Top ideas on how to beat boredom

Bored? Looking for something to do? Need a break from something you’re busy with?

I’ve compiled a list of 20 things that you can do to help get you out of a rut, or just give you a few minutes of something different to do 💡

  1. Do some jumping jacks – this will get your blood pumping and get your brain back into gear
  2. Grab the nearest book and start reading
  3. Do some research on places you’d like to travel to
  4. Plan a holiday (maybe even book it while you’re at it?!)
  5. Travel down memory lane – go through old photos, old journals, old blog posts
  6. Maybe use some of those old photos, old journals or old blog posts to write up a new blog post?!
  7. Take a walk – head out to the local supermarket, or around the block
  8. Spring clean – empty all the clothes from your cupboards and have a clearing out!
  9. Get girlie (unless you’re a guy?! 😉 ) – paint your nails, making sure to remove any current colour, of course!
  10. Make a cup of tea, sit back and relax while you sip away 🙂
  11. Cull your friends – that’s right! Do you really need / know all of those people on your Facebook friends list?! No? Well then say bye bye to some of them 😮
  12. Make a smoothie – find some random bits and pieces at home, throw them in a blender and smooth your way through the next hour or so
  13. Pick up the phone – make a phonecall to a friend or loved one. Don’t message them; PHONE THEM!
  14. Play with a pet – if you don’t have your own, then call up a friend and ask to come round for a pet visit 😉
  15. Pump up the jam – put on your favourite album, blast the music and have a mini disco at home (and if anyone else is at home, get them to join you!)
  16. Write a list – it can be a list of any sort… your bucket list, your grocery list, your to-do list for the following day. You get the idea! List it away 🙂
  17. Watch a tv-series / movie marathon (this should get you through some serious time wasting!)
  18. Read the newspaper – I personally have not done very much of this in my life!
  19. Count your worth – scour the house for lost coins all over the place and count it up… it may be worth a fortune
  20. Have a nap

  1. Fortunately I am never bored because I do partake in some of the things you have mentioned – add in grab your camera and discover things in your home or outside through new eyes. Curl up with a cup of tea, comfy blanket and good book. Discover new crafts – I ran out to a bead sale and brought home a several. Then I laid them out before me and made myself a necklace. With no money taking a walk in nature always lifts the mood:) Hopefully someone who is bored will find a way to change the day:) Have a wonderful weekend!
