Announcing the last blog post in this series ‘What To Do’!
This Friday I will post the last post in this series. It has been amazing how sharing about life with you has caused a ripple effect in my life.
Personally, I have been more joyful and busy with everyday life. More vocal and involved on social media.
Thank you for letting me share my ramblings. Giving you ideas on ‘What To Do’.
As an introvert, this new time of life that we have found ourselves in has been somewhat easy for me. I still miss seeing my friends and family. I am going a little bit stir crazy myself. This is partly of my own doing…lol!
My Next Series – Wellness
As we move forward with our lives, there is going to be a new normal in everyday living.
It is important that we do not live in fear. There is a lot to be done for our physical, emotional, and mental well being.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
My last post from my ‘What To Do’ series will post this Friday after 5:30PM CST.
I love listening to my music, and I really enjoy creating my own playlists.
Creating a playlists for music legitimately can take a chunk of time. Let me walk you through my process.
I think about these questions.
What type of playlist do you want to create? Do you want your music to be just one genre? Do you want there to be a theme?
How many songs do you want there to be – 25/50/100? In my opinion, the longer the better.
Once I decide genre or theme, I start scrolling through my library and adding songs.
I can get lost doing this. It can take up to an hour or so to add all the songs that I desire into one playlist.
Steps for Creating a New Playlist in iTunes
1. Open iTunes
2. To create a new playlist – Go to File > New > (Click on) Playlist
4. Name your playlist
5. Once you name your playlist, it is automatically added under ‘Music Playlists’ under the left side panel.
6. Now, click on the playlist name.
7. (Optional Step) I suggest clicking on the blue circle with 3 centered dots (to the right of the playlist name). Select the ‘Open in New Window’. Then you can drag and drop songs/albums into your playlist.
8. If you do not want to open your blank playlist in a new window, you can continue to select/add music by left clicking and adding to your new playlist, or you can drag and drop to the playlist name on the left side panel.
Some days I prefer listening to podcasts rather than my music.
Did you know you can create a playlist for your podcasts?
It is the same steps as above to create a new playlist for listening to your podcasts.
Hope you have some fun creating some new playlists!
I have enjoyed writing this series. I had a handful of ideas left to write about and realized each post would amount to a few minuscule blog posts. That is why I chose to combine them into one post. When I saw that this would my tenth post, I thought this would be a great way to end this series.
More Ideas for ‘What To Do’
Normally, the limited amount of time before the work day begins provides little time to fix a nutritious breakfast. Usually, I would grab and go. What about you? Now, there is plenty of time to fix a normal breakfast.
When you work a normal 9 to 5 job, there is not as much time to allow for reading. How many books do have on a ‘To Read’ or ‘Want to Read’ list? Now there is a little bit more time to catch up and read some of the books that you have on your list.
Personally, I spend a lot of time working on the computer.
My prefered method of reading is on a device like my Kindle. When my eyes are tired after a long day of work, the last thing I really want to do is look at another screen so I listen to audiobooks.
Have more game nights. There are tons of card and board games to be played.
