25:What are some fun things to go out and do for free?

There are many fun activities you can enjoy for free. Here are some ideas:

  1. Visit a local park or nature reserve: Take a walk, have a picnic, or enjoy the beauty of nature.
  2. Explore your city or town: Go for a stroll and discover exciting landmarks, street art, or historical sites.
  3. Attend community events: Check local listings for free concerts, festivals, art exhibitions, or outdoor movie screenings.
  4. Go hiking or biking: Find nearby trails or biking paths and enjoy some outdoor exercise and fresh air.
  5. Visit a museum or art gallery on a free admission day: Many museums offer free entry on certain days or times. Take advantage of these opportunities to explore art, history, or science.
  6. Attend free workshops or classes: Look for free workshops or classes offered by community centers, libraries, or local businesses. You can learn something new or develop a hobby.
  7. Have a beach day: If you live near a coast or a lake, spend a day at the beach. Relax, swim, build sandcastles, or have a picnic.
  8. Explore local markets: Visit farmers’ markets, flea markets, or artisanal markets in your area. You can enjoy browsing unique products and talking to local vendors.
  9. Organize a game night or potluck: Invite friends or family over for a fun evening of board games, card games, or a shared meal. It’s a great way to spend time together without spending money.
  10. Take advantage of library resources: Borrow books, audiobooks, or DVDs from your local library. Many libraries also offer free events, such as author talks or book clubs.

Remember, the availability of these activities may vary depending on your location and current circumstances. It’s always a good idea to check local listings, websites, or community boards for upcoming free events and activities in your area.

Riding a bike through a nature trail.

Go to your local library.

Take the kids to a park and interact.

Find a quiet place outside and do yoga or observe nature.

Finding a way to help others.

If you like animals, go volunteer at a local animal shelter.

The parks are a fantastic place to start. Visiting local or distant parks to learn more about where you live. In San Francisco, Recreation and Parks has excellent things to do. They have free Zumba classes throughout the city every day. They have walks with guides on the weekends. There are concerts, learning about nature, sports, etc. There is a pickleball for seniors and tennis for the younger set.

I like the libraries for what they offer. Libraries, at least when I was working for them, were trying to re-position themselves as cultural centers with the rise of the digital world. Yes, they have books and mags. But they also have anything you can get digitally for free from the library. In California, they have a program called ‘Discover and Go,’ which allows free access to ticketed venues with your library card. Also, the park services have issued a free pass you can check out to get into the state parks. The libraries only get more relaxed as time goes on. Check it out!

In San Francisco, we have event services, like Johnny Fun Cheap and Eventbrite, to help you get on board with what’s happening around town for free or at a minimal cost. They send out weekly emails, but you have to get on their list. Or your local providers.

With the advent of Zoom, it’s possible to get outside and be in a digital class anywhere. Athletic, spiritual, artistic, or just listening while you walk on a new audiobook from the library.

If you see something you’re interested in, ask the people who are doing it how to join. That’s how I joined my Tai Chi Dance group while not belonging to that culture or language. Some of the ladies speak English, and I find out what’s going on through them. I love this group, and I am six months into it!!!! They meet every day for 1.5 hours outside, and it’s free!

There are usually too many things to do in a city! People in the countryside might have to be more savvy in finding what interests them.

25:What are some fun things to go out and do for free?

Contact the various museums in your area to see if you qualify for free entry (some have age-based fees, resident-based, or income-based, and some are entirely free).

Look for historic places/parks and tour them.

Get some paper and pencils and try drawing outdoors (in your yard, your street, the nearest park, etc).

Go to a park or mall and people-watch.

Go to a park or backyard and see how many birds you can identify.

Check science groups looking for citizen scientists. They often have requests for people to do things like find invasive species, count birds or turtles, etc.

Go out to several places to find the best place to watch a sunset. Or sunrise. That depends on your schedule.

If there’s a park open at night, look at the stars and moon with fewer artificial lights around. If you live out in the country, look for a field you can access at night.

Contact your local parks about free programs. Some of them have nature walks, etc.

Go to your local library and see what they have. Sometimes, you can sit and read. Or they may have free programs or other materials to check out.

