Ways To Pass The Time While House - Sitting
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you have family, friends, or neighbors who often travel for business or pleasure, you know that they want their house to be safe while they are away. If you are available, you may be asked to house-sit for them. While house-sitting, you will need to take messages from anyone who calls. You will also need to pick up the mail and any packages that arrive. Other than that, however, the time is yours to do as you wish. What do you do to pass the time until the homeowners return?

There are the normal ways to pass the time, such as by keeping up with your favorite shows, like “America’s Got Talent”; reading a bestseller, like James Patterson’s Kiss the Girls; watching DVDs, or by playing a game on Facebook. However, you might consider using your housesitting time to pursue other activities.

One project that you might consider is starting a blog. A blog would be a great way to pass the time, especially if you really enjoy writing. You can engage in an activity that you love, and you can earn money while doing it. As you write and publish more articles, you will build followers, who will be eager to see your next article. It will be exciting to watch your earnings grow, and the money will help you to pay your bills. Write about what you know and love. In addition to starting a blog, there are other pursuits to consider, as well.

Another idea for something to do is to learn the lyrics to your favorite song. Perhaps you like Katy Perry’s song, “Roar”, for example. You might, therefore, want to learn its lyrics. Once you have learned them, you can then sing the song. Singing is healthy, and it will boost your mood.

Another way to stay healthy while housesitting is to work out. By working out regularly, you can manage your stress and watch your weight. When you notice that you feel calm rather than nervous, and you see that you have lost some weight, you should feel good. Although you are watching a loved one’s home, there should be no reason why you should have to stay at the house the entire time that you are there. Be sure to get out, and have some fun. As long as you are not gone too long, it should be alright to step away from the house for a bit.

One idea for something to do away from the house is to go see a movie. Perhaps there is a movie that your friends have been talking about or that you have been reading rave reviews of online. You might want to go see this movie. You might also have other movies that you have been wanting to see. Consider getting some money together for an outing like this. At the theatre, you can enjoy a laugh or maybe get a good scare. In addition to movies, there are other activities that you can enjoy while you are out.

Another idea is to go to the mall. There you can walk, you can enjoy being around others, and you can shop for items that you like, such as books or perfume. Going to the mall will be fun, and it will give you a change of scenery.

Then, after your outing, you can head back to the house. You will be tired, but you will feel better after having some fun. You can then continue doing what you have been asked to do.
