Leisure can be like a mirror that reflects the way we are expected to perform in professional working environments but also in many aspects of our daily lives. If we look at leisure, we see how much of it is part of an ethics of work and serves to fulfill a desire to be productive, and how many leisure activities are promoting self-discipline and self-improvement. But what if we counter this logic by considering laziness and idleness as subversive acts, as forms of resistance?
