Things to Do When You're Bored

21.6.15


Maybe your friends are making plans without you so you have no reason to escape the house. Maybe it is a rainy day and you are stuck inside. Perhaps you just choose to stay at home but find yourself chronically bored. Whatever the reason may be, here is a list of things to do when you are bored.

1| Read a book.
I would suggest any Colleen Hoover book if you're in the mood for a YA/ NA romance book (she's the best), if not then just comment down below and I could help you pick a book. If you aren't able to read books, listening to an audio book on Audible would be a great alternative.

2| Binge-watch a TV show.
Whenever I'm on a reading slump, you'll find me binge-watching a TV show. I already have a post up about all the TV shows I'm currently watching so you can find great shows to watch if you're in need of one. Also, I've started watching a Netflix show called Daredevil which I'm obsessed with. Highly recommend it.

3| Start a blog.
Blogging is a fun way to share your thoughts on a subject you love and be creative. You can blog about anything you like and interact with people.

4| Do a puzzle.
Solving a puzzle or playing mind stretching games can be very engaging.

5| Clean your room.
You can finally get to that huge cleaning session you were probably thinking about for months.

6| Create to-do lists. 
Daily to-do lists are helpful and they make your life more organised. I suggest downloading an app since your phone is probably near you all the time. Wunderlist is my favorite as I can download it on my laptop and phone.

7| Find a new hobby.
It could be anything. Maybe something you were good at before, or a new one that you can learn from YouTube.

8| Bake.
You can bake anything you love eating such as cakes, cookies, etc.

9| Marathon movies overnight.
Watch your favorite movies or the movies you've always wanted to watch but never got the chance to.

10| Procastinate by watching wisdom teeth removal videos on YouTube.
They're the funniest! I spent an hour watching them yesterday, no joke. Here's my favorite.

11| Glam yourself.
You can try out different makeup looks/styles and prepare outfits for the next days. I enjoy doing this sometimes and it helps pass time.

12| Learn something new.
You can go online and learn new things and expand your knowledge.

13| Wash your makeup brushes.
The more you keep putting it off, the nastier they get causing breakouts and blackheads. 

14| Unsubscribe yourself.
Do you still get subscription emails from email subscriptions that annoy you? Unsubscribe.

15| Create a wish-list. 
Having a wish-list helps. Do you feel awkward telling people what you specifically want when they ask? A wish-list provides many options and different price ranges and you aren't asking for anything specific. You can create it just for yourself too, though. You could work hard and earn more money then purchase the things from your own wish-list.

What do you like to do when you are bored at home?
