Reality Check Yall: Last year around this time we spent A LOT of time in the house. Bars were closing, social distancing rules spread fast, and we all became bored and bothered. Even if you’re a total hermit like me, you can still run out of productive things to do. What I mean by productive is doing something OTHER THAN mindlessly scrolling through social media feeds.
So here's a list of 20 productive things to pass any extra time! Now, remember, when I say be productive doesn’t necessarily mean doing work, but simply put, doing things that have a much more positive impact on your well-being. Scrolling through Instagram or Tik Tok for hours really can affect your sleeping pattern guys!
Watch inspiring shows or documentaries on Netflix or Youtube.
It's almost like choosing to read a book because you will learn something.
Your mind is focused on the show and not a scattered news feed.
Go through the App Store and look for cool apps
Back up your laptop and phone
Give yourself a manicure!
Clip them, smooth out the nail with a file, wash them and oil your cuticles!
Give yourself a spa day
Write or journal (we have a journal for you to start out with)
Declutter old files on your computer
Go through your downloads folder and trash items you no longer use
Go to those folders you created but do not use and delete them; makes more room for a faster PC!
Declutter photos on your phone and computer
No matter if you're an Android or iPhone, your phone can tell you which files on your device haven't been used in more than 6 months- back them up in your cloud (if need them) and delete them!
Choose pictures you want to print (and print them!)
Go through old family photo albums
For online photo albums, go through them, update tags & captions (if needed)
For photobooks in your house, make sure they are not sticking together! You can also take photos of them with your phone and add them to your cloud!
Start a manifestation journal (again, we have just the journal for you!)
Make a scrapbook journal with souvenirs from trips, concerts, etc.
To find these, you might actually have to clean out a closet of shoebox first but wherever they are, get creative and give them some razzle-dazzle
