  1. This is such an awesome list. i do read blogs for fun and I play chess. I think it is time to learn new things or perhaps do something that I never did before. I love your bog btw! 😀 I am so glad to come across it 🙂
    Thank you for sharing this list Priya 🙂

      Do try something new. You never know what good is waiting for you. Let me know if you tried anything from this list or something completely different.

  2. These are all such great ideas and many work well as fantastic forms of relaxing self care ^^. Double win! I especially adore that you share the importance of relaxing and doing nothing sometimes. We all need that every now and again 😁.

      For all that we go through the entire day, I think at times we need to isolate and just relax and do nothing. Works for me as a stress buster.

  3. These ideas are so good! I’m going to try a few next time I have some free time. 😊

      Do let me know which one did you try and like it the most. Thanks.

  4. A great post for the summer! I like how you have some that are good for both indoor and outdoor, great for when the weather is not cooperating! I haven’t listed to a Ted talks in a while maybe I will check that out.

  5. Great list! I’ve really taken to #7 recently, and I’ve even gone a step further to make my own puzzles. I use Crossword Hobbyist and My Word Search to make my own crosswords and word searches, although I’m still on the hunt for a good Sudoku maker.

    1. iammyinspiration says: Reply

      Good luck with your games. That’s a really interesting way to spend time.

  6. I love reading and coloring adult coloring books!

    1. iammyinspiration says: Reply

      I love that too. Isn’t it fun?

  7. Ioana Alexandra Ciocirlan says: Reply

    Love the ideas! Gotta try some of them!🤗

    1. iammyinspiration says: Reply

      Sure. Do let me know which one did you try?

  8. What I love to do is to read travel blogs and find inspiration for my travels. Other then that, I love to edit my bucket list. I don’t know if you can call it a bucket list when there are over hundred items to cross off. Also, each day I listen 1 hour to motivational podcast and speeches. To me, It’s way better than reading those quotes itself, because you can do it more passive haha.

      It’s so good to know how productively you spend your time. I wish people take some inspiration from you, Jonas.

  9. 1,12,14 and 25 are always in my list

      Good to know that you’re spending your time doing something creative.

  10. I love your list of free time activities (except for the ironing part LOL). There are a lot of free things in the summer also (concerts in the park, movies in parks or on the beach) which makes it fun as well!

  11. I love to go hiking in my free time, it’s free and gets you outside in nature.

    1. iammyinspiration says: Reply

      Yes, I totally agree. Hiking is super fun!

  12. Great list, this! I like to go for a long mountain bike ride in my free time, if the wind speed is low enough.

    1. iammyinspiration says: Reply

      Wow, I haven’t done that in a long time.

  13. To be completely honest, every one of us had free time)whether we care to admit it or not). It’s often how we choose to spend that time that defines us. Thanks for encouraging us to spend it doing productive and inspiring things. 😀

    1. iammyinspiration says: Reply

      I’m glad you understood the real motive of this post. Yes, all we have to do is spend time productively, because we only have so much time.

  14. This is a great list! 🙂 Hope you will continue keeping us aware 🙂 Cheers!

    1. iammyinspiration says: Reply

      Thanks. You can add some of your ideas too here.

  15. Go to Aquarium is my favourite one 🙂

      Great. I hope you visit it very often. It really freshens up your mind.
