Please be aware that this post sounds like I don’t ever just sit, scroll Instagram and watch Gilmore Girls which I definitely do! But recently, when I have a bit of time free, I’ve started to spend it a bit more wisely than I previously would.
Of course there are times when I just lay on the bed and watch my Youtube subscription feed, but 80% of the time, I try to put my energy to better use and enjoy some of the hobbies I’ve picked up over the last couple of months.
So, what do I do?
Get out for a walk
I’ve been on a mission to up my steps a bit more recently, and that combined with my new love of podcasts means that when I can fit it in, I’m always taking the dog outside or just nipping for a walk to the park solo.
I love the fact that I’m moving my body more, which feels fab, plus I always love getting fresh air! Promise you it feels better than just sitting on the sofa, although sometimes that feels amazing too.
Craft and paint
I’ve really picked up the art bug lately and I’m just loving how creative and inspired it makes me feel.
On an evening whenever I’m watching TV with the family, I’m usually working on my cross-stitch, and if I have a spare hour in the afternoon I’ve really been enjoying painting too!
I’ve yet to master cooking, but I’ve been enjoying baking so much these days that I just have to mention it.
I tend to go for healthier versions of my favourite sweet treats and I swear by Livia’s Kitchen recipes, although being 100% transparent here by telling you that not all bakes go that well!
Baking for me is starting to feel very theraputic and rewarding, and that combined with the fact that I then have snacks for the week is perfect.
How do you spend your free time more meaningful? I would love for some more tips 🙂
