Keeping Your Mind Active While On The Move

While out and about, it can be easy to feel like you are not using your brain or maybe you find your brain wandering to topics that you would rather not think about but can not avoid.

To stop this from happening, there is a very simple solution: keep your mind active on something else. The following is a list of things that you can do to keep your brain ticking. 


Podcasts and audiobooks

One of the very best things you can do when you have some spare time where you can be on your phone, on your commute or something like that, is to listen to a podcast or an audiobook. In terms of audiobooks, you can easily find a free trial if you are looking to get into it and almost every book has been made into an audiobook, so there is certainly something that will tickle your fancy. 

Podcasts exist about every possible topic. There are so many that are free to listen to, or on music streaming services, so you should definitely take advantage of this content. Some podcasts are inspiring, others are thought inducing, and some are hilarious. Look up the best podcasts in a genre that you fancy, and you will have hours and hours of podcasts to listen to. 


This may be an obvious one, but you can listen to music. Some people find that when listening to their favourite music that they already know very well, their mind will zone out. A good way to make sure that this does not happen is to listen to music that you do not know quite as well. 

Spotify for example has a discover playlist that comes out every Monday, with music that an algorithm is guessing you might like. You can do this yourself by listening to playlists of genres that you do not usually listen to, and you might even find some great music!

Sports betting

If you want to keep your mind active while also trying to make money, then a great option is sports betting. Simply get one of the many mobile apps like these and you will be able to bet from anywhere, as long as you have some connection. Make sure to put proper research into your bets or you will find yourself losing some money. 

There are always live events on so you can bet in-play on pretty much anything. Sports like tennis, volleyball and football run almost all day every day, so there is no chance that you will be bored!

Sudokus and other brain puzzles

If you have the time to actually use your phone, then make sure to download at least one brain puzzle app to keep your mind active. The apps are good because they are well thought out and designed, so if you have a spare ten or fifteen minutes, hop on to your phone and try and solve a sudoku!
