We all have moments when we need help using our time wisely. Some activities seem less productive or even a bit silly. We all have unique ways of spending time, but some actions might make us scratch our heads. A user asked on a forum, “In your opinion, what is the dumbest way to spend time?”
Here are some responses he got!
SITTING IN TRAFFIC
“I stopped driving and started biking to work, slashed my commute by half the time, and got great exercise.”
ARGUING PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET
“I do it sometimes and feel dumb afterward even though I know I’m goddamn right.”
SCROLLING UP AND DOWN
“Mindless scrolling where you don’t even pay attention is a time waste. How many of us even remember what we saw yesterday on Reddit.”
CONVERSATION WITH PARTNER
“With a partner that doesn’t care about you, and that starts a conversation with you and forgets that you are there.”
“Especially the ones with low RTP (return to player). You walk into a casino and see the slots of players, all with lifeless eyes. That thing is depressing to look at.”
SPENDING TIME ON PHONES AND OTHER DEVICES
“Spending time staring (literally staring) straight at your phone/other electronic devices when you’re near your friends (on a car, bus, or other things) instead of talking to them (the worst one could be on a date).”
“Scrolling through social media is a brainless waste of time. That being said, I use Reddit daily.”
COMPLAINING AND DOING NOTHING TO FIX IT
“Complaining about something and doing nothing to fix it. People make it their life to be a victim of circumstance. It’s fine to try and fail, not so much to never try.”
DEBATING WITH OTHERS
“Debating someone is an opportunity to understand their views if you are open-minded and curious. Whether or not that person benefits from debating with you is only a secondary benefit.”
LAYING IN BED
“Laying in bed stuck on social media. Being depressed or sad and sitting in those draining thoughts. Not getting out of bed when you need to accomplish things.”
WATCHING FOX NEWS
“The most ignorant way to waste time is watching Fox News. It’s not only the dumbest way to waste time; it’s also the most dumbing way to waste time. It’s like an iron that smooths out brain wrinkles.”
WATCHING REALITY TV SHOWS
“Watching reality tv. Watching dumb low-level people scheme and argue rots the brain.”
WASTING TIME ON OTHERS THOUGHTS
“Spending time worrying about what other people think of you.”