25:What are some fun things to go out and do for free?

Tons of stuff. You can pack a lunch and go to the park and have a picnic. Go to the animal shelter and play with some pups. Go out to a lake or wooded area and take pictures of what you see. Take some chalk and draw on the sidewalk. Get all dressed up for no reason, go to the mall, and watch people smile at you. Go to a lake with a net and try to catch a fish. Dig out your old roller skates and see if you can go out and come home without an injury 🤕. Just use your imagination. There are lots of fun things to do for free.

How do you find exciting activities to do in your free time?

‘Free time’ is an unknown mythical creature that I am seeking in my world these days. Yes, that creature did exist in abundance once upon a time. But as responsibilities began to pollute my life’s flora and fauna, ‘free time’ started depleting day after day, and before I knew it, it was days after I remember catching a long-lost glimpse of it in the horizon.

Didn’t I try damage control? Oh, one would wish! I was a fool, under the impression that I wouldn’t hop on to the bandwagon ‘lack of time’ that so many people talked about in those days. But here I am, six months later, writing my very first post/ answer of 2017, the last answer biting the dust somewhere in my timeline in October 2016.

What happened, did you ask? Well, I certainly did not push myself to overwork, binge-eating, and futile socializing like the rest ( I have managed to restrain myself from these, which is an achievement, whew!). But I certainly have a plethora of other activities to spend my precious awake hours on. My peanut-paying job in an MNC will not be sufficient to go a notch over making bare ends meet. I’ve given in to part-time freelancing, which takes up most of my outside-office hours. In whatever little time that remains, I am trying hard to ‘be an adult’- groom myself, try to keep that tummy in control, and organize my stuff. The latter is the latest obsession bug I’ve been bitten with. Maybe it was Monica from FRIENDS. You cannot blame her. I spend my free time in front of the laptop, my hands automatically taking me to the ‘Series’ folder, holding yet another folder labeled ‘Friends.’ Can you blame me for not letting my brain work for a few minutes and letting my brain enjoy some good old mindless comedy for a few minutes that I get for myself? Cooking at home is also something new that I’ve tried and am liking.

Weekends, you ask? Wouldn’t it be brutal to spend the entire week working and not sacrifice the weekend for my family? Not to mention the goo that has accumulated in the crevices of my room and clothes that I absolutely need to wash every week.

But I am guilty. Though I’ve refrained from falling for social networking sites and WhatsApp, my fingers are constantly scrolling through an abundance of apparel websites on the internet. I guess now I know what it feels like to be addicted.

But this was not why I was here. I wanted to list down everything I would like my counterpart in a utopic parallel world with more than 24 hours in a day to do.

  1. Learn a new language.

Even after days of the Duolingo bird staring me in my face from my home screen, I’ve hardly managed 700 XP in French and about 100 XP in Spanish. I plan to complete both courses someday.

2. Read ‘A Song Of Ice and Fire,’ complete the Bartimaeus series, the Kingkiller Chronicles, reread Harry Potter, and wear away my now dust-laden Kindle someday due to ‘excessive reading’ if something like that exists in certainty.

3. Write answers on Quora every day.

4. Exercise diligently both in the morning and the evening. Take a walk in the wee hours of the morning and greet the sunrise. Continue walking in the late hours of the night, talking to deserted alleys and lone street lights as yet another day gets shelved in the pages of history.

5. Write for a popular website, newspaper, or magazine.

6. Form two of my websites:

One for accepting freelance jobs and requests. The other one is to write about anything under the sun.

7. Play badminton after office hours with my roommates in the evening. ( This is going to remain a dream forever.)

8. Finish off the TV series. Starting with Death Note, Silicon Valley, and catching up with Suits. The Originals and treating myself to Sherlock and Game of Thrones again.

9. Be done with all-time classic Hollywood movies. I don’t have a list yet.

Dear other-me in the parallel world, which has plenty of time to read this post, please fulfill all my wishes because I am on our deathbed; I don’t want this list to fall under ‘wishes.’

I want them to be listed under ‘experiences.’

How do you find exciting activities to do in your free time?

