Do you like to sprounge

When I come across a word that is new to me I often write it down on a scrap of paper or put it on the memo function on my mobile. The trouble with these words is that my friends may not know what I am talking about if I use the words in conversation.

The other day I came across sprounge. I looked up Urban Dictionary and found the meaning, 'doing nothing, maybe just sitting at home and watching tv or surfing the web. In a lazy mood.'

In these times when many people feel we should all be setting goals, striving to improve ourselves and learning or doing something all the time, admitting you like to sprounge could get a negative reaction.

However, it is beneficial to spend some time, no, not all of your time, but some of your time sprounging.

If you are really doing nothing, not even watching TV or looking at the internet, you are giving your brain time to relax. If you just use the time sprounging to unwind it provides an opportunity for your brain to 'reset'.

Sprounging can even help your creativity because when you are relaxed sometimes that is when great ideas just pop up seemingly from nowhere. At other times one finds the answer to a problem that has been bugging one for some time.

A bit of sprounging in front of the telly or the internet never hurt anyone. A day now and then doing nothing in particular, perhaps on your own looking at the garden or watching the clouds, can have benefits as a contrast to your usual busy life. However, it is important to avoid too much sprounging so you don't get bored. A balance of work, physical activity, mental stimulation, time socialising and time alone is needed for optimum mental and physical health.
