Let’s be honest. Finding something worth doing is really hard especially if you are working from home. Not to mention, pursuing one’s passion will not only frustrate you, but will also make you give up, but don’t worry because time is on your side and it’s not too late. In this article, you will find how to invest your time in a work-from-home setup.
Did you know that according to the Washington Post, Sir Isaac Newton, while stuck at home during the Great Plague in 1665, discovered one of the world’s phenomenal discoveries that includes calculus, three laws of motion, modern physical optics, and have made huge contributions that brought the birth of Quantum Mechanics which scientists like Max Planck, Gustav Kirchhoff, Neil Bohr, and many more great science personalities founded? What we profit from in our everyday lives is the product of these brilliant minds’ hard work!
Well, enough with the science stuff and let’s get back to you. Few are investing their time and perhaps more are spending it.
So, here is the big question. Are you just spending it frivolously or is this the moment to shine while in your work-from-home setup?
Alright, let’s immediately hop into it!
Invest in Your Mental Health
Investing in your mental health can never be an outdated option. Humans are known to have a limitless potential with our cognitive capabilities. One of the most recommended form of exercise to toughen up one’s mental health is meditation. Meditation is scientifically proven to give multiple benefits on one’s mental health. The daily tension and stress that accumulate in our everyday life can negatively affect our mental health. That’s why we need something that will stabilize the tension, anxiety and depression we’re struggling with because it’s just a necessity in the world we live in.
Moreover, with meditation, we can manage to fend off these anxieties and stress to have a better control of our thoughts and emotions. Arnold Schwarzenegger is known to meditate twice a day, before sleeping in the evening and after he wakes up in the morning. There are many types of meditation according to the Healthline. Find out what’s the best for you and start meditating now!
Invest in Your Physical Health
Move! That’s the most precise word to describe this one. Investing in activities that can stimulate your body can help lower the risks of diseases and improve your physical health. Don’t just be stuck at home and sitting without doing anything. Whenever you have free time, do something productive. Lacking in physically stimulating activities can lead to chronic diseases and high risk of obesity. That’s why exercising can not only prevent these health risks but can also make you feel good whenever you feel stressed while spending your free time. Besides, some of the drawbacks of just looking at your computer all day and doing your work are that they affect the quality of your sleep, and your joints and muscles. Exercising regularly and engaging in physically stimulating activities are some ways to improve one’s physical health and can lengthen one’s life span to lead a better life.
Invest in Your Knowledge
“Knowledge is power”, or so they say. The accretion of knowledge is a fundamental survival mechanism to organisms such as humans. Thus, when we learn something that can enhance our knowledge, we are building ourselves a great edge to become someone who is better than the norms.
Moreover, acquiring knowledge is the basic foundation of how our world develops the civilization that we profit in our present world. That’s why investing in your knowledge is a great deal to boost one’s productivity while in your work-from-home setup. There are many ways to gain knowledge, whether it be applying courses online, learning a new instrument that you really wanted or reading books. Sure, many online articles are available for you to read; however, you can’t because of your hectic schedule or other factors that affect your learning in the past. Now is the best time to learn and widen up one’s horizon. There may come a time when you’ll lose your way and doubt your skills. Always remember, it’s not all about who has the talent or not, but it’s all about who’s willing and who’s not. Persevere and don’t give up because at the end of the day, it’s always you who benefits from all that you do.
Invest in Your Leisure Time
You see, the more you are stressed, the more you mess up; the more you overthink about things, the more it also complicates. That’s why while in your work-from-home setup, it’s more like a necessity to do something that is kind of nothing. Generally speaking, men have something that is called the nothing box. There comes a time when men suddenly just stare out of something insignificant, looking lifeless and depressed while being content the way it is. Yes, that is when men go into their nothing box. In some places of the globe, India for instance, it’s common for people to enjoy each other’s company without doing anything or even having a conversation. Besides, you can’t do anything to make things turn out the way you wanted it to be. So just sip your cup of tea and enjoy doing nothing, because in this world, not finding something worthwhile will only be your loss.
Invest in Your Bonds
Family, friends, your partner or the people you hold dear to yourself: We may have almost forgotten to establish our relationship with these people. Having someone in your life with whom you trust and who truly cares for you is an important aspect of a person’s development to live a healthy life. Establishing a bond that cultivates an emotional connection is the basis for building relationships. The world doesn’t spend its day only making the world go round. Cherish them and become someone who is capable of showing them that they are special to you.
Time certainly is our most valuable asset. Not all people are capable of spending it productively because of the current trend in this present generation. We all have the same roughly 24 hours on solar day and 23 hours 56 minutes and 4.1 seconds on sidereal day, but the fine line that separates between you and the others is what you do with your time. With the few ideas that I’ve mentioned above, I hope that you become someone who invests his/her time in productive things rather than spend it frivolously. Always take care of yourself and become the better version of what you are now.
