Things To Do

Ways to entertain yourself for free at home

It’s summer time, and for those of you who, like me, don’t have a full-time job, you probably get bored sitting around at home. Well I’ve got a solution for you—or solutions…

1. Watch videos on YouTube. I’ve recently become obsessed with beauty videos. But music and cat videos are favs of mine too.

2. Start a garden. If you live in an apartment, grow a few herbs in little pots on your windowsill.

3. Clean your house.

4. If you play an instrument, take it out and play, even if it’s been years.

5. Watch movies you haven’t seen in a while.

6. Start a new exercise routine. There are lots of free workout videos on YouTube, or purchase a workout DVD.

7. Do a crossword puzzle—without cheating!

8. Reread a few of your favorite books. Wuthering Heights tops my list, followed closely by the Hunger Games series and The Great Gatsby.

9. Rearrange your furniture.

10. Skype with one of your friends or relatives who lives far away.
