Alright, we understand what you are thinking. WHAT spare time? Between streaming, watching Tik-Tok videos and social media, who has spare time? The point is, we all have spare time; it is just a matter of what we have, or we will decide to do with it. For some, it will be going down some wormhole of a topic on YouTube or Google. Others may be involved in video or online games. The question remains. What are you doing with your spare time? Here are some options to consider to expand your horizons.
If you don’t get the irony of bowling and “spare” time, all the more reason to head to your local lanes. It may not be climate change, but it is kind of sad to think there will be a generation who never picks up a bowling ball.
Go to the Library
Yes, they still exist and probably offer more resources than you can imagine. Library cards are still free, and some libraries offer high-tech access to audio and video recording studios and more. Plus, you can still find some terrific books there.
You can call it checking out or shutting down, but taking 30 minutes or an hour in a quiet place by yourself with no agenda can be rejuvenating. Your brain needs draining once in a while, and meditation is an exceptional use of spare time.
Wash and Wax Your Car
Yes, there are people you can pay to do this. But washing your car gives you some exercise and keeps you connected with the small dings and dents you may not have previously noticed. If you’ve never waxed a car, you are in for a treat. Give yourself an hour or so and watch that baby sparkle. It should almost be illegal.
