I love watching TV more than just about anyone else I know, but it’s not exactly the most productive use of my time. Because of that, I love finding other productive things to do while I’m watching TV. Here are some you can try!
If you’re someone who really doesn’t enjoy working out, pair it with an activity you do enjoy. I love using the app SworkIt to help me with a quick workout while I have some entertainment on in the background. It helps the workout go way faster!
I love taking advantage of TV time to do some cleaning. I almost always do my laundry folding with the TV on. I also use commercial breaks to get up and load the dishwasher, run the vacuum, or do anything else that needs to get done around the house.
Write a Meal Plan and Grocery List
I’m diligent about meal planning and writing a grocery list before going grocery shopping. Since I like to filter through my recipe collection each week to pick out meals, watching TV is the perfect time to do this.
Paying bills is a bit of a necessary evil. There’s no reason not to partner the chore with an activity you enjoy more!
Write Your To Do List For Tomorrow
I love using my evening to prepare myself for the next day, which includes writing my to-do list. Sitting in front of the TV is the perfect opportunity to write a list of everything I need to get done the following day.
Give Your Pets Some Love
Giving your pets some love is definitely a productive activity – they can never get enough! It’s super easy to snuggle or play with the animals with a TV show on in the background.
At the end of the day, regardless of how many productive things you can accomplish, self-care is still important. Once you’ve crossed everything off your to-do list for the day take some time to just relax with your favorite show and a glass of wine.
These are just a few productive things to do while you watch TV – what are your favorites?
