It is as important to plan for quality use of our leisure time as it is any other time. Here is a helpful exercise:
- List ten or more activities you enjoy or would like to try.
- By each one, note if it requires money, can be done alone or with others, is indoors or outdoors, active or passive.
- Rank them in order from most to least enjoyment. You may end up with some that are more interests rather than passions.
If you’re having trouble thinking of ideas, the best list of activities I’ve ever seen was in a book called “The Superwoman Syndrome” by Marjorie and Morton Shaevitz (no longer in print). Here is the list on the DailyPlanIt Wiki, which can be printed with a button on the lower right. See more ideas at Choose the Best Recreational Activities. Online, you could try DiscoverFun or Discoverahobby for ideas.
