How to maximize free time

Use your free time for personal and professional development.

Organization is half the battle, and when you organize your day, you can maximize your free time!

Today, there’s loads of things we can be doing after our day jobs. Thanks to the power of the internet and technology, it is absolutely amazing and we have the opportunity to maximize our free time!

How? Certainly, you are aware of the fact that thanks to technology, we can devour content. And we can do it on the go. It can be either for entertainment or education – it is completely up to us!

If you are excited about these possibilities as much as we are, then you need to keep reading. In this article, we bring you a few suggestions on how to maximize your free time. We’re talking stuff that will make your life fuller and that’ll unleash your potential.

Content, content, content

There are videos, blogs, vlogs, podcasts, photos, you name it! Whatever way of expressing you like best, you can find it and enjoy it for hours.

Whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, Spotify, LinkedIn, Udemy, YouTube, Coursera, edX…there are a lot of places where you can consume content, learn and develop. And most of the platforms also serve as a social network so you can get in touch with like-minded people as well. That can help you a lot when you need motivation (and we all do need a pick-me-up now and then!).

Even while commuting, we can choose to spend time in a way that will enrich our lives. We can listen to podcasts or watch educational videos and you never know when you’ll get inspired to do something new because of it!

Once we get home after work, we again have a choice – will we spend our free time re-watching and binge-watching TV shows or will we find a keynote to watch that will give us new insight and perhaps inspire us?

If you are the type who likes to keep busy and likes the “classic” learning style, you can even enrol an online course or otherwise watch an educational YouTube Channel like CrashCourse!

You can listen to podcasts or inspirational music during your workout, a long walk or while cleaning your house.

Why should you care about maximizing your free time?You decide on what you want to spend your time.

Everything you do adds up in the long run. Bits and pieces come together, and they help in building a new you. There are different ways you can maximize your free time. As long as you are truly interested in doing so, it will not be too hard.

Remember, you are what you consume. If you want to progress as a human being and get ahead as a professional, develop new skills and find opportunities, you need to lower the amount of free time you spend on other less relevant things.

Of course, we all need to relax and have downtime, but if you spend an hour commuting and consuming educational content during that time and then another one or two hours once you’re home, that is an amazing way to spend your free time doing something useful and good for yourself.

You can practice mindfulness, learn how to be grateful, and reflect on your life. Whatever helps you on a private or professional level is a great investment of your time. Don’t forget – you are what you repeatedly do. Maybe it’s time to look into your hobbies and see if you can reorganize your free time, so you maximize it?

Resting and recharging is important and there are plenty of fun things you could be doing. Never underestimate the power of hobbies, feeling productive, and just taking care of yourself!
