Work hard, play hard;
You work hard for a living,
through physical and/or mental concentration.
You play hard to shrug off and forget,
through physical and/or mental exhilaration,
how hard you work for a living.

Love these short slogans, and I interpret it as if you work hard then you have the money to play hard too; travel, clubs, parties etc. My favourite is Sail Fast and Live Slow. So, in a way, it is the same thing but certainly sounds more relaxing than doing work to get to play. Love to sail but in honesty, you do have to work pretty hard to get to sail, or win the lottery! But seriously, this has in the past been a connotation of having a strong work ethic.

I've always defined it as - work hard in your day job do your very best THEN in your free time get out and enjoy yourself ....doesn't necessarily mean get ruined on drink could also mean get down the gym and work out really hard ....or play football or cycle or whatever but do it and make a difference!

Agreed, usually said by those who work as little as possible - but make a huge fuss about what they do manage to achieve, and then spend their leisure time off their faces on something or other.

It's the excuse given (usually by a man) to excuse bad behaviour, eg binge drinking.

Not difficult. Usually people mean that they work very hard and therefore, they enjoy pushing themselves in their leisure time, too. Sadly, it also often means that they drink a lot, rather than actual physical leisure activites.
