How to utilize your precious time?
- Define what is “fun” for you:
When you are not sure how you like to have fun, it is easy for you to spend hours surfing the internet and watching junk programs on television. It would be great to have activities like a jazz concert, eating out with friends, reading a book, cooking a new dish, or doing something as simple as taking a walk.
- Make a free schedule:
You can define what kind of activities to do during the open days such as: at night: read a book, practice guitar, study a language. On weekends: eating out with friends, going to the movies with the couple, or visiting the family.
- Take immediate action:
If you want to start reading, always take the book with you to take advantage of the moments. If you are going to prepare a new dish, go to the supermarket now and buy the ingredients.
- Make appointments:
Call your friends or write to them and commit once and for all to leave the promise of eternal coffee never taken. Do not think twice and call them now.
- Create a calendar:
Organize outings with your friends. Take advantage of the city’s activities such as theater, exhibitions, museums. Plan dates according to what is best for you, such as free tickets on certain days of the week or cheaper rates.
