  • We live in an age where food, which used to take us hours to obtain, can be delivered to your doorstep in under 30 minutes.

  • Never in the history of mankind have we had this much free time on our hands until now.

  • Yet, it's sad to say, but the majority of us waste it.

  • We turn on our TV or our gaming console, we medicate ourselves with weed, alcohol, drugs, and pornography just to burn time.

  • What a complete waste.

  • What should you really be doing with all of this free time?

  • Well, if you are even the slightest bit serious about becoming a winner in the game of life, here are the four most important things you need start spending your time on.

  • Number one is exercise.

  • Now this first task is crucial.

  • With so much free time on our hands, we need to have the energy to be active during this time.

  • A few centuries ago we used to move around and lift things.

  • Almost all of our jobs required us to work out our bodies, whether it'd be tending to the farms or creating tools in the workshop.

  • But now most of us work behind computer screens and registers.

  • We aren't getting the right amount of exercise that our body needs to function properly.

  • It's actually been proven by studies that people who workout have more energy throughout the day.

  • If you don't have energy, you are gonna spend the majority of your free time on effortless things like Netflix and gaming.

  • A simple workout program like Starting Strength is enough for you to get started on improving your fitness and gaining more energy throughout the day.

  • Number two is Reading

  • I know, I know. You have probably heard this advice a hundred times over...

  • But hear me out. The stuff that you are learning in school is outdated.

  • The large majority of information you are learning over there will not be used once you graduate.

  • This means that the vast majority people don't know what in the world they are doing.

  • Real-life knowledge like managing finances, social skills, dating, diet, and fitness are basically non-existent among the population.

  • And in my opinion, this is actually a very good thing for you.

  • This means that you can easily climb to the top because, well, your competition kinda sucks...

  • A famous entrepreneur once said that you can become an expert in any field by reading just three books.

  • On the subject, by simply reading three books, you'll know more about any subject than 99% of people out there.

  • Look, if you wanna succeed at the game of life, you have to read the instructions manual.

  • Focus your reading on self-development books as they provide practical knowledge that can be applied in real life.

  • Number three is meditation.

  • Meditation is one of those things that have been proven a hundred times over to be extremely beneficial.

  • Yet, nobody does it. Why?

  • Well, it's probably because on the surface it's one the most boring tasks out there.

  • You sit down, and you do nothing, right?

  • Well, there's a lot more to it.

  • When you meditate you are actually training your brain. You learn how to control what thoughts to focus on and which thoughts to ignore.

  • This one skill is crucial to becoming a happier person.

  • You'll also have a lot more mental energy throughout the day.

  • It's so important actually, that if you have to ask me which one habit could change your life, I'd instantly respond with meditation.

  • Meditating for just 10 minutes a day is more than enough to start reaping the benefits.

  • Number four is a hobby slash passion.

  • It's my strong belief that everyone has a passion that triggers the inner child in them.

  • It's something that brings out a sort of excitement in you. Instead of dreading the time spent on it.

  • You kinda get lost in the exploration.

  • The reason I listed this as the last task is because the other three supplement your ability to work on your hobby or your passion.

  • Reading gives you the knowledge to grow in your hobby.

  • Meditation gives you the headspace for creativity.

  • And exercise ultimately gives your body the energy to focus on this hobby even after a long day of work.

  • This hobby, whether it'd be dance, art, writing, creating your own make-a-wish foundation.

  • Whatever it is, is your source of fulfillment.

  • Without it you will not feel whole.

  • You will feel as if there's something missing in your life.

  • And it's my strong belief that if you work on your hobby long enough and hone your craft, it can eventually be a source of income.

  • Once you reach this stage, your life will transform from one that you dread into one that excites you.

  • And that's it guys. These four tasks in my opinion, are the four most important things you should focus on in your free time.

  • If you want a more detailed breakdown of any of these, check out my channel Improvement Pill for more in-depth videos.
