15 FUN THINGS YOU CAN DO ALONE

Are you a proud introvert? Lots of people enjoy spending time in their own company, but sometimes they can run out of things to do.

If you can relate to this, don’t worry; here are 15 fun things you can do alone – and they are all free!

 

  1. Learn some yoga poses. Yoga is great for your muscles, and it can be a great way to de-stress after a tough day. Look on Youtube to find some poses for beginners.
  2. Find a new podcast series to start listening to.
  3. Learn to cook a meal you love, but don’t know how to make.
  4. Start a blog about something that interests you – although I’m guessing that most people who are reading this already have!
  5. Take a free online class and learn something new. There are lots of interesting free classes, from Physics to kickboxing to baking.
  6. Teach yourself to convincingly fake an accent. I recommend Australian or Irish.
  7. Explore the nature in your area and find your favorite place.
  8. Paint a self-portrait.
  9. Listen to your favorite album.
  10. Start writing in a journal. You don’t have to write long entries – just write a few notes for each day. It will be a really interesting read in the future.
  11. Start to build a family tree that you can show to your siblings and parents.
  12. Get your bills and finances in order. Okay, I lied – this one isn’t fun, but it is a productive way to spend your time.
  13. Rearrange a room in your house.
  14. Find an interesting blog and read it from start to finish.
  15. Make some new music playlists.

10 PRODUCTIVE THINGS YOU CAN DO IN YOUR FREE TIME

If you have a big chunk of free time, it is best to spend it with your friends or family, relaxing and enjoying yourself. However, if you only have a couple of minutes or quarter of an hour, it is often more useful to do a little productive task to make your life easier.

Here are 10 productive ways to fill a spare five minutes!

 

  1. Use the time to clear out your inbox and respond to any important emails.
  2. Do you have a friend or a co-worker that you need to speak to? Use this as a chance to pick up the phone and get the job done. You can do this wherever you are (if you have your phone!)
  3. If your desk is covered in junk and paper, spend a few minutes throwing away the rubbish and filing the important things. It will make the rest of your working day much more pleasant, and it will be easier for you to stay focused.
  4. Lots of people fall behind on their finances, but you can spend your free time paying a bill or making a note of a transaction. You’ll thank yourself later for this one!
  5. Back up your favorite photographs of you with your friends and family. It’s always good to have a back-up copy, and you can email a copy to the other people in the photograph.
  6. Network with your co-workers by contacting them with a question, or a follow-up email. This can really benefit your working relationships!
  7. Exercise. Do some jumping jacks, sit ups or push ups for a few minutes to get your heart racing.
  8. Stretch. Sitting at a desk all day can be really bad for your back, so do a few quick stretches while breathing slowly. This will relax your muscles and your mind.
  9. Become an expert. Do you love learning about steam trains, or are you fascinated by World War II? Learn everything you possibly can about your passion so that you’re an expert on the topic!
  10. Start a to-read collection. Bookmark webpages that you want to read later, or buy a magazine or a book that you can read later.
