Being with family and investing more time in 'healthy leisure' are two of the best ways of finding happiness in life, Pope Francis has revealed.
During his conversation with Argentinian weekly "Viva" to commemorate the anniversary of his early pontificate, the 77-year-old pope of the Catholic Church said that one should let everyone be themselves and it's the first step peace and happiness, the Huffington Post reported.
AdvertisementHe said that people should give themselves tirelessly to others, and if one gets tired, one runs the risk of being egoistic and stagnant water is the first to be corrupted and people should also walk softly.
According to Pope Francis, one should be available to their kids and family, and even though consumerism has led to the anxiety of losing, which has pushed people to spend less time at home and more time pursuing wealth, people should invest more time in "healthy leisure".
He added that people should spend their Sundays or any other day of rest with their family, work toward empowering young people, care for the environment, move on after negative experiences, respect others' opinions and actively strive for peace.
