1. Exercise

Now, this first task is crucial. With so much free time on our hands, we need to have the energy to be active, during this time. A few Centuries Ago we used to move around and lift things. Almost all of our jobs required us to work out our bodies whether it’d be tending to the farms or creating tools in the workshop.

But now most of us work behind computer screens and registers. We aren’t getting the right amount of exercise that our body needs to function properly. It’s actually been proven by studies that people who work out have more energy throughout the day. If you don’t have the energy you are gonna spend the majority of your free time on effortless things like Netflix and Gaming.

A Simple workout program like Starting Strength is enough for you to get started on improving your fitness and gaining more energy throughout the day.

2. Reading

You have probably heard this advice a hundred times over.  The stuff that you are learning in school is outdated. The large majority of information you are learning over there will not be used once you graduate.

This means that the large majority of people don’t know what in the world they are doing. Real Life knowledge is like Managing Finances, Social skills, Dating, Diet, and Fitness are basically not existed among the population.

This is actually a very good thing for you. This means that you can easily climb to the top because, well your competition kinda sucks.

A famous entrepreneur once said that You Can Become an Expert in any field by Reading Just 3 Books On The Subject. By simply reading 3 books you’ll know more about any subject than 99% of people out there.

If you wanna succeed at the Game of Life you have to read the instructions manual. Focus your reading on Self-Development Books as they provide practical knowledge that can be applied in real life.

3. Meditation

Meditation is one of those things that have been proven a hundred times over to be extremely beneficial Yet, nobody does it, Why?

Well, it’s probably because on the surface it’s one of the most boring tasks out there. You sit down and you do nothing right.  Well, there’s a lot more to it. When you meditate you are actually training your brain you learn how to control what thoughts to focus on and which thoughts to ignore. This one skill is crucial to becoming a happier person. You’ll also have a lot more mental energy throughout the day.

It’s so important actually that if you want to change one habit in your life it should be meditation.

Meditating for just 10 minutes a day is more than enough to start reaping the benefits.

4. Hobby/Passion

Everyone has a Passion that triggers the inner child in them. It’s something that brings out a sort of excitement in you. Instead of dreading the time spent on it you kind of get lost in the exploration.

The reason this is the last task is that the other three supplement your ability to work on your hobby or your passion.

Reading gives you the knowledge to grow in your hobby, Meditation gives you the Headspace for Creativity, And Exercise ultimately gives your body the energy to focus on this hobby even after a long day of work.

This Hobby whether It’d be dance Art, Writing, creating your own music, Make it a wish foundation. Whatever it is, is your source of fulfillment.

Without it, you will not feel whole. You will feel as if there is something missing in your life. If you work on your hobby long enough and own your craft can eventually be a source of income. Once you reach this stage your Life will transform that one you dread into one that excites you.

In my opinion, these are the four most easy and important things you should focus on in your free time.
