What to Do Rakib Uddin
Stuck at home, we have already said ‘Hi!’ to our new partner ‘boredom’. We have nothing to do but sitting idle, wondering ‘what to do?’ Yeah, we have a few chores to do, but they are as boring as our school was before. So, here are some ways to pass your free time creatively.
Pick a book
I know a few people are already trying to escape this page, but believe me, it’s really fun. You must’ve faced this situation when your mom asks you to read a book, and you may have read that too. It wasn’t so fun, right?
Before you start reading, find out what you like. Take a bunch of books from your bookshelf or nearby library. Then read a few pages from the first, last, middle or anywhere of the book. If you feel interested, keep it, and if you don’t, send it back to the bookshelf. After checking all the books you have got, it’s time to research. Explore your liked books and try to understand what kind of books are those. Now, you have found a few types of books in which you are interested. Finish those, and that’s how you can be a bookworm. But you should also read the books your parents give you.
2. Keep a diary
If you have a passion for writing, it’s a great way to improve your writing skill and handwriting. Write about whatever you like, recap your day, doodle or do anything you want cause it’s your diary. But it’s all about you if you want to keep it secret or public.
If you are a little crafty, then you must’ve heard this word. Origami is an art where you will use only paper. Fold it in many ways to give it a shape. You can find a lot of tutorials on social media.
4. Tidy up
Look around. Isn’t it a little messy? Did it ever happen when you look for your pen but can’t find it anyway, and you started thinking of your house as a Bermuda triangle? That’s all because you live untidy. Psychologically, the person who is surrounded by messy and unorganized stuff has a bigger chance to feel anxious and become depressed. So, please don’t keep it for later; start now.
5. Learn a new language
Sounds difficult, right? But it’s one of the best things you can do in your free time. Your brain is like iron. When used, it is fine, but the time you stop using it, it starts getting rusty. Also, it will help you to communicate with your foreign friend. Not only English, Other languages, including Arabic, are also recommended.
6. Find out a hobby
I am sure many people like me write “gardening” as their hobby in the “my hobby” paragraph. However, they hate it. Since childhood, we have been knowing gardening, coin collecting, stamp collecting as the only hobbies. But there are a lot. Writing, caring for a pet, doing crafts, drawing are also hobbies. Find out your loved one. Give it time. Stick to it.
7. Keep a journal
To explain what it is, I have to say that it’s almost like a diary, the extra thing you will do is you’ll decorate each and every page of it. Besides improving your writing skill, playing with colours will make you more creative. Writing and decorating before sleep will help you to relax and have a good night sleep.
8. Enrich your brain vocabulary
Look at your desk. What’s there? Books, notebooks, pens, colours etc. Now, choose one object, for example, a pen. Try to find out a few more words you can say instead of a pen. If you are struggling, then ask Google. Learn 5-10 new words each day. Write it down, and don’t forget to revise.
If you have a lot of free time that you are bored of, what are you waiting for? Pick up a pen and sit down with a piece of paper. Draw whatever you want. Try out different styles like sketching, cartoon style. Try out various materials like oil pastels, crayons, colour pencils etc. It is okay if you have nothing of this. The pen in your hand and an old piece of paper are enough to expand your creativity. These are sufficient to give your mind a face. Try once. Again social media are your inspiration.
Seeing the title, boys may say, “I am a boy. Why will I cook?” if you already said this, you have to know that cooking is an art and from that point of view, every girl who knows cooking is an artist. Even making a perfect cup of tea is a skill. Then why don’t you do it? Take it as a hobby. No matter what you have. Start with those. Give your family a surprise. Also, you have a masterchef at your home, your mom. And for the last time, social media are your inspiration.
