With so many things to do in your life, it can be worthwhile to take a moment and make sure you are spending your time well. Are you watching television shows that you don’t really love, eating boring and dull foods or reading books that leave you mystified and confused? If so, it might be time for a better plan to get the most out of your life or at least improve things in a few areas. To get you started, here are a few ideas that could add to your fun and enjoyment.
Learn a new language
Well, a lot of us have been at home dreaming of the day travel will return, and for some, it has already, I’ve found over the years, the more you understand the native language to that country, the better the trip.
Over the last year and a half, I’ve been re-learning french and also trying to gain a basic understanding of Spanish. While I admit I’, still terrible at both, I’ve had a lot of fun along the way in the process of trying to get better.
I will say it’s also very easy to pass hours on end when it comes to learning languages as it’s quite the undertaking, and for some, it can be tough to pick up some. Still, when you do, the scene of accomplishment connected along with learning something new, well, that sure brings a smile to my face.
Start a Quality Television Series
There is a lot of content out there, and not all of it is worthy of your time. The key is quality, or at least finding something you love. A new project by Geoff Johns might be just what you need. Johns is the executive producer of a new web television series that stars DC’s Stargirl, a superhero with extraordinary powers. In her younger days, Stargirl, aka Courtney Whitmore, was known as the Star-Spangled Kid. She mainly played around, but when criminals invaded her school dance, she sprung into action and discovered she had amazing superpowers.
This new teen drama series follows her exploits as she tries to save humankind from various dangers. Initially, she faced off against the Dragon King, an evil scientist and war criminal, but she soon gained the victory. This brought her a new rival, his daughter, Shiv, who is out for revenge. Along the way, Stargirl found time for a bit of romance with Captain Marvel. She also collaborates at times with members of the Justice League of America. This series is bound to have many twists and surprises as Stargirl faces off against evil villains.
Study a Musical Instrument
Most people love music. While most people enjoy listening to their favourite songs and artists, not many take up and master an instrument. This is an excellent way to increase your knowledge and enjoyment of music. You might even find you have a unique talent. The benefits of playing an instrument are numerous:
- Teaches patience and perseverance
- Reduces stress
- Expands creativity
- Increases your social network
- Builds confidence
- Increases music appreciation
- Gives your brain a workout
More than likely, playing a musical instrument will give you important insights into how music is created. You will better understand what your favourite performers are doing as they create enjoyable melodies from pianos, guitars, violins and more.
Perfect Your Room
Your room is like a sanctuary, and you owe it to yourself to make it as lovely as possible. Now might be the time to take a long hard look at your room and see what changes you can make. Maybe you need better lighting. Perhaps you need to tweak your music capabilities or add to your streaming options. Looking at possible updates for your room can spur your creativity.
It doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive, just think of what will make you happy. It could be as simple as taking down some old posters and replacing them with new ones that better reflect this stage of your life.
Express Yourself Anew
Many of us enjoy finding our identities through what we wear and how we accessorize, but some of us can simply stick to what works and never really venture outside of that. But what if we tried something new? Perhaps challenging ourselves with style can help us get out of our comfort zone and help us realize who we really are and how we really want to present each day. Fashion is not a puzzle to be figured out either, it’s fun to be had. For instance, finding the best bracelets for men, dying your hair, or even getting tattooed with a design you’ve wanted for a while can all have a major effect on how confident you feel.
No matter what you may do, find things that bring you joy and weave them into your monthly, weekly and even daily lives, that could be as simple as a bit of meditation or a piece of cake, could be reading an entire book or TV series, either way, just make sure you do what brings a smile to your face.
