Do you know which nation is the least productive in the world? Procrastination. Jokes aside, we all know that procrastinating is bad for us but sometimes it just takes too much effort to do something meaningful with our free time.

Well, says who? If you think being productive needs a whole lot of commitment, you can’t be more wrong! It doesn’t even take 60 minutes too, so you can definitely fit it inside your schedule no matter how busy you are. Need some ideas? Check out some of our recommendations below.

 

1. Start a simple exercise routine and stick with it!

One misconception about getting fit is that it requires hours of demanding workout at the gym. In reality, it all depends on consistency more than anything, especially in terms of exercise and diet.

Just take a look at this man from Japan who managed to get a six-pack by sticking to a healthy diet and doing high-intensity interval training (HIIT) exercises for 4 minutes each day in just 5 months. Wah, just FOUR minutes every day? Surely, we can do this too instead of laying in bed staring at the ceiling all day.

If HIIT is just too intense for you, try out these simple and short exercises instead:

  • Take a walk in your neighbourhood garden. It could help ease your mind too!
  • Yoga. Relaxing, meditative and good for your posture.
  • Strength training such as squats, pushups and pullups. Make sure to do them correctly and in good form yeah!

Seriously, no matter how short the exercise is, just make sure to keep it consistent and you’ll definitely get the desired results.

2. Start listening to podcasts

3. Volunteer for a local charitable cause

Rather than spend your free time lazing away, why not do something truly meaningful? Best way to do so is to volunteer your services to charitable causes near you. It won’t take much of your time but it’ll mean the world to the people you’re helping!

Besides, volunteering does wonders for your personal growth too as it will:

  • Connect you with people that share a similar passion and vision.
  • Most NGOs are very reputable and joining a volunteer programme with them could help with your career growth.
  • Learn new skills as well as improve your communication and interpersonal adeptness!
  • It may prove to be a life-changing and rewarding experience that will motivate you to strive forward in life.

How awesome is that? Well, if you’re looking for a volunteer programme to join, here are some Malaysian-based one you can check out:

  1. SUKA Society -An NGO that fights for children welfare as well seeks to empower children and the youth in Malaysia!
  2. Yayasan Generasi Gemilang – A foundation that aims to provide access to quality education for underprivileged children and families in the country.
  3. Hospitals Beyond Boundaries – A local NGO which looks to improve the health of vulnerable communities through sustainable health care.
  4. Need to Feed the Need (NFN) – A soup kitchen that operates in Lorong Medan Tuanku 2, Kuala Lumpur every Thursday night.

Remember, a life lived for others is a life worthwhile. 🙂

 

4. Start your own DIY project

Another thing you can do to be productive without taking much of your time is to start a do-it-yourself (DIY) project from the comfort of your own home. It doesn’t have to be a grand engineering creation, just something close to your heart would do.

Besides, you don’t actually need specific tools or skills to commit on a DIY project, just a touch of creativity would suffice! For example, have a lot of unused clothes lying around? Why not turn them into grocery bags via a simple DIY hack like in the video below?

The possibilities are endless! The beauty of DIY projects is that you don’t have to finish it in one whole go, but it can be an ongoing one that you just need to revisit for under one hour when you have the time. Plus, it’ll help preserve the environment too since you’re reusing unused items instead of throwing them away.
