Wallman suggests that volunteering, unplugging from digital devices, learning new skills, and making new memories through experiences are some ways of using one's free time in order to have a happier and more meaningful life. These are also some ways that happier people spend their free time.
How Successful People Spend Their Free Time
Successful people spend their free time through meditation, physical exercise, reading, listening to podcasts, vacation, taking classes, spending time with family and friends, volunteering, and working on creative pursuits.
Successful people also spend their free time strengthening their networks by attending networking events. They also spend their free time at night planning their next day. This ensures that what they need to accomplish will be accomplished.
Successful people use their free time by pursuing their hobbies. For example, Richard Branson spends his free time playing chess with his kids on Necker Island, Jack Dorsey of Twitter spends his Saturday free time hiking, Bill Gates spends free time with Warren Buffet playing bridge, and Steve Wozniak spends time playing Segway polo.
Aside from that, they also never stop learning. That's why their free time is also used for learning new things as they read books, listen to podcasts, and take classes.
Summary of Early Findings
We have provided some information on how people spend their free time. We have assumed a global view for this research. The examples are not specific to any geographic location. If a more targeted view is desired, for example, a US focus, this will have to be communicated to us in the reply.
