In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, several countries around the world have been under lockdown since March 2020. Being under lockdown can put you under stress and can affect one’s mental health and a simple way to boost one’s mental health and overall emotional well-being is to carve out time for enjoyable things. One good way to cope with such is to indulge in leisure activities. Leisure as an activity involves the activities we participate in for reasons as diverse as relaxation, competitiveness, or creation, and may include pleasure reading, meditation, painting, and sports participation. To the body of knowledge, students, and educators, this study will be beneficial since it focuses on how leisure activities help Grade 12 students in DLSMSHSI cope up with their psychological stress during the COVID-19 lockdown period.
