Have you ever heard the saying "A watched pot never boils"? If you are cooking, and you stand by the pot watching and waiting for the water to boil, the wait can seem endless. The same thing applies to a download. If something is downloading on your computer, and you sit and watch the bar slowly creep across your computer screen, the download can seem to take forever! While the download is in progress, it is best to do something while you wait. There are a number of things that you can do that will make the time seem to pass faster.

One thing you might try is running. You can run outside, where you will get some fresh air and get to see what your neighbors are up to. They might be washing their cars, for example. You might get to see the cars go from very dirty to very clean in a short time. You can also run inside, where you can avoid traffic, stray dogs, and extreme temperatures. If you run outside, it is safer to run without music. That way, you can hear what is going on around you. You can hear a car coming up behind you, for example, and move out of the way to avoid getting hurt. Whether you choose to run inside or outside, your run will allow you to burn some calories. It will also keep you healthy. Finally, it may set your creativity in motion. You can choose from your collection of music and have a great run. In addition to running, there are other things that you can do, as well.

Another thing you might do during the download is begin fixing dinner. Fix a meal in your crockpot, such as chicken and dumplings, for example. As it cooks, a delicious aroma will begin filling the air. You will be able to smell dinner cooking as you wait for your download to finish.

Finally, you can clean your house. You can do your laundry and sweep and mop your floor. A clean house that is free of clutter and smells good will make it easier to do your work.

Check your computer. By now, your download should be done, and your computer should be ready to use. Best of luck with your work. May you publish many articles, earn enough money to have a great life, and get many followers who eagerly anticipate your next article.
