5 Important Things You Should Try Doing Online
We are blessed to live in a world where there is an overwhelming number of ways to be entertained, and just as many ways to discover new things and explore various interests. Unfortunately, more often than not, we waste our time online by browsing through videos and websites that are anything but productive. However, there are productive, important things you can do online too. Without straying away from the matter at hand, here are 5 important things you should try doing online.
- Give learning games a try
It is essential for you to exercise and stimulate your brain regularly. There are a large number of websites online that make it fun to learn. For instance, Khan Academy makes it fun to learn math, science, history, economics etc. DuoLingo.com makes it fun to pick up a new language. And, if you are curious about coding and programming, you should give the site, CodeSchool.com, a try. The site allows you to learn programming by doing.
- Participate in online games that help the world
There are many productive online games you can play that can help the world literally. These online games require you to be successful in the game to help a good cause of some sort, from helping the poor to helping achieve certain scientific discoveries. For instance, if you head to FreeRice.com, and give a correct answer to a quiz question, the owners of the site donate 10 grains of rice to the hungry and needy. The rice is funded by the advertisement on the site.
- Change your address online
Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t take you a long while to change your address. The process is not as complicated as people would have you believe. We are fortunate to live in a digital age where it is possible to change addresses online. Basically, all you will need to do is to visit the site, USPS.com/move, and follow basic instructions. It also helps that you are sent an email confirmation of the change from the responsible authorities. If you need help with changing your address, you can also visit the site, changeaddressmailing.com.
- De-stress by using the Google Street View
Do you know that daydreaming can also be productive? It can serve as a stress buster. Hence, if you are stressed from work and cannot concentrate on important matters, we would advise you to go around the world on Google Street View. Google Street View is the perfect virtual window for you to de-stress and think of your next getaway. You can visit many places in less than 20 minutes with Google Street View.
- Earn extra money?
We have never heard of anyone rejecting extra money. And, if you want to make quick money on the internet, since you´re on the internet anyway, why don´t you consider providing your services online as a freelancer? Are you an expert in content marketing? Are you an awesome app developer? Or, are you an SEO expert? If you are an expert in a specific field, you can charge more for your specialized services.

I have wanted to try blogging or writing reviews, but with my health issues, i’m afraid I won’t stay committed. To me, that’s important! Plus I am not and interesting person anymore. The only things I talk about lately are my health issues, pain, family and Our Heavenly Father!! HE is not boring!! But, unfortunately, not too many people want to hear about HIM! I love playing games on my good days. They are relaxing.
