Top Ten Things To Do When You Lose Internet

You can say, “I can survive a day without the Internet or without my phone!” all you want, but when the Internet isn’t there, you forget just how much you actually rely on it.

Top Ten Things To Do When You Lose Internet

1. Read a book

Internet or no Internet, always read.

2. Go outside

Take a walk the spring, take a swim in the summer, breath in the fall air, or build a snowman. No matter what it’s like out there, outside is a great place to be.

3. Watch TV

Sorry, Netflix, cable will have to do.

4. Play a board game or a video game

Most video games have Internet features, but you don’t have to use them to play the main game. If friends or family are around, play a board game. There’s some good quality bonding right there.

5. Color

Who doesn’t like coloring? I mean, come on.

6. Listen to music

Lie in bed and daydream. Or dance. Dancing is good.

7. Write

You can’t do research, but Word doesn’t need the Internet. Neither does a notebook and pen.

8. Call someone on the phone

When was the last time you actually called a real person and not texted them? Let someone hear your voice. Hear a human’s voice in return. I hate talking on the phone, but trust me, it’s good for you.

9. Rearrange the house

Just wait until your parents or spouse or roommate or whoever you live with come home from work. They’ll love it, I’m sure.

10. Work on a puzzle

Jigsaw puzzles are good for you. And fun.

What do you do when you can’t surf the web?

Top Ten Ways To Avoid Writing

Ever have one of those days when you just don’t feel like writing? Maybe you have a lot of those days?

They say to write every day, even if it’s just a little bit. But it’s nice to have a break once in a while, too.

1. Talk a walk

Fresh air is good air.

2. Watch TV

Watch a movie for two hours or binge watch a TV show for 24 hours. Do what your heart desires.

3. Play video games

Who doesn’t love video games?

4. Play cards a board game

And who doesn’t love board games?

5. Read a book

If you feel guilty for not writing, this is the closest thing you can get to it. Have fun.

6. Go out with friends or family

Social lives are scary but are ultimately important.

7. Play with your pets

They need love and attention too. Especially when you stare at that shiny box and ignore them all day.

8. Clean

A clean home is a happy home.

9. Take a nap

Because you were up all night writing, right? I won’t say anything if you won’t.

10. Listen to music

This is one the best ways to clear your mind and relax.

What do you do when you’re not writing? Or trying to avoid it?