Let me share some of the hacks that I use during breaks. These hacks refresh my mind and unleash the boast of productivity and creativity inside me.

I have been using these hacks for a while now, and I have encountered their benefits myself. Some of these I stole from the great books that I have read and read. “Think and Grow Rich,” The 5 Am Club,” and the one I am reading/listening to nowadays, “Atomic Habits’.

Since I am a productivity geek and I always want to use my time to the fullest, to my dreams and those special moments, these hacks aid me in achieving that prideful moment.

Here are a few things that I do to make my breaks exciting and productive at the same time.

  1. I Visualize – Suppose I have planned to learn one chapter by today, and by this break time, I have already completed half the chapter, but as time goes by, I am getting tired and less motivated. In this case, I take a minute and visualize the whole process I will follow to complete the chapter and think about the moment of satisfaction when I will finally complete the chapter.
  2. The chances of completing the chapter today itself will increase by 30% just by visualizing the process and sensing the satisfaction of achieving it. Now I know what feast is awaiting me after completing the chapter today.
  3. I make a habit – People might say follow the 21-day rule since I have an MA in psychology; as per psychology, “To make any habit it takes about 21 days of consistency. I don’t feel it is true; instead, you need consistent determination and a driving force that is pushing you to do it.
  4. Forex – In the breaks, I make a habit of watching YouTube videos of people related to my domain. If I am scrolling through Instagram, then I follow my ideals so I can keep myself motivated to work.
  5. Be vigilant – I became strict and my own observant, to make atomic habits. If I work on a single thing (My goal) for the whole day, then I make sure to do something different in the break than the activity I do the entire day.
  6. For ex – I am writing my first novel, and I spend my entire day either doing research work, editing, or actual writing; then, during breaks, I do physical exercise like playing badminton, and during the days when I work 24 hours on my startup then I read in free-time. The idea is to divert my mind from the core activity for that period of break.
  7. Play with my dog/ Talk to the family – Enough time productivity. When I really don’t want to do anything, I spend time with this little boy, whom people say is a big boy. He often waits for my time when I am busy thumping my laptop keys. Or, more often, I sit with my father and mother in the living for break time.

Using these, I can use every bit of my time for that prestigious moment I want in my life to transpire one day out of my work, and along with I keep on having fun as a sidekick. I have been able to complete the first draft of my novel in merely 70 days.

The steps are small and have very influential long-term results. “Perseverance is the key.”

What are some fun things to go out and do for free?

I suppose you cannot beat walking in the pleasant countryside if you have access to it…even the local coast, beach, hill, woods, park, etc. can be great to spend time in. In good weather, you can make a day out of it, including a picnic.

You may bike or run outdoors if you wish to be fit and exercise. You may swim if you have access to a suitable body of water.

Or you can take pictures on your way…even a smartphone can take good pictures and you can improve your photography technique. A lot of landscape and nature photographers enjoy the outdoors this way. Some use the outdoors as inspiration for their paintings…so art is something that you can do.

You may watch birds if you are into them …or even identify and discover new plants. I use Google Lens for this and have a strong interest in knowing the names of native trees, shrubs…even weeds.

Some take their children and pets and see the outdoors as an area to play with them…for activities not possible in the home or yard. I would take a ball or Frisbee, even a kite… a lot of free fun in a group.

At night, you can do stargazing…with or without expensive telescopes and optical gear. As a child, I stayed up at night to identify the planets and stars against a chart of the night sky.

What are some cheap or free ways to have fun?

Here are some inexpensive and free ways to have fun:

  • Disc Golf: Look for a disc golf course near your home or where you travel. A starter disc is about $15-$20 and most courses are free.
  • Hiking or Walking: Look for local parks or hiking trails and check them out. It is suitable for your body, calming, and usually free.
  • Potlucks: Invite friends over and everyone brings a dish. The cost is shared, so it is not very expensive. You can also do theme nights this way.
  • Board Game Nights – you can buy board games at thrift shops quite inexpensively and they are great fun to play with family and friends

What can you do for fun in the city for free?

Most museums and art galleries in the UK are free admission.

