We’ve all been in this situation before – you’ve finally reached your day off and boredom hits and your day immediately slows down. Boredom is never fun but can be managed if you choose the right activity to do. Here are ten great ways to spend your time when boredom hits.
1. Do A Puzzle
Simple things such as doing a puzzle are almost becoming a lost art. They are an excellent way to pass the time and they’re inexpensive as well as fun.
2. Do A Short – Or Long – Workout
A great place to look for workouts both long and short is Pinterest. You will find workouts put together for any age, time length, and experience. Working out is a great way to pass the time and reach a new weight goal.
3. Do A Crossword Puzzle
Crossword puzzles are a great way to pass the time and keep your brain busy and healthy.
4. Send Your Long Distance Friends Surprise Postcards
If you have a lot of long distance friends, you can send them a surprise letter or postcard in the mail.
5. Try New & Intricate Nail Art
We’ve all seen those tutorials of beautiful intricate nails when you are bored why don’t you try some of them? If you are sitting around the house, you have nothing else better to do.
6. Plant An Indoor Herb Garden
Planting a herb garden can add great flavors to foods and drinks. They can also be great for wounds and health, planting these in-home herb gardens will give you much time spent.
7. Refresh Your Middle & High School Knowledge
Refresh your knowledge from school and keep your border at bay with books and online sites.
8. Re-Arrange Your Books
You can rearrange them by genre, color, or any other order you wish. If you have a lot of books, this will make time pass by fast.
9. Learn Origami
Origami is fun and easy to learn. It will keep you entertained for hours on end.
10. IKEA-Hack Your Old Furniture
If you are good with handy-work, this is for you. Take an old piece of furniture and make it more modern or “IKEA-esk” by looking up tutorials online and you’ll have a refreshed piece of furniture, and you’ll find yourself having fun instead of being bored.
Boredom can lead to creativity and self improvement; you just need to choose the activity. You don’t need to choose watching TV or playing a game on your phone; you can decide to improve your body, mind or home and make something useful from your boredom.
