I believe a combination of both approaches is suitable for a person to relax and stay healthy. (The question no where states: Discuss both views. You have to mention your opinion in the introduction and discuss it.)

Please merge it with the previous sentence.). Therefore, 9-5 (This makes little sense: Therefore, people who work from 9 am to 5 pm prefer ……) people prefer staying at home and getting a proper sleep after work as it recharges them. For example, (this is not an example. This is an explanation of the idea mentioned above.

Please read carefully.) people who have enormous work load cannot think about going outside and they play to stay relaxed. (Combining the two sentences: Therefore, people who work from 9 am to 5 pm and have enormous work pressure prefer stying home and getting proper sleep after work as it recharges them.) They generally watch TV after going home or sit with a colleague friend after work to take rest, .
