1. Create a to-do-list
This activity will help us arrange a schedule for the next week to become more organized and organized to achieve our goals. Not only schedule activities, we can also make a menu list that will be consumed during the next week to balance the diet, and determine the weekly shopping list.
2. Cleaning the residence
After busy working or studying, take the time off to ‘clean up’ the environment around us, especially where we live. Or, at least clean up the room and tidy up the desk because a comfortable and clean environment will also calm the mind.
3. Shopping for weekly necessities
After compiling a shopping list, go shopping for necessities for the week ahead. Besides being able to fill free time, shopping on holidays will also save our energy compared to having to shop for daily necessities which will also cause us to spend more money.
4. Reducing the use of gadgets and social media
The millennial generation must have heard the term “smartphone slave”, right? Or maybe some of us have unconsciously become ‘slaves’ who are addicted to smartphones and gadgets? Well, don’t let it go! Try it, reduce its use on holidays and do more useful activities.
5. Develop a hobby
Have a hobby of taking photos? Just go hunting with friends from the photographer community. Do you like singing or playing music? Take advantage of the holidays to practice your skills. Or sports hobbies? Take yoga classes, play futsal, skateboard, or do whatever suits your hobby. Anyway, don’t be ‘idle’ on holidays.
6. Take courses or tutoring
Eits… even though you’re already working or studying, there’s nothing wrong with taking courses or tutoring to develop your skills and interests. Whether it’s a language course, music lessons, or simply attending a character development workshop, these are highly recommended to fill your free time with productive activities!
7. Gather and socialize with family or friends
Can you imagine how exciting this activity is? We all really like the name ‘family gathering’ or hangout with friends. There are various activities that we can do such as playing outdoor games, cooking together, shopping together, and many more.
8. Calming the mind
There’s nothing wrong, you know, we go away for a while from the hustle and bustle of the city, which often makes our minds ‘confused’. We can visit the countryside or the coast that is not too crowded to calm the mind and relax for a moment. Make no mistake, this activity is still considered productive because it can clear your mind and increase the creativity of your brain!
