Nowadays a lot of people spend too much time on their work. They are so busy that they hardly have time to relax. Making money is not the only purpose in life.

People should spend more time with their family and friends. They should also have time to relax.

Playing games, going to the cinema and going out with your friends are good ways to relax.

Going on a hike and enjoying fresh air is another way to de-stress.

We can also visit different cities and experience different cultures.

There are many ways to relax. We all need to relax from time to time. We should enjoy life and de-stress. That way, we can have a better relationship with our family.

I don't think making a lot of money can bring happiness, especially if you don't have time to enjoy family life.

Thanks for your letter, Shaili. You're right: a lot of people, especially in Hong Kong, focus too much on making money and spending time at work.

As a result, they are too tired after work to do anything except go to sleep. They ignore their family and friends.

If we don't spend time with our loved ones, we will feel lonely and depressed.

Sharing our problems and worries with others is important. It helps beat stress.

Regular exercise and relaxing activities are also crucial to staying healthy and happy. There are lots of fun leisure activities in Hong Kong. It's also easy to go to the mainland or southeast Asia for a break.

If we are relaxed and well-rested, we will be able to work more efficiently and leave work earlier to do something we enjoy with the people we love.
