Leisure time and leisure time activities are commonly used concepts and quality fulfilment of leisure time is considered desirable by the lay public. However, the terms semi-leisure and anti-leisure time are close to a particular group of experts. Although semi-leisure time activities are commonly realized, we do not just refer to them as semi-leisure time activities. For the elderly, however, they may have more benefits than leisure time activities, but it is necessary to understand the fundamental risk of becoming anti-leisure. The paper deals with both of the concepts above in the context of old age. It is written as a discussion paper and therefore asks questions raising polemics. The paper aims to describe the benefits of semi-leisure time for the elderly in the context of risks of anti-leisure. The title of the article is its goal.
