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.
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.
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
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.
