Things to do while watching TV, TikTok, Netflix, etc.

Posted by

I’m setting my phone to link me to this list every time I open entertainment apps.

Get moving, sitting kills

  • Pacing
  • Push-ups
  • Squats
  • Planks
  • Sit-ups
  • Leg raises
  • Stretching
  • Balance
  • Exercise bike

Get creative

  • Drawing in response to what I’m watching
  • Coloring
  • Pause and try out acting the part
  • Clay sculpting

Get productive

  • Do dishes
  • Brush pets
  • Clean
  • Clothing modifications
  • Build something easy (like window blinds for my suv)

Get pampered

  • Manicure
  • Pedicure
  • Facial
  • Massage chair

Get outside

  • Fresh air
  • Vitamin D
  • Expand my microbiome

Get language skills

  • English captions while listening in another language
  • Captions and audio in another language
  • Eventually… listen in just the new language!
  • Movie or show made by native speakers would be best… get truer sense of language, culture, etc.

Get good done?

  • Are there any mindless volunteer tasks I could do? Where do I find these? Focus of volunteer listings seems to be on engaging volunteer opportunities. How do I find mindless work to do for the benefit of others during my screen time?
