What do you usually do on your free time?

Being a stay home mom with two kids, I just usually do almost just the same things everyday. I would do my usual house chores from cooking to cleaning the house. During my free time in the afternoon, while my eldest is in the school and my 2 year old baby is sleeping I am usually in front of my computer, just surfing the net. I love to read interesting articles, get updated with current events may it be politics, sports or entertainment. It just relaxes me and makes me stress free. How about you? What do you do during your free time?

I usually have no spare time at all. However,if I do get the opportunity, I spend this time relaxing and listening to music. I also go online and start posting away here at Mylot. I make sure I do not do anything that will agitate me, as Mylot gives me the relaxation of the mind. I get to socialize as I have a lot of friends here.

In my spare time, I have always enjoyed to read, I like novels and history themes, sometimes, also about wild life, I do colect National Geographic since a long time. Sometimes, I like to play at the computer, and watch videos, when I am alone and bored, I like to see funny videos, specially with animals.

Hi! Thats great to see that you are making sure to put some time aside for yourself. That is so important and critical really for you to be the best mom you can be. Then in turn raising your children to be the best they can be also! I am also a stay at home mom to 4. And so my free time is limited. But when I do get some I crochet, make jewelry or write.

Hello aicasalinks! On my free time I like to read online with voice. I believe on voice we have something in plus to communicate than by writting. I use that to improve my spoken English too. I found even more native English speakers who really enjoy to read literature.I believe that is funier to be with someone, even online. If you will watch movies, read books, so on, in time you can became bored. I think that people will be good to communicate somehow, to be together, to help somehow each other. Hope to talk to you soon! Cata

I don't know how anyone can feel relaxed and stress free with all the bad stuff going on in the world. Every time I catch up on the news, there's a new story of someone killing another, children missing or abused and information on another celeb. getting arrest or in court. It's truly a sad world. I do surf the net daily to catch up on all this horrible info. because I want to stay informed. But I do find it aggravating. Glad you have some free time for yourself. Best Wishes!

Ah free time, I vaguely remember what that was. Actually I tend to do a fair bit right in my free time when it comes up. Sometimes it is a bit more than others. Still I tend to listen to a lot of music right in my free time. Of course, I listen to music as I work as well, because that allows me to concentrate, allows me to really get some enjoyment out of life. Surfing the Internet, perhaps a bit too much, but still there are a lot of things that are rather interesting on it. I tend to also like to hop right onto YouTube and watch some videos. There is some rather entertaining things right on that website, that rather amuses me to say the very least. On rare times I might play a computer game or two, but really not as much. And I read books. Cannot forget about that one.

It is not that I have a lot of free time, but when I do I like to read and write as much as I can! I like to write creative hubs that increase my statistics, while making me feel proud and fulfilled! I am fast approaching my 100th hub, so let me set about to writing it!

I usually study, but when I'm not doing that then I would try and earn some money online, like now on mylot. I am interested in increasing my earnings but I don' t have a mentor to teach me, but hopefully one day I will be able to earn $2k a month. Does anyone have experience?

What I usually do during my free time is I really spend it with my husband and daughter. I do have free time during Sunday, we go to church, on malls (just window shopping) and sometimes we go to shrine and other place wherein we find it comfortable to stay for a little time.

I don't have any free time too often. In fact, if people could leave me alone for a day or two, specially on a weekend, I would sneak back in the office and catch up on a lot of things. Unfortunately, I have tons going on right now. If ever, I would just like to do nothing. Maybe sit in front of the TV and doze off!

To be honest I hope I do have a free time..I work online and I have a business, so I guess I dwell more into it, and sometimes it gives me hard time to find one.. but if I have given a chance I would definitely go for a movie, maybe that would be my relation time..

Most of the time I don't do any outdoor activities besides going out with my friends. Most of my free time is spent surfing the internet, playing video games, watching movies, listening to music, reading books or programming. I also draw whenever I'm bored with the other stuff I've mentioned. I usually go to cafes, malls or the movies with my friends. Have a nice time myLotting!
