Key Ideas

Meditation

Meditation significantly lowers depression, stress, and anxiety – the key reasons for a restless mind. 

Elimination of these factors greatly helps in improving concentration, thus increasing your productivity level.

Playing Puzzles

Puzzle games and crosswords are both good mind stimulators and can improve your brain power, confidence, and self-esteem.

Their inherent attractiveness lies in the fact they are challenging. Solving puzzles makes your brain work continuously, thus making you push the limits of your intellect.

Artwork

A hobby that you can pursue in a relaxed and non-competitive environment opens up the creative windows of your mind. 

Try something like embroidery instead of the usual paintings and water-color drawings.

Learn a New Language

The benefits of learning new languages are multifold – from enhancing communication skills in different languages to giving perception and overall smartness a boost and preventing dementia.

Additionally, knowledge of different languages helps significantly in the professional field by expanding and diversifying your career options. 

Travel Alone

Although it may sound a little awkward, solo traveling brings several benefits:

  • uplifting your confidence level
  • letting you enjoy quality “Me Time”
  • making you a better trip planner
  • helping you become a better observer. 

Write Down What You Feel

Make a list of the things you want to do. It doesn’t matter whether it comprises big or small things.

Rather, it’s the presence of a target that matters. Work through the list regularly and give your best shot to achieve your goals. 

Give Cooking A Chance

Cooking provides 3 main benefits:

  • A great pastime
  • Good health
  • Considerable savings with respect to finances.

Give Self Pep-Talk

Positive self pep-talk can turn out to be a great self-booster.

A self-talk session should have constructive critiques, compliments, sharing of everyday experiences, achievements, repeating positive comments received from worthy people and most importantly, boosting your own morale.

Do Social Work

Helping others, especially the less fortunate ones, is a great way to contribute and to make yourself feel happy and worthy.

You can take small steps and do it on your own, like offering food, clothes, or education to a few. Or, you can volunteer for a community cause like cleaning up the neighborhood. 

Learn a New Instrument or Dance

Playing an instrument not only takes you to a different world but improves fine-motor skills, eye-hand coordination, and cognitive development, apart from boosting your IQ. 

You may even opt for dancing, which is a significantly low-cost hobby that helps you to enjoy your pastime and even stay fit in the process.
