We all waste time, it’s true. Wasting time can be a sort of therapy for a hectic life. But how do we know if we’re wasting our lives? It’s a subtle thing to be sure.

You’re doing what you normally do, but is it really living the full life you want?

Here are some signs that might help you admit that you’ve been wasting your life. How do I know?

Because I’ve been through each of them myself.

1. You waste time doing things you shouldn’t be.

You’ve had a long day at work. You get home, kick your shoes off, start dinner, and just want to unwind.

What do you do from here? Turn on some TV? Maybe play some video games? Cool! But where are you three hours later?

Are you still parked in front of the TV? Controller still in your hand? Dinner crusting itself onto plates in the sink?

Yeah, I’ve been there before. But you know what I realized over time? There’s a big world out there ready for me to experience it.

When I decided to stop wasting so much time on things I shouldn’t be wasting time on, I discovered new hiking trails, found new bars, made new friends, found the love of my life, and I haven’t looked back at my old life since.

But you know the best part? If I don’t feel like going out and being the best person I can be, I can still kick back and watch some television if I want.

Because I’m an adult and I run my own life, dammit.
