We live in a world where electronics are always in our faces. From pumping gas at the local gas station to visiting the doctor’s office, screens are constantly in our faces. While electronics have their place and they do make life a bit easier, they can deter us from being creative.
You see, people who spend fewer hours in front of electronics tend to have higher creativity skills which lead to an improved life. The more time you spend outside or participating in real-life interactions with people, the better you feel!
Today we’re sharing some tips to help you learn new ways to entertain yourself without electronics. These tips will help you put down the smartphone and laptop so that you can embrace the life and people you have right here, right now.
Host a Cook-Off
This is the perfect activity for the summer season. Gather up the family and friends; have them bring over their grills. Everyone who is joining will try to create a grilled recipe and then let everyone taste test it.
You can host this with various rewards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place to make it more competitive. This is a fun way to get outdoors and enjoy some delicious food. You’ll also enjoy the company of great friends and family while you host this cook-off to entertain yourself without electronics.
Take a Bike Ride
Get in touch with your inner child and get out your bicycles. You can go for a long bike ride at a local bicycle trail or go up a mountain where they allow bikers. Bike riding can improve mental health and gives you some exercise away from home.
The change of scenery will be good for your soul, too! Having a bike ride every week with friends or family is a fabulous way to get some entertainment as you navigate difficult terrain on your bike for the first time.
Perform a Play
This is a fun activity to do when you have kids or adults in the home that love the arts and theater. Have everyone work together to write a script. Gather the old clothing from closets, and make up for the perfect play performance ever.
Feel free to take this one step beyond just a play at home and enact the play outside for the whole neighborhood to enjoy. This is a fun way to test your creativity and enjoy some laughter with good friends and family.
These are just a few creative ways to entertain yourself without electronics on a warm summer day. We hope that our list of ideas has helped your mind start thinking of other ways to have some fun without electronics.
