Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you had a great weekend. Today I am going to talk about something we all have, which is down time. Even if you are super busy all the time, there are still times in your day when you are waiting for something or just have some time to kill. Whether it’s sitting in traffic, waiting in line at the grocery store, or waiting for dinner to finish cooking, we all have down time at some point where we are just waiting. So today I thought I would share with you some of my favorite ways to kill time simply because I thought it might be fun!
Play a game.
I love games. Board games, card games, computer games, all the games. I don’t really play video games, but basically any other kind of game I’m down to play. So when I have some down time I can sometimes be found playing a game, usually on my phone. Facebook has all kinds of games and sometimes I get really into it. But it really does help the time go by faster and I have a ton of fun in the meantime. Playing games is one of my absolute favorite things to do.
Watch YouTube/TikTok Videos.
When I have down time most of the time I am watching YouTube. However, I recently got really into TikTok. I don’t make videos or anything, but I really love watching other people. But when I have down time I really like to watch videos. It helps me stay connected with other people and I really love supporting content that other people make on various platforms. I also have tons of blogs that I love to stay up-to-date on. But you can usually find me watching YouTube videos or on TikTok.
I don’t watch a ton of TV anymore, but I do have a few shows that I love. You guys know I went through my New Girl phase where I had it on all day everyday. But I have kind of fallen out of that this month. But when I have a significant amount of down time I will watch a few episodes of a show and just relax and unwind. I mostly do this before I go to bed. I’m not always super tired right when I get into bed so I sometimes watch TV to relax and escape for a bit.
I love reading and I have so many books that I need to read and finish reading. So I try to make sure if I have a book around when I have down time that I am reading, even if it’s just a few pages. It just gets me that much closer to my goal and helps me get a little further ahead. I also find reading super inspiring and motivational, so it really helps keep me going if I’ve hit a slump in my day or need a pick me up. It’s also just really enjoyable and a great learning experience at the same time.
Work on content.
I know what you’re thinking. “How can it be considered down time if you are working?” Well, when I have down time from other things that I am doing, I sometimes like to brainstorm ideas. I also get on social media and interact with you guys. I talk out ideas with people. I plan out things I want to work on in the future. Working on content can happen in a variety of ways and sometimes it’s just what I want to do. So when I have some down time I will flesh out some ideas or interact with you guys on social media.
