Activity is a concept that comes from the Latin word activĭtas. This term is the result of the sum of three clearly differentiated components such as the following:
– “Actus”, which can be translated as “carried out”.
– ”- ivo”, which is used to indicate an active or passive relationship.
-The suffix “-dad”, which is used to indicate “quality”.
These are the actions that an individual or an institution develops on a daily basis, as part of their obligations, tasks or functions.
For example: “My activity in the company consists of checking the machines to carry out preventive maintenance and repairing those that are not working correctly”, “Tomorrow the teacher will tell us what activity we will have to carry out in the Radio Workshop”, “Due to a strike, next Tuesday there will be no banking activity ”.

The agriculture in this context, is an economic activity. This activity is classified as primary, since it is limited to extracting natural resources (planting and harvesting corn, to name a possibility). A secondary economic activity is one destined to the modification of natural resources (such as processing corn to commercialize it as canned food). In the case of services, they are classified as tertiary economic activities (they do not produce or sell physical goods: the Internet connection service, the hotel industry, etc.).
At a general level, the notion of activity refers to the movement, the task or the process linked to a certain sector or area. Thus, one can speak of labor activity, volcanic activity, physical activity, cultural activities and many others.

Thus, for example, in this category we come across cultural or hiking routes, bicycle rides, sports such as climbing or mountaineering, dining in restaurants, spa sessions, theater, cinema…
In addition there is also what we know as paranormal activity. Under this denomination we come across what are phenomena that have to do with ghosts, spirits, specters and other elements that escape all reason. Precisely in this sense we must highlight the existence of a film entitled “Paranormal Activity”.
