Things To Do When In Line


This article was sent in by John Hawthrone. I found this piece quite interesting, informative and inspiring. Do sit back and ENJOY this beautiful piece! 

One of the most frustrating things for many people around the world is having to wait in line to get served. Rather than getting completely stressed out I have put together a list of different activities you can do to relieve the stress and make it a more enjoyable experience.

Get To Know The People Next To You In Line

One of the best ways of passing time is having great conversations with people that you have not met before. You will find that most people are open to a conversation and if you are lucky you could have a lot in common. You may end up making a friend for life and or discover interesting things that you did not previously have knowledge about. 

Reading A Book

Reading either a book is a fantastic way to enjoy the experience of waiting in line.It is easier to do than ever before with books available to download direct to your phone, iPad or you can simply take a paperback book with you when you know that you will be waiting around for a long time. 

Communicate With Friends On Social Media And Update Your Profile

Most people these days are on at least one social media site. With many of them such of facebook, you can chat to your friends who are also online to help pass the time. You can also update your status and comment, like, dislike or share posts. Who knows your post may go viral and you will pick up a whole bunch of new followers.


If you have not tried meditation I fully recommend it as it is a powerful way of dealing with life stress. It is not something that you can pick up instantly and you will need to practice it to be good at it. Once good enough you can find an inner peace and the minutes will fly by.

Answer Work & Personal Emails

We live in a digital world where it is virtually impossible to keep up with all the daily emails we receive. You can use the time waiting in line productively by answering work related emails or answering ones from friends that you have not been able to find the time to get around to.

 Reach Out To Old Friends

Everyone has friendships that they have let slide which they did not mean to do so. You can use the time that you are waiting in line to reach out to someone who you still wish that you had a close friendship with. Having people in your life that fully understand you along with enjoying each other company is one of the most valuable things you can have in life.

Watch YouTube Videos

One of my favorite things to do when waiting in line is to watch YouTube videos. There are millions of videos on every different type of thing you can think of. You can use it to educate yourself on certain subjects or just watch funny videos. The choices are endless and it will help you enjoy the experience.
