Life is very busy nowadays, especially the life of miners. That is why the little leisure time that they get should be used productively. Leisure time is defined as the time of freedom from one’s responsibilities. Every individual requires it to balance stress caused by the work life as it helps a person to relax and energize. The activities one can carry out at his or her leisure time are dependent on a number of factors which include: age, gender, marital status, family background, etc.

How Can Miners Spend Their Leisure Time?

Some of the activities that miners can enjoy in their leisure time are as follows:

Gardening

Enjoying Mother Nature in your leisure time is one of the best activities. While using your time to grow plants, you not only get closer to nature but if you use your skills to grow edibles, you can have an all-time access to fresh and organic vegetables and fruits. Apart from this, you can indulge in different projects to beautify your front or backyard and have a scenic view from your windows.

Painting/sketching

Painting and sketching are one of the most effective ways to express yourself and get rid of the frustration and anxiety that constant work causes. These two activities come under the most inexpensive yet perfectly relaxing ways to spend leisure time.

Cooking

Nowadays, life is so busy that we all prefer buying processed and canned foods. It is very convenient and easy, but at the same time, it is not healthy at all. During the free time, one can indulge in cooking and baking. There is something spiritual about making your own food from the very basic step. It not only helps you relax, but you also know whatever goes into the food you eat. Hence, resulting in a healthy lifestyle.

Cycling

Exploring new places in the urban or suburban areas near to your house is one of the best ways to spend leisure time. Moreover, using a bicycle to can be of even more benefit as it helps exercise both the upper body as well as the lower body. You also get to inhale fresh air which can help you release stress and anxiety that accumulates due to constant working in mines.

Apart from the conventional bike, electric bikes are gaining popularity among the bikers. Several models of these bikes are available, and a lot of benefits are seen in these as compared to conventional bicycles.

The electric bicycle is also called an E-bike or a booster back. It is similar to the conventional bike except that it has an electric engine that requires rechargeable batteries as a fuel. This bike can either be used to work on its own or to assist the biker in moving faster. It has the same structure as the conventional bike, i.e., the steering, breaks, and wheels but usually, the size of the frame is a little bigger to hide the engine underneath.

Some of the components that are only present in the electric bicycle and not in the conventional bicycle are:

  • Electric motor:

This is the basic feature of the electric bicycle which helps the bike to work on its own or assist the biker. These motors are different for various models and have features that are unique to each of them.

  • Battery:

The electric motor of the bicycle as the name suggests runs on electric power hence; it needs electricity and not combustible fuel. Therefore, rechargeable batteries are fit into the motor in order to enable it to work.

  • Controllers:

These are fit in the electric motor in order to control its speed.

  • Throttles:

These are for the electric motors that run on their own, not for assisting the biker. It is basically the on-off switch for the motor.
