10 Productive Ways to Spend Time On the Web
Everyone is spending a lot of time on the web right now due to COVID-19. It’s so easy to get sucked down wormholes of meaningless content, like TikTok videos. If you want to spend your time a little more productively, here are a few suggestions to get you started.
Be Certifiably Productive
What better way to know you’re being productive than actually getting a certification? Many healthcare workers, teachers, and nannies are required to renew their CPR certification every year or two years. It’s easy to put it off, especially if you take a class in person.
Use your free time right now to get your CPR certification online. These reasonably priced classes will allow you to dust off your skills to be prepared for any emergency, and you can check that off your to-do list without ever leaving your house.
Have you been wondering about your neighbors who maybe were fighting a little too loud, or wanting to make sure your son is safe when he goes over to his best friend’s house? Taking the time to lookup mugshots online is actually quite a productive way to spend your time. Having information for yourself never hurts, and can help you inform personal decisions, like if you should move or if you can let your child hang out at certain houses. GoLookUp allows you to see arrest records, background checks, phone numbers, email addresses, and more. Stay informed and make smart choices.
Drive Off Into the Sunset
Well, you can’t drive off into the sunset quite yet. First, you need a great car to do it in! Do a little research and find the lowest-rate car loans available from different lenders. If you didn’t think a new car was possible, you might be surprised after you do a little research and see what kind of loan you could get.
Furnish your Future
Why not dream a little about your furnishing your home? Visualize your ideal environment and compare the prices online. It’s shocking how differently priced cube units can be from different vendors.
Level Up Your Skills
Are you a little rusty on the guitar? Take an online class or watch a tutorial. There are many programs to choose from, some are even free. You’ll be strumming along like never before.
Catch Up with Friends and Family
Nothing beats spending time with the people you care about through an online medium such as Google Duo or the Facebook Portal. You’ll feel like you spent your time well just taking a moment to touch base.
Spread the Wealth
Go to a page like Indiegogo or GoFundMe. Read their stories, watch their videos, and pick a cause, project, or person to support. In these difficult financial times, if you have the money to help someone grow, why wouldn’t you? Even a small amount can add up to big change.

Get LinkedIn Up to Date
Be honest, when was the last time you actually updated your LinkedIn profile? Even if you’re not looking for a job, you never know who’s looking for you. Take twenty minutes and update all of your information. Sometime down the road when you get to switch to a higher paying job, you’ll thank your past self for taking the time.
