Staying all by yourself specially at a time when you know you have nothing to do, can be difficult .. in fact very difficult! well there is one very positive aspect to this that I recently discovered.
I pretty much had to go through this experience myself to discover something that might help people out there! So here’s the thing
Human mind is such that if it is bound by a particular time limit or say a particular task at hand that it has to complete, it will function quite differently in contrast to a situation where there are no limits or boundaries. Also, if you engage yourself whole heartedly in any task of your liking and sometimes dislike too, the results will be commendable
TASK 1 – cleaning the room
Ofcourse if you have exams going on, assignments to complete you might do this haphazardly in comparison to when you know you are at leisure and have to be wise enough to utilise the time because there is more than plenty available !
you end up cleaning way more than required and the end results trust me are very satisfying 😌
TASK 2 – you might want to try a hand at cooking
If you’re not a person who likes cooking, then out of forceful circumstances you might have to. And yeah don’t worry it might not turn out that good but you’ll be satisfied that you atleast made an effort to check the kitchen out ! 😉
TASK 3- you might want to try a hand at some new hobby
A purchase of some new instrument perhaps… okay I know you wouldn’t want to spend much on this but a new sketch book or cool coloured pens , a not so expensive ukelele could actually do wonders and yeah you end up watching YouTube videos about tuning and strumming and guess what!? You might learn quite a lot and end up surprising yourself !
TASK 4 – drawing out your life
You might have tried this a million times before. To end up confused and even more lost is quite normal. But I figured that specially when you have plenty of time to waste you could actually pen your thoughts down and a little bit of research wouldn’t hurt
TASK 5- taking a walk or a long shower
It is very much possible that you do that often irrespective of how much time you have available at your hand. But trust me, the feeling of indulging into walks and long showers or even exercise when your subconscious mind tells you that do it well, take your time
you can actually end up feeling more refreshed than ever !
So there are plenty more things that will bring your creative side out and make those deep rooted thoughts surface at the top of your mind. How can we forget social media!? Sure that will be a part of our daily activities but there will be a limit to it everyday that your mind itself will set an alarm for. The longer you indulge on checking notifications on the phone, the more tired your eyes will become and that’s when all the tasks I mentioned above will come into picture !
Happy alone time.. ! 😀
Life is not all that #hazedblurred