I don’t think skateboarders or Parkour (free running) practitioners pay for making a nuisance of themselves.

Sit in a church and listen to the choir practice.

Sit in a park.

Get a sketchpad and some decent pencils and draw the architecture and people.

Ditto with a camera instead.

Try to trace the historical outlines, the culverted Rivers, the plague pits, and the city walls.

Make rubbings of maintenance holes and try to build an alphabet in cast iron.

Track down all the statues and public art, then go to the library to find their stories.

Become a busker, mime, living statue, or pavement artist.

What are some fun activities that don’t require any materials or costs?

Many fun activities don’t require any materials or costs. Here are some ideas:

  1. Take a walk: Go for a walk around your neighborhood or a local park. Take in the sights and sounds, and enjoy the fresh air.
  2. Play a game: There are many games you can play without any materials. Try playing games like Charades, 20 Questions, or I Spy.

  8. Have a conversation: Have a meaningful conversation with a friend or family member. Discuss your dreams, goals, and interests.
  9. Watch the stars: Find a spot where you can see the stars and spend some time stargazing. You can even download an app to help you identify the stars and constellations.
  10. Volunteer: You can volunteer your time and help out in your community without any costs. Offer to help clean up a local park or participate in a community service project.

What things should you not do to have fun when you have no money?

Look for trouble.

I worked at a factory that, when it closed down, laid off the 93 or so people who worked there. Amazingly, these semi-skilled factory workers who did nothing but bad mouth the company the entire time they worked there, cheating, looking for ways to get paid for doing nothing, and chiseling their time cards, still showed up at the shuttered factory almost every day to sit on the steps, drink beer and cause trouble. It wasn’t long before they were getting into fights. It wasn’t long before they were throwing rocks and beer bottles through the windows of the factory. It wasn’t long before they were breaking into the houses around the factory. It wasn’t long until the dark cars of the drug pushers showed up to peddle drugs or recruit drug peddlers. These are things not to do when you have no money.

If you have no money, then take up running as a hobby. It requires no exceptional clothing other than good sneakers, and you improve your body and clear your mind. If you have no money, go hiking in state parks. If you have no money, volunteer to work on a homeless van.

But don’t be idle, and don’t go looking for trouble – because you WILL find it.

What are some fun free stuff to do as a teenager?

  1. Go on a walk!

Take a friend with you or your dog (if you have one), take a long walk with some earbuds in, and jam out to some tunes! This is something I often do when I’m bored.

2. Go to the park!

Again, grab a friend and go! Anything can be fun when you’re with people you like to be around. Even the monkey bars you can touch with your forehead.

3. Bake something!

You don’t have to eat it if you don’t want to, but there are some cute three-ingredient treats that you can find on YouTube to make some snacks and treats for the week 🙂

4. Online shopping!

Again, you don’t need to buy anything, but do whatever you want! New wardrobe? New sports gear? Go wild with your imagination!

5. Invite a friend over!

6. Watch a movie!

What can I do to have fun? I have two days off and no money to spend.

  1. Go for a long walk in an area of your town or city where you have never been before. And when you do, and you come across some people who live there, stop and ask them what they like best about their neighborhood.
  2. Get a large garbage bag, go to a nearby park, and pick up trash that others have left behind.
  3. Go to the nearest library. Go to a library card and check out some books about a subject that interests you.
  4. If there is a river or lake nearby, prepare a lunch and spend some time eating lunch and observing the people around you.
  5. Visit the nearest mall and shopping center and take a stroll. Stop in at a place that interests you and pretend you are searching for a gift for a friend.
  6. Spend some time in the downtown or busy commerce center of your town or city. Find a bench or place to sit to enjoy people-watching.
  7. Go to the local coffee shop, sit with someone, and strike up a conversation. Most of these places will let you sit and not bother you.
  8. Visit a friend and ask them to show you some of their favorite homes they would like to live in someday.
  9. Please stop in at the nearest fire station and talk to the men and women who work there about the challenge and pride they have in their job.
  10. At the end of the day, make a silent list for yourself of all the things you are grateful for, and if you made a new friend, send them a note thanking them for talking with you. R
