Today's era is the era of consumerism driven by technology. It has made human beings very materialistic. To fulfill these materialistic needs, we work day and night like a machine. This means less leisure time with family, friends and society. Lack of investment of time and energy in nurturing personal, family and social life can lead, and in many cases, have led to negative outcomes. At personal level, mental and physical well-being is affected. Lack of leisure time can lead to stress and unhealthy lifestyle which in long term can give rise to serious conditions like depression, hyper tension, and heart stroke. The family is affected as well. Lack of engagement between spouses can lead to disintegration and break-down of family structure. This has serious consequences for children within the family.This leads us to think about nature of development. Economic as well as social development is important for development and happiness of individual, family, and the society.In this research paper, we assess the relationship between leisure time and social development. This research paper is based on secondary sources.
