Things to do with your free time

What do you do when you suddenly find yourself with loads of free time? Aside allowing boredom take over?


For me, there is a whole lot to do and I will be sharing with you some of my favorite things to do and some others I plan to try out soon.


A Lot of these are self explanatory and for some I will add a bit of context.


Without further ado, let dive right it



Free time activities

1) Reading

OK, for some people reading does not sound like fun. Well, that may be because you have associated reading with school. More like, you read to get good grades. But reading can be fun.


Consider it a way to get into a world you haven’t been before. I have magically climbed mountains, jumped out from a plane, visited countless historic sites, all through the pages of a book.


If you have a problem with reading, you can start up by reading books with few chapters on any subject you consider interesting.


2) Watching a Documentary

Watching a movie, and watching a documentary are two different things. lets not start that argument, its too early.


3) Learn a new language

Want to impress that your foreign crush, you just might by learning a new language.


4) Watch YouTube

You will be surprised the amount of amazing information you will find on YouTube, ranging from educational, spiritual, entertainment, etc


5) Organize your space

You may be amazed the amount of space you have, if you just move a few of the items you already own around. Or maybe you will just find that one pair of sock that has been missing for a while now.


6) Create vision boards

The future is important and we need to plan for it. Although life can be so unpredictable, it does not stop us from planning. One way to do this is to create a vision board, which is a pictorial representation of your dreams and goals.


7) Learn a new skill

The world has gone digital, and learning a new skill can now be done right in the comfort of your home.

  1. I appreciate you saying that watching YouTube when you are bored is a great idea because there is plenty of amazing information available to you. My husband and I often find ourselves bored on the weekends when we don’t have any set plans and don’t know what to do. We will have to find some cool and interesting videos to watch when we find ourselves in those boring situations.
