How to use "Idleness" in context?

There is a lot of debate as to what is the root cause of idleness. Some believe that boredom is what leads people to not engage in stimulating activities, leading to inactivity. Others believe that the lack of intrinsic rewards in work, combined with the lack of autonomy and control that we experience in our jobs, is what causes people to become inactive. Whichever the case may be, the reality is that most of us spend too much of our time sitting in our own homes, instead of being out in the world enjoying the things that we love.
