After a season finale that left us crying, gasping, and jumping in our seats, HBO’s Game of Thrones has come to a close. Which, in addition to an intense yearning for season 7 to start, leaves us with one hour free every Sunday. Although it might seem easy to fill that TV time with, well, more TV time, you might want to consider an alternative. By using that one hour Game of Thrones time slot, you can make some significant changes that could improve your well being… Westeros. Here’s what to do now that Game of Throne’s is over.
1) An Hour of Yoga
Stress comes easily, but shaking it off is a little bit harder. Yoga is an exercise that it known to naturally relieve stress. Turn your sun salutation into a Lord of Light salutation. Make your downward facing dog stretch into a downward facing direwolf stretch. Use this hour to unwind and breath after a long day. It will also help you deal with your Game of Thrones withdrawal.
2) Read a Book
For those who haven’t read George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones corresponding book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, now is your time. Already read it? Well then perhaps you’d be a good fit for The Citadel. Either way, finishing a book is always more satisfying than finishing a TV series. Get reading!
3) Plan a Summer Road Trip
Now that you have no more Sunday obligations, at least no more important ones, plan a weekend road trip. Summer is already halfway over, so get planning! Maybe you should also consult Lord Varys for some travel advice, too. He seems to have a lot of friends around the world. Oh, and don’t forget to download the Game of Thrones soundtrack if you’re missing it a little too much.
4) Spend Time With Your Family
Again, summer is already halfway through and the second half is going to pass just as quickly. Use this hour to spend some time with your family. If we’ve learned anything from Game of Thrones it’s that family is everything!
