4 fun activities to do during our well-deserved ‘me time’

Sometimes, all we need is time alone to help us relax and reconnect with ourselves

Momentarily stepping away from everything and everyone to recharge is an essential self-care practice. Spending alone time regularly helps lower stress while also increasing productivity and energy. 

“Me time” can be as short as five minutes or as long as an entire day—what’s important is you spend it doing something you enjoy or help you relax.  Here are some simple—and fun—leisure activities you can do while making time for yourself.

Catch up on your reading list

Have you ever heard of bibliotherapy? Reading books is proven to help soothe the mind, nurture a sense of well-being and enhance self-awareness. That makes it a worthwhile activity during your designated “me time.”

We’re pretty sure you have books at home just waiting to be read, or a list of titles you’re interested to pick up from bookstores. Expand your reading list now by scoring books from a wide selection of genres at affordable prices from Booksale.

Try a new video game

Start a new hobby

Having a hobby is truly a lifesaver. Aside from putting you in a positive mood, it helps keep you away from burnout and even encourages you to direct your energy towards things that give you a greater sense of purpose.

Among the most common hobbies people take up during their free time is photography, and the Vivo Y12s is one good gadget to help you pursue this craft. 

Take detailed photos with its AI dual camera, which consists of a main 13MP rear camera and an f/2.2 large aperture. If you want to get into portrait photography, enjoy greater depth with its bokeh camera feature. Get the Vivo Y12s for only P6,499 at Boma Techcom now.

Make a photo wall

And now that you’ve taken up photography, why not proudly display your works at home, too? It’s a great way to track your progress and encourage you to keep pursuing your newfound passion.

Get your photos printed at Tronix and neatly hang them on your bedroom wall. You can also avail Tronix’s personalized packages for creative ways to showcase your photos. We recommend printing it as an A4 or A3+ size calendar—that way, you not only show off your photos but also give them a practical use.
