Especially for students and teenagers, there are a lot of ways to be productive and just as many productive things to do. After SEE more than half of the students who have given exams waste their time either watching movies or series or doing nothing. Let’s try to make the most of our time now since we spend so much of it wasting away! This does not imply that you must fill your time with a plethora of boring tasks. On the contrary, there are a plethora of fun ways to be productive even when you aren’t studying. So here is the list of ten productive things you can do after SEE:
Write A Big To-Do List
You may have nothing to do when you are bored. However, this is rarely true for students who have plenty of spare time. There is always a creative part that you can improve or be good at.
There are so many things to accomplish that you constantly keep in your thoughts, from everyday chores around the house to work-related or study-related responsibilities, to catching up with friends, to something you promised yourself or someone else! To cleanse your mind, write everything down, and never use “I forgot” as an excuse again.
Simple to-do list sheets, such as these, can be used because you can keep them in front of yourself at all times and tick items off. However, you are free to use any notebook or application you like!
Plan your time
Yet, another productive thing to do after SEE is to organize or manage your time properly. Right after you write your to-do list, you can organize your time by considering what you are doing extra in your spare time.
When you have spare time, why not plan your time for the next month or quarter? If that seems too difficult, start with a week!
As time goes by, “there are two possibilities for your life six months from now: one where nothing changes and one where everything changes.” Every day, you live by it. Someone else will decide where your life goes if you don’t. Consider your entire life: self-care, relationships, healthy habits, work, school, and creative projects. Define your present point for each and whether there are any aspects you want to change or preserve. Put it all down in your planner, make a list of concrete activities, and begin consciously moving your life in the right direction!
Discover a new creative skill
Boredom could be your brain’s way of telling you that you have too much spare time and that you should do something fun with it. Why not channel your inventiveness toward learning a new skill?
Enrolling in classes (or maybe watching YouTube also) to improve your qualifications can be combined with learning new skills. This might be anything from reading a book (reading a book is an excellent example from my list) to learning something new, such as how to play an instrument or anything else that takes time to master. Practicing an instrument can be a lot of fun, and it’s also a unique approach to keeping oneself entertained and learning. This is true whether you’re learning a new instrument or improving your skills on the one you’ve been playing for a long time.
Practice your current skills
Yet simple but one of the productive things to do. So you’re in decent form, huh? Could you, however, do better? Even if you’re an A-player (and how do you know whether you’re an A-player? Is there a test for A-players? (Not “a participant”). Regardless, unless you’re widely regarded as one of the best in your area, there’s almost certainly room for improvement. Even if you are the best in your profession, you must practice maintaining your position.
Do you think Kiran Chemjong has stopped practicing football?
Or that Sandeep Lamichhane has stopped practicing cricket?
There’s no way. To stay on top, even the best must keep their talents sharp.
So, how do you go about doing that? You may wish to work on a new problem or try to improve your speed on previous ones. For instance, as a writer, I enjoy copying old advertisements or books by authors or copywriters. I admire and learn from them. Perhaps it’s sketching in a manner you’ve never tried before or rehearsing your sales pitch using a different approach. Find a way to practice whatever it is you’re doing when the pressure isn’t on.
Learn to speak a new language by expanding your vocabulary
There is always a plus side to learning a new language. Simply learning a new language can help you in your future by interacting with new people who are completely unfamiliar with your culture or traditions. The globe is becoming increasingly interconnected as a result of the internet. Multilingualism might come in handy at work or when traveling and connecting with individuals from different cultures. It may also make it possible for you to view or read new shows or books.
Start a side hustle
Another productive thing to do on the list is starting a side hustle. It’s never too early or too late to start your own business. You can learn how to start a business by watching courses regarding business on the internet. Why not earn some extra money while you’re at home and not too busy fulfilling a few small dreams? What could be a more fruitful activity than one that pays you directly?
Increase your income by finding a side hustle that fits your free time and expertise. Who knows, maybe it’ll turn into a full-time job one day!
Build habits to achieve your goals
You will have goals to attain throughout your life. This is an endless process. Setting smaller goals that are collectively aimed at obtaining the ultimate end goals is the best way to go about it. Achieving little goals not only helps you focus and separate your energy but also gives you confidence and zeal. Knowing that you can achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself prepares you psychologically, emotionally, and technically for bigger ones.
Make it a habit to do so from the start. You should make a list of everything you think is important. This can comprise formulas, concepts, historical dates, names, events, and doubts, among other things. Making notes has the advantage of allowing you to refer to them at any time. Because they are individualized, you will always be able to work around them.
Set Up a Workout Routine
Health is a crucial factor in this growing world. Many teenagers do not have a healthy diet in their daily routine and tend to eat junk foods due to unawareness. This is one of the most underrated habits that teenagers should develop. Eating well and exercising are always beneficial to your health.
How long have we been waiting to get started on this activity? If you work out regularly, you already know that routine is the key to a successful and consistent workout program. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you about the advantages of working out and staying in shape. Are you able to obtain some basic gym equipment? If you follow some of the training routines available on YouTube, you won’t even need such equipment.
As a student, it’s critical to be aware of your surroundings as well as your well-being. Also, meditation can help you find some peace of mind in times of uncertainty. Find a quiet place, light some candles, and listen to some therapeutic meditation music to cleanse your thoughts. Meditation is currently one of the most effective strategies to reduce stress and improve general health. Especially for students, who are mostly hampered by the stress of studying, meditating can be useful to reduce the thought process if they tend to make it a habit.
