7 Productive Things You Can Do Literally Right Now

We've all have a few hours where nothing was urgent. Maybe we spent it watching Netflix, shopping online, on Youtube, or even scrolling mindlessly through our social media. There are things that we can do in our spare time that better us and -news flash- not all of them are boring.

Start on your next week's homework.


You have a syllabi from each class. You know what's next. Get started on it.

Increase your Vocabulary


This is not to impress anyone. This is just to contribute to your own personal evolution. Learning new words could help your essays or help you communicate in a professional setting better. At the very least, it'll stop those moments where you're asking yourself "What's the word?"

Is there a good friend in your life that you just haven't spoken to in a while? Maybe you live too far way to go meet with them, but having a phone conversation could brighten their week as much as it would your own.
