It happens. You have a day off or some spare time and can’t think of a single thing to do. Sometimes I’ll think to myself  “hmm, what can I do today?” and can’t come up with anything. I’m one of those people who strives to be productive, so when I can’t think of anything to do, I get a little bummed out thinking that I wasted a day.

Whether you’re just bored and looking for something to do or if you’re like me and want to stay productive, here are some things you can do with your downtime to benefit yourself:

1. Organize something:

There is always something that needs to be organized that you’ve put off for too long. Now is a great time to do it. You’ll be able to check that off your to-do list and won’t have to worry about it looming in the distance. 

2. Write down your weekly goals:

With your notebook in hand, try to come up with a couple of realistic goals that you want to reach each week. If you can get started on that goal, even better.

3. Clean out your stuff:

As the season changes, so can the things you’ve accumulated. Now is a great time to clean out your closets and see if you have anything to donate. Get rid of things you haven’t used in 6 months to a year. I promise a little decluttering is good for the soul.

4. Take a course:

Learning something new is always an awesome way to spend your day.
