Recreation is refreshment of one's body or mind. Recreation is often distinguished from leisure. Where leisure is, or ought to be, restful, recreation is refreshing and diverting.

Music and dance serve as recreation in many cultures, as do sports and hobbies and sometimes food and drink.

We sometimes use drugs as a form of recreation (see recreational drug use)--and, like dancing, sex, nudism, and other forms of recreation which many people treat as illicit.

The weekend is typically a time for recreation, perhaps (in Judeo-Christian and Muslim cultures) because the Sabbath falls on the weekend and the Sabbath is "the day of rest." Holidays are also a common time for recreation.
