I have realized that I have a lot of spare time on my hands in between classes, work and a healthy social life. I found some things that people can do in this time to be more productive, creative or just something to do if you really have no plans.
The first thing that I am going to cover are things you can do in your free time to help you be more productive in the future. Organizing a certain thing like a backpack, shelves or even your closet can make your other days go a lot more efficiently.
Another thing you can do in your free time to make yourself more productive is to write down your plans for the week/month in a planner, so you can always remember what you have to do. Last but not least, you can begin writing ideas in a journal about certain interests you have, and that way, if you ever need an idea there is already a list.
The next thing I often catch myself doing a lot when I have nothing to do is being creative. Something I do is paint in my free time. Canvases are at Dollar Tree and there is 55 cent paint at Walmart. If you aren’t into painting, you can always find a cheap sketchbook and begin drawing things that interest you. Finally, another thing that you can do to be creative in your spare time is editing pictures or videos.
The final things are random things I find my mind slipping to when I am bored and have nothing to do. One thing that you can do is find a TV show or movie that you and your friends can watch together as a group.
Another thing you can do is take up a new talent. The options are endless: juggling, tennis or making YouTube videos. The last thing you could do when you have nothing to do is go on social media and find local places you and your friends can go to the next time you hang out!
