What are you waiting for? Just keep on reading gals and guys!
1. Planning a vacation.
Instead of going out and spending money, stay home and try to plan an upcoming vacation. Money will be spent on that vacation, and a little planning can go a long way toward making sure the vacation goes well and that investment pays off. You might even establish a travel fund account and begin saving. Hitting two birds with one stone, eh? A dream vacation is guaranteed, and you’ll learn to save!
2. Taking quality time for yourself.
We can all decide what the real quality of alone time means to us. Maybe that means pursuing a hobby like painting, reading a good book, or going for a long run. There are plenty of relaxing activities to enjoy that do not cost any money and recharge you for the work days ahead.
3. Starting a side hustle.
In terms of work, starting a side hustle can be a fun and fulfilling way to help your career grow and progress, as well as provide some extra cash during downtime. Think about some fun options that you would enjoy that might also allow you to try out new skills and career options.
Earning some extra endorphins is a great way to stay healthy and feel happier on a day off. Sweat it out, and then enjoy the extra energy and mood boost that come from a good workout.
A great way to spend free time is by giving back to our community. There are so many different causes worth giving back to, from food banks to animal shelters to beach cleanups. Volunteering can even help borrowers pay down their student loan debt.
6. Reading a new book.
With so many distractions on busy days, it’s difficult to find the time to read. Make reading a new book (or an old favorite) a priority on your next day off. There is nothing like the escape of a good story, whether it’s historical fiction, a murder mystery, or whatever else catches your attention.
7. Spending time with loved ones.
Productivity can mean a lot of different things. For instance, spending time with loved ones can be extremely beneficial, as it helps us build a support system and provides personal gratification. It also strengthens our relationship with them.
8. Updating your to-do list.
Want to get things done on a day off but don’t know where to start? Just sit down with a pen and some paper (or a document on your phone or laptop) and write an updated to-do list. Of course, it is not necessary to tackle the entire list in one day but do schedule when to check the most urgent items off the list.
9. Cleaning your house.
A good cleaning session can help make a home more comfortable, relaxing, efficient, and enjoyable to live in. Imagine your place freshly vacuumed or the bathroom scrubbed as motivation. A very satisfying sight indeed!
