7 Productive Things You Can Do Literally Right Now
Start writing a post

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.

Go running


Running has many benefits. Even if you start with walking, it's better than being idol.

Drink Water


You are literally about 70% water. Your body needs it for everything that you do. You'll feel more rested and have better concentration rates if you're better hydrated. Also, those pimples you have are no match for daily cups of water.

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?"

Reconnect with Someone


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.

Delete Clutter from your Phone


I'm sure we all know someone with way too many pictures and screen shots that they don't need. Or maybe we know a person whose phone is loaded with apps the never use. And yes, that person is always us. Clean up your phone.

Start a New Netflix Show


We all have a moment to spare for a good Netflix show that will make us laugh, tug at our heartstrings, or teach us something we don't realize we needed to know. Here is a good list of critically acclaimed shows.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
