We’ve all been in the situation before where we want to wind down but we aren’t sure how. Sometimes we just want to get away and read a book or take a nice bubble bath, but there are other times where we want to engage our brains a bit and actually do something rather than nothing. What options do we have when we want to unwind but we aren’t sure what to do? Technology is a great way to get some downtime in, and here are just a handful of ways you can make it work for you!
Playing Games Online
Believe it or not playing games online can be a great way to destress and earn money too. We are all aware of some games like World of Warcraft at one time offering real money for different things like selling kitted out accounts or for farming gold but for those of us who don’t have the hours to put in what are our options? Betting sites are a great way to make some money online without having to do much aside from playing games. With many sites also offering free spins or no deposit play you can play without any risk on your part on a number of sites as well. Don’t forget that you can often qualify for welcome bonuses as well!
Watching Your Favourite Shows
With the advent of the likes of Netflix and Amazon’s own TV and film studio now more than ever there are a whole host of fantastic options for TV and film online that are not just streamable but that you can watch again and again. Depending on your region you may be able to catch episodes of some of your favourite shows on Youtube as well – just type the name into the search bar with “full episodes” and away you go. Youtube is great for potentially older shows that have a following but that newer companies like Netflix won’t stock. So what better time than to catch up on your favourite 90’s flicks and shows?
There are a few popular websites you can access on your phone or laptop that offer fun time-killing quizzes to take. Not all are time-killers though, and some are actually great ways to test your knowledge or memory and can quiz you on things like world capitals, countries of the world or even just basic trivia about your favourite TV shows and films. Check out the likes of sporcle.com for a couple of great examples of quizzes you can do in your spare time.
Of course everyone’s favourite thing to do is to just chill out at the end of the day with a good old browse of Facebook, Instagram or the like. Of course it’s easy to get lost in the many posts and shares of social media but it can be a great way to wind down when you get to chat to friends from afar over a virtual glass of bubbly.
So how do you like to wind down at the end of the day? Do any of these appeal to you? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
