5 Things To Do When You're Alone

I'm not alone very often, especially as I like to spend my weekends packed full of things to do with my boyfriend. Saying this, I do often have a spare few hours every couple of days to do what I want, so I've compiled some of my favourite activities to complete. Although none them are groundbreaking ideas I hope some of you feel inspired by them.  

Walking | There's nothing I enjoy more than walking, whether it's to catch Pokemon, have a stroll with music or to get snap-happy. I'm lucky as I have quite a lot of open areas around me with hills and large countryside walks which are perfect for photographing and exploring, but walking can be just as enjoyable in a town or city. Walking to your local park, shops or having a brief stretch around the block can all help to clear your mind and relieve stress. 

Tidying | Okay so this isn't the most riveting task, but it is the one that can be the most rewarding. Whether it's clearing out your wardrobe, dusting in places you've never thoughts of dusting or just having a general clean up, tidying can be a great way to motivate and set yourself up for the week ahead. 

Shopping | I'm not really a shopping centre kind of girl and I much prefer scrolling aimlessly through ASOS to find new picks to lust after. It can easily keep me occupied for hours whilst I save and unsave items and finally decide whether or not to spend a small fortune. I am currently lusting after a few new Autumnal pieces such as this ASOS Long Sleeved Striped Top and ASOS Cropped Jacket

To Do List | Once again, this isn't an activity that many people enjoy, but in fact I love writing to do lists as I love the satisfaction of ticking things off. Although these lists normally consist of work related tasks, they can involve a few me-time activities too, reading being one of my favourites to include. Even if the to-do list isn't for that specific day, I like to collecting all my thoughts in one place if I have an hour or two to spare. 

Exploring | I briefly touched upon this, but exploring your local town and city is a great way to kill a few hours and learn or find something new in the process. Pop down to your local town museum or go on a wander to a place you've never been to. Although this reminds me of being a child, print out a list of things you want to see like a train station or a horse chestnut tree and then go exploring trying to tick off as many as you can, photographing them as you go. Who knows you might end up with a stock pile of images and a lot of motivation.

What do you like to do when you're alone?
