Feeling Short On Time? You’re Not Alone: Have A Life Despite Harsher Time Constraints. No matter where you’re from, or where you live, unless you happen to be extremely wealthy, life is not exactly a holiday. Life has always been busy for most working people, but some argue that it is not busier than ever. Leaving less and less free time to dedicate to your hobbies, pastimes and spending time with friends or family. Such is life, and it has come to the point where most people almost entirely dedicate themselves to either their career or just trying to scrape by until their next paycheck. Well, it does seem rather grim when you think about it, but with some clever planning and reconsidering, you could still squeeze in some activities during the little downtime you have.

Social life

When you work full time, your social life is often limited to more or less just weekends, well, except for the occasional time you pop out to the pub or bar with your friends after work. Fortunately for you, we live in the age of the internet and socializing online has never been easier. The amount of social networks out there is quite astonishing and you are sure to find one to fit your needs. Want to go and meet someone special?

Tired of Tinder-esque dating sites full of people looking for one-night stands? Want to find something a bit more serious? Need a quick fix of just chatting with your friends? If so, Facebook is for you. Want to find out what your friends are up to and follow your favorite musicians or artists? Twitter is probably the way to go. The fact that social media will never replace actual, face to face human interaction should go without saying, but this is definitely something which can help you through those tougher times.

Hobbies and pastimes

If you have long given up on your hobby because you have no time to dedicate to it, you are not alone. Many people suffer from the same problem. Often conclude that the best thing to do would be just to resign and spend their evenings watching TV. This seems like a dismal way to go about life. So, if you want to once again get involved with something else other than work and mindless entertainment, there are a few ways to go about that.

  • Try to pick up a hobby which you can enjoy on the go. The amount of time wasted sitting around on public transport to and from work. Also, on the way to the city, back home, sitting around in queues at the doctor’s office, is pretty sizeable. Pick up something you can do in situations like these, for example, knitting, reading books, or even portable gaming.
  • Choose hobbies which benefit from shorter, but regular, bursts of time put into them. Rather than ones which require you to sit down for hours on end. In that way, you can fit in an hour or two every day into your schedule. So, rather than having to take out a sizeable chunk of your day just to get started.
  • Try to indulge in your hobbies while doing other things. For example, if you happen to be watching your favorite show at a set time. See if you can do something else while watching it, learning to multitask like that definitely improves chances of actually having some extra time on your hands.
