Welcome back to the How To Series… today’s post is all about How To Enjoy Your Free-time. Free-time “the time you have in which you are not at work, haven’t planned an appointments or booked a gym class”. I’d describe my “Free-time” as in the evening after I’ve had dinner and completed any chores which need to be done.
We can often get caught up spending hours on our phones, scrolling through social media and not actually undertaking things which are ‘productive’. I am a victim of this… but it’s something I am working to improve! Especially when we finally get the keys to our new home.
Its important to take some time out from the hustle and bustle of work… it may be easier said than done it you are self employed! But I thought I’d share a few ways in which you can enjoy your free-time!
How to enjoy your Free-time
• Pick up a book
Reading is a great way to stimulate the brain and by taking your mind off of worries and troubles. Reading allows your to engage in the book/story and characters whilst developing skills along the way. Whether you decide to pick up a book to wind down of an evening or to read whilst your dinner is cooking, it all helps. I know I personally love engaging books, therefore I’ve tasked myself to start reading the Harry Potter series again!!
• Start a new hobby/ies
I am sure most of you reading this post are bloggers, therefore blogging is our hobby! But what’s stopping you putting your phone down for an hour and partaking in a new hobby? I’ve signed up to start netball… sports and PE is something I really miss about school. (Crazy I know!!) but I used to love playing football, netball, rounders and hockey. So I’ve decided I’d love to get back into it! I am on a waiting list for a local club, fingers crossed I receive an email soon.
What hobby would you love to start?
If you’re a blogger who is part of a local blogging group, I am sure you would be aware of blogging events! I love to attend blogging events, meeting new bloggers and networking with companies. Networking is a great way to build your blog and also to build relationships for future collaborations. So why not attend a local event to enable you to enjoy your free-time?
I’ve purposely left this point vague. You could be planning a upcoming holiday, your wedding or even planning a night out with the girls (or guys!). Planning is a great way to enjoy your free-time. It gives you something to look forward, gets you excited planning a event. But also takes your mind off worries and problems you maybe facing!
I love having events planned, whether it be a lunch with the girls, a weekend away or planning a nice sunny holiday abroad.
We all enjoy different things, some of you may find baking is something you enjoy undertaking in your free-time or maybe your adventurous and love to get out on your bike. May be make a list places you fancy going to, or events you’d love to attend over the summer.
I hope you enjoyed reading my How To Enjoy Your Free-time Post! Did you read my last How To Series Post?
