Word ‘recreation’ stems from the Latin recreatio, ‘restoration to health’
Recreation is viewed as a life-enhancing experience, which is the outcome of freely chosen activity

Heightened or reduced sensitivity to temperature, color and smell
Anticipation and Expectation
Escape: Getting away from it all
Time distortion: "time stood still", an hour seemed like a minute
Novelty: The sense of 'for the first time' Brings freshness and uniqueness
