5 Things to Do in Your Free Time

Now that I have graduated high school (pictures to come soon!!) and am officially on summer break, I have lots of free time on my hands. Last week I was busy with pre-graduation things but also had my fair share of moments with nothing to do (and if we're being honest, I really hate not being productive). It's so nice being able to get in some rest after the craziness of graduation, but I love the satisfaction of getting something done, even if it's something quick and easy. I've come up with 5 different things you can do in your free time that are fun but make you feel productive too!

+ Do a Youtube or Wii Workout 
Sometimes I'm bored and don't necessarily want to go to the gym, but am in the mood to shred a few calories. Something like Wii Zumba is so much fun and can be done in the comfort of your pajamas! I highly recommend checking out Youtube workout channels like Tone it Up, Blogilates and PopSugar Fitness if you want a quick workout whether it be abs, legs, arms, etc.

+ Go Through Your Clothes and Outfit Plan 
If I'm in a shopping mood but don't want to spend any money, I'll often go through my clothes and plan out new outfits I've never thought of before. Go on Pinterest for a little inspiration before and then snap pictures of outfits you put together so you have ideas when you're not sure what to wear!

+ Create a Bucket List 
Summer is quickly approaching and if you're like me, then you have an ongoing list of fun things you want to do in the upcoming months. Make a cute bucket list and hang it up somewhere you look often to remind yourself of activities you could do if you have a free day!

+ Organize Your Photos 
A few weeks ago I had nothing to do and decided to go through the photos I had printed at Walgreens over the past year. I organized them all and put them in a cute Lilly Pulitzer photo album, labeling each picture on the back. I love how I can go back years from now, flip through pictures and read a little description about every photo.

+ Give Your Bedroom a Facelift 
Spring and summer are the perfect time to freshen up your bedroom with some new accents. De-clutter, add some fresh flowers, maybe buy a new throw pillow or rearrange your desk positioning. Creating a gallery wall is a great idea too! You'd be surprised how fun it is to play interior decorator and do a few new things to your room.

What do you do when you have some extra free time? 


  1. Youtube workouts are the best! There is a 30 min Kayla Itsines bootcamp video from a camp she held in the Netherlands that kicks your butt!

  2. I've been home from college for two weeks and have done all of these things! Ha! Once you get your fair share of relaxing it starts to get a little bit boring! Love these tips and congrats on graduating!

  3. So jealous, I miss having Summer breaks! Enjoy EVERY minute of it! Youtubing a work out is a great way to be productive in downtime! I also enjoy reading, journaling, or planning trips (even if I'm not able to go on them anytime soon, I like to save info on places I want to visit for future reference)
