Find out where you came from

A really fun way to spend a lot of free time is to research your family tree. Most people really enjoy finding out about their ancestors and it definitely can take a long time to complete. A great place to start is a good public records site. Make sure it covers the state where your family currently lives and provides information on where to access vital records. For example, this Texas public records site would work if most of your family currently lives there. Another great resource is the U.S. Census data. There is a wealth of information in older census data that can provide a lot of clues as to where your ancestors came from.

Do some recreational reading

If you're not already spending a lot of time at the library, you definitely should. It's a great place to study, use the computer and work on group assignments. But it's also a great place to just hang out or even read. We're not just talking about textbooks or research either. Believe it or not, it's possible to read a book for fun and libraries at colleges and universities have tons of them. If you don't already know where the library is, you can usually find all the libraries that are available on campus by visiting your college website.

Exercise isn't just good for your body.

On average the students that exercised had GPAs that were 0.4 higher than those that did not. Wow.

Give back

Sometimes the best way to forget about the stresses of your life is to focus on the life of someone or something else. It's easy to get wrapped up in daily events and feel overwhelmed with the way life is turning out. Little troubles have a way of piling up and growing to the size of a mountain if you let them.
