrast, for someone who already reached a certain proficiency related to the assigned tasks might find his daily activities boring and repetitive and most of the time, people who find themselves in this position are more likely to be the elderly. For this type of person, improving the mind during free time might be the best options. Not only it can entertain the brain, but it can also prevent the brain from getting detrimental effects.
