Great Activities To Boost Your Mood and Fill Your Free Time

Written by on June 25, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

At some point we’ve all wondered whether we are spending our free time wisely, staying active, productive and engaged with creative and fulfilling activities. Yes, there are many ideas on how to keep yourself busy and learn new things while having fun. However, we know that you can’t make every day productive and that’s absolutely normal. Spending your time watching Netflix on the couch or scrolling through social media are reserved when even doing nothing feels too heavy on you. However, those days should not become your routine, as at the end of the day the feeling of accomplishment and job well done will put a smile on your face. Those are not supposed to be complex and make you quit right before you start something. So, before you start thinking about things and hobbies that make you happy, here are a couple of ideas for fun things to do at home.

Try an Instagram baking recipe

Now is the perfect time to test your cooking skills and try a recipe that you find interesting and delicious. There are many amateurs and professional chefs online that put a lot of effort and love to create their social media collages for cooking that are supposed to be a tribute to cooking as an art and joyful activity. Try to bake your first chocolate brownies or that Chinese dish you love to eat outdoors – take the ingredients on your next shopping run before you step in the kitchen and surprise yourself and your loved ones.

Create a peaceful spot in your house

We all deserve a peaceful corner in our house where we’ll spend our leisure time. You’ve probably run into few ideas you love on how to decorate your space for relaxing or reading. Renovating and decorating does not necessarily have to cost you a lot of money and time. You already have almost everything you need in order to spice up your personal space. First, clean and declutter the space from unnecessary things. Make sure your cosy area gets enough natural sunlight. When it comes to accessories and décor-you already have everything you need. Grab a few big colourful pillows, use your old rug as a cover for your chair, organise your books in a big wall bookshelf or make a tower out of them and your space will feel like new.

Plant flowers

Breathe life in your home and decorate your balcony with different, colourful seasonal flowers. Green leaves, fresh air and a direct connection to nature can help you clear your mind and relax while you beautify your home. Planting flowers, caring for them and watching them grow is rewarding, as well as educational. It brings great joy to watch them bloom from tiny seeds and know that you’ve been responsible for them. Try to relate to the growth of a flower, starting from a seedling to full bloom. Care for your wellbeing as you care for your plants and you’ll notice how good thoughts and vibrations can also reflect on your mood.

Host a themed dinner night

Pick a country you would like to learn more and explore. Try cuisine and recipes that are unique to that country and prepare a meal that would be served as a special dish. Your family or friends can even try to dress properly for that occasion, combining clothes that are somewhat traditional or authentic for that country. Each guest would be responsible to bring one fun fact about the place to share at dinner time. For example, you could choose China. You can serve noodles, sweet and sour chicken or traditional Chinese salad. Plan the evening for trying delicious food while also learning new things on a different, creative way. If this looks like you have to put too much effort, organise a barbeque party even though you don’t have a big backyard or balcony. Enjoy and indulge in delicious burgers and hotdogs while having fun with a different kind of Sausage Party. This game quickly became one of the favourite food-themed online slots among players, check it out if you like to play online games.

And last but not least, do what you’re doing right now- surf ideas and articles that might spark your interest for something new. Think about the topics and things that you are interested in. The universe, aliens, or maybe watch tutorials on how to start making handmade jewellery? It’s always good to explore and be curious in your spare time.
