6 guilt-free activities that will let you experience all the fun without compromising your health
It’s easy to get bored these days, especially since many of us are still taking extra precautions to stay outside. For many adults, fun activities can mean doing some of the most extreme things, but that’s not always the case. There’s a wide range of boredom busters that can proactively fill your time with meaningful, fun activities, and even strengthen your bond with the people who matter.
This activity is popular among all ages. It’s a low impact workout, allowing you to relax and reflect on your day while protecting you from obesity and other chronic diseases. You can do it alone, with a friend or even with the whole family. If you care about your mental health, cycling helps release chemicals like serotonin and dopamine (the so-called happiness hormones) that will make you feel good every time.
Collecting as a hobby
If you think collecting stuff is a bit boring, think again. Many collectors are happy to research, locate, organize, catalog and display anything that piques their interest. There are people who collect watches, dolls, vinyl records, antiques and even works of art. For fun, other people collect mugs, postcards, magnets, and other vacation souvenirs. The possibilities are endless and all you have to do is find out what you really like to start with, then ask your family and friends to help you out.
Note that it might cost you (a little) money, but if it makes you happy, why not, right?
Experiment in the kitchen
Cooking is a must-have skill for everyone, and there’s nothing wrong with wanting to try out different dishes and recipes, even from the comfort of your own home. Just get out your utensils, some ingredients, a laptop/tablet where you can follow recipe videos, and you’re done!
You can even crack a cold beer after cooking your meal, or even while you’re at it! Remember to drink in moderation since you are still cooking.
Play online games or have game night with friends
The game is not just for the youngest! Studies have shown that playing (in general, not just video games) improves adult mental health, so why not start, right? You can opt for a relaxing simulation or role-playing video game or a simple word game or crossword app that can be installed on your mobile phone.
Maybe even throw a game night with your friends, or get your family together and make some board games and make everyone relive the days when things were easier and the world felt like an oyster. . Don’t forget the food and drink for your game night, and sometimes beer seems like the best bet for this sort of thing.
Blast your comfort TV series or whatever you want
Staying up late might not be for you these days, but let yourself relax for a day or two and watch whatever you want. It could be a sitcom you’ve always loved, or a movie franchise you’ve always enjoyed watching, or even an anime or K-Drama you’ve missed. Pair your binge-watching mood with your comforting snack and maybe even a nice cold bottle of beer. It will be a good way to decompress after a crazy week.
Throw a party or go dancing the night away while keeping the distance
Partying never gets old and it’s definitely a timeless way to have fun! Dress up in your party clothes, catch up with friends, and go dancing the night away (safely, okay?) Do it in your backyard, rooftop patio, porch, or other outdoor space of the house where there is plenty of room to breathe.
You don’t need to have something to celebrate to party, you just need to have fun while you’re at it! While your friends bring their own potluck, get the grill ready to start a fun BBQ night. Of course, no party is complete without soft drinks or alcohol! Grab a bottle, or maybe two, then let loose. Remember to drink responsibly.
All of these things can be done with or without alcohol, but you know things are twice as fun when you’re drinking happily! Fortunately, the San Miguel brewery has introduced the San Mig Zero, a refreshing beer that contains the least carbohydrates and calories compared to all the local beers, with zero sugar, allowing you to live a guilt-free life. It’s the perfect excuse to have drinking sessions with friends and family. With low carb, calorie, and sugar-free, it’s fun and carefree in every bottle!
Don’t let boredom get you down. Have a little fun and let yourself live the moment because life is beautiful!
