Indoor Games vs Outdoors Games

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

We all know with the advent of many technological appliances such as iPad and phones, there has been a major decline in the gaming sector. This has been particularly saddening because in recent times children do not realize the importance of such games and the emotions attached to family game times. This article will act as an effort to move you out of the activity slump.

It is extremely necessary to have family time with you once or now to ensure that everyone from the family gets in together and experiences the joy of having each other. This is not only important for young minds to experience but is also necessary to ensure that they learn the value of such interaction. Indoor games include scrabble, carrom, cards, and UNO. You would have experienced the joy of playing with your family once in your lifetime. Scrabble is a really fun game as it allows you to not only have fun but also aids in good learning. You learn new words, new meanings, and even new definitions. ONO and monopoly are other games that are frequently played and are known to be experienced by people who are more business inclined.

However, indoor games can never compete with outdoor games. Outdoor games are known to indulge you in an experience of their own. You explore the world on your own terms: the grass, the air, and even the environment. Playing outside gives the serotonin that you never expected to ever get. It is therefore highly recommended that you play with your children outside to make them learn and grow in an environment that greatly adds to their growth. Outdoor games include cricket, swimming, basketball, tennis, and hockey. It is up to you which games you prefer, but give a chance to each one of these.
