Some of us may not even have enough time to spare in a day let alone kill time but there are certain hours everyday which are considered 'dead' especially if it involves long hours of commuting via public transport. How do you kill your time effectively or what's the best way to spend the 'dead' time?
When commuting: reading books, chatting on the phone, sending text messages, looking out in nature, checking my diary/clarifying to do lists and listening to music on my iPod/watching YouTube videos on my phone. When waiting in line, go over your plans, and note down any worthy business ideas.
Tablet is the most effective tool to make the best use of the long hours while commuting. You can browse internet, read news, read ebooks, play favorite games, listen to music etc. There are so many things you can do and soon you will find the time is too short.
I find it difficult to read while travelling but listening to a recorded book is interesting and you are free to look around at your surroundings.
I like to make up games to fill in time. Sometimes I try to remember an increasing list of items, or I imagine stories about people around me. Who are they, where are they going, what has happened to them today., what is their life, are they secretly a criminal, do they have a crush on a work colleague. The more ridiculous the better. My sister and I like to talk to strangers and see how much we can encourage them to tell us about themselves- usually focusing on asking about happy events so you make their day better too.
