How To Spend Your Free Time Usefuly
Free time, it's the most exciting thing to hear when your shift ends and it's sad to hear that free time ends. Free time can be your break from work, a vacation, a holiday, or even the weekend. Your free time is your best friend to freshen up your body and mind, it is also your time to learn. If you don't have any ideas on what can make your free time productive then this article is for you.

1. Acquire or learn some new skills

Take an adult-education or community college class. Use your free time as an opportunity to pick up knowledge that has no direct bearing on your job or career advancement. Immerse yourself into learning these things for the sake of learning them, without having the pressure to achieve beyond the goals you've set for yourself.
  • For example, maybe you've always fancied yourself getting involved in archaeology, ballroom dancing, jewelry making, wilderness first aid, or hang-gliding.

2. Grow your veggies and try Gardening

Gardening is a great way to pass your free time and to use your hands to make food for your family and friends. Cacti are amazing plants that grow gorgeous flowers, and they're almost impossible to kill. Or you could try herbs, which are easy to grow and fun to use in cooking or in crafts.
  • If you're already an experienced gardener, redesign your garden or change your approach to what you grow in it. Try branching out and creating a meditation garden or a Persian garden

3. Turn cooking in to a fun activity

Cooking new recipes is a fun way to pass time when it's done for pleasure instead of necessity. Pull out a cookbook and try some new recipes. Or look in your fridge and cupboards, then search online for a recipe that uses those very ingredients (for example, search for "broccoli pineapple jalapeño recipes.") You can also check out Chef Ed's Veganish Cookbook for vegan recipes!
  • Once you've honed a few tasty recipes, throw a casual dinner party for people you really care about.
  • Spend an afternoon baking and learning how to use new techniques that you've never tried before.

4. Be Multilingual, Learn a new Language

Picking up a new language is a great way to engage your mind during your free time.[3] It can help you understand foreign cultures and learn about different parts of the world. Pick up a copy of a language-acquisition book online or at your local library. You can also read magazines and books, or watch movies and TV in the language you’re learning to make learning the language more fun.
  • Learning a new language will also enable you to communicate with people in your community who may not speak English.

5. Take up painting or drawing as a hobby

Making art is a great way to spend your free time: you can express yourself and pick up a new skill. Try out different types of painting, including acrylics, enamel, frescoes, inks, oils, water miscible oils, pastels and dry pastels, spray paint (graffiti), or watercolor. If you’re more interested in drawings, pick up a sketch pad and some charcoal.
  • For example, art and craft is filled with ideas for possible hobby angles; within painting alone you could investigate.
  • Visit your local art-supply store or hobby shop for supplies
