We all need some time when we can be lazy and just de-stress
But eventually too much free time can become, well, too much.
So instead of wasting your whole evening on the couch, why not pick up a long-term hobby?
And while you're at it, make your friend do it too so you can keep eachother in it for the long haul.
Take an online course.
See if there are any community art classes available and re-discover your love for pottery, painting, photography, etc.
Take advantage of a long-term volunteering opportunity
Join a gym and go to a group workout class (at least) once a week.
Learn a new sport, find a local league and join it.
Is Ultimate Frisbee really a sport? Yeah, yeah it is.
Learn how to write an app for your phone
Start a weekly game/puzzle/movie night with your friends/family.
Everyone has that one great idea that would make an awesome book that would become a best-seller and would make you famous. Use that free evening to start making that book a reality.
Start a letter exchange with a friend!
If you don't do this already, start a diary and write in it (at least) once a week.
When it gets warmer, figure out if your area has any community gardens and, if it does, get a plot!
And if you can't commit to anything regular, just promise to yourself that you will do one new thing every week or two.
You don't wanna look back on your life and wish you'd done more exciting things. Don't be like this guy.
Be like her!
