This paper explains that without the enjoyment of entertainment during leisure time not only productivity but also longevity would decrease because stress levels would become out of control. Next, the author relates that entertainment leads to an increase in productivity, the fulfillment of certain desires and the development of ideas. However, the paper contends that there are people who do consider entertainment to be regressive and warn of individuals losing themselves within entertainment and destroying their brain.

From the Paper:

"Entertainment has long been regarded as a boob-tube. Yet, it can be very fundamental to the development of ideas. Without entertainment, once mind can effectively shut down. The ideas begin to cease and the flow stopped. Entertainment allows a sense of creation to move about. As a result, numerous solutions and ideas are created. It has been studied that approximately half of the discoveries made were done during a time of leisure, in which the discoverer was enjoying the tasks he was performing, which is called entertainment."
