8 Ways To Be More Productive

8 Ways To Be More Productive

It's the summertime, and personally, I find myself with more time on my hands than I know what to do with. I check social media, again and again and again while watching the same show for hours on end. It gets extremely boring after a while, and I get nothing out of it. I know everyone out there find themselves doing the same, so here's some ideas to keep busy and off of social media.

1. Clean

I know, it sounds extremely boring but hear me out: whether it's your room or your car, blasting music while cleaning up goes by fast. The reward? Self satisfaction and a clear mind.

2. Read a book

Instead of watching TV until your mind melt out your ears, pick up a new book from your local Barnes and Noble or borrow from a friend. The beauty of a book is you can bring it with you, so you can read on the beach or cozy in bed.

3. Create something

Try out a new recipe you saw on Tasty. Craft something you saw on Pinterest. Get creative and have fun with it.

4. Exercise

Go to the gym, jog outside, walk your dog, start a pickup game. Being outside and active is fun, and it burns calories.

5. Learn something

Challenge yourself. Set out a new goal to learn something, like how to play an instrument, or how to speak another language. Why not, right?

6. Make plans

Make time for the people you love in your life. Whether it's a small as a game night or as cool as a theme park.

7. Go for a drive

Go run those errands you've been meaning to run. Go visit that person you said you'd visit, just go.

8. Get out of town

Go somewhere new. A different state, if you can. Get a new perspective of things. A change of pace is always refreshing.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate. Some religions like the Islam do not even celebrate Christmas and then you have others, the Buddhists, who use the holiday to practice their religion of spreading peace and goodwill. In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
