WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?

8/22/2021


 

Hi lovely people!

My question for you today is - what do you do in your free time and what do you do to relax? We live in a very stressful time, and it's important to find some time to unwind after a long day at work or on weekends. There are so many easy, fun, and cheap ways you can entertain yourself at home or even with your friends. 

Having fun or relaxing in your free time doesn't have to be a super elaborate event! Today I will share some of my favorite activities I like to do in my free time. It's all about creativity and combining fun activities with those that are more relaxing and restore your mental and physical health.


Yoga & meditation

Ever since I discovered yoga and tried practicing it, I never looked back. Yoga is so beneficial for us - both physically and mentally. It improves your posture, reduces back pain, makes you more flexible, more serene, and just in better shape altogether. In my opinion, it goes hand in hand with meditation. If you practice it regularly, you will definitely see results after a period of time.


Online games

I'm not someone who is super into gaming generally, but there are certain types of games I really enjoy and play quite regularly. When I like a specific game, it's so easy for me to get completely hooked on it!
When I was a kid, I used to play games on Play Station a lot, but these days I mostly find free games online to play, like for example, Plays.org. These types of games are so accessible, and the best thing is you have hundreds of games to choose from, so you are bound to find something for yourself.

I generally really like classic arcade games, so it's no wonder I've been playing this game called Pac Rat a lot recently! This game is obviously inspired by the famous Pac Man, but in this case, you have to eat all the cheese and avoid the cats. How fun is that?! It's such a simple game, but also so fun, and it just works. No wonder this type of game has been so popular for such a long time!



Another game I've been loving recently is another arcade game called Neon Invaders. The goal of the game is to shoot the aliens by using the space bar, and you use your arrow buttons to move left and right. It's such a simple concept, but let me tell you - I couldn't stop playing this game! It's so frustrating when you start playing until you figure out your coordination because you have to move really fast left and right while shooting at the same time, but once you get the hang of it, it's so fun and addictive! Also, the game is super cute!



Spending time in nature

I think spending time in nature is something none of us should ever forget to do from time to time. Nothing can restore our inner peace like nature can. It's scientifically proven that the color green relaxes us and is amazing for resting our eyes - these are just a couple of reasons why you should remember to go outside when you can and take a walk in your nearest park or forest. 
I spend a lot of time on my laptop and my phone because I work in digital marketing, and my hobby is obviously blogging + social media, so I really have to remember to rest my eyes as well sometimes. It's all about the balance - you can still use some of your free time to play fun games or watch movies, while on another occasion you can spend time in nature. This is what I tend to do.


Movies & series

I had to mention movies and series as some of my favorite things to do in my free time. I mostly watch something to relax when I'm alone, but I also love watching movies with friends. In this day and age, you don't have to depend on TV to keep you entertained and then complain that there is nothing you're interested in - thankfully now we have so many options.

Whether your choice is Netflix, HBO, YouTube, or something completely different, you can definitely find something for yourself on some of the many available platforms. I personally mostly use HBO to watch movies and series. I recently watched series called "Mare of Easttown" with Kate Winslet and absolutely loved it! If you're into crime and psychological thrillers, you will love it. 
I'm currently watching "Castle Rock", and I'm totally obsessed with this show. It keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time!


Hanging out with friends

It's not a surprise that out of all the leisure activities, hanging out with my friends would be my favorite activity. I think this is the case for a lot of people, and it makes total sense. A lot of people understand the value of friends and family more than ever nowadays. Since Covid started, unfortunately, so many people lost their loved ones; it's tragic. If we can get anything positive out of the situation we're living in, it should definitely be the realization of how lucky and blessed we all are to have family and friends. We should never take that for granted.
I love meeting my friends for coffee where we spend hours just chit-chatting or going out to bars and clubs when possible!

Hope you enjoyed this post and found some inspiration for what to do in your free time or when you're bored!
