Why is it that I go through days where I find there are not enough hours for me to get things done.
Then there are other days when boredom strikes out of nowhere. I find that on days where it’s raining; the weather is gloomy, boredom rears its ugly head.
Here are a few of my ideas when boredom strikes you!
I love TV, and there are some great streaming shows on currently that I’d like to share with you.
Durrells In Corfu
Annie with an E
Grace and Frankie
Instant hotel- reality
If you’re not into watching television, Audibles.com is an excellent site hooked up with Amazon that you can download a book and listen to it. I have listened to my audiobook doing some activities, such as:
1. Cleaning the house
2. Doing laundry
3. Taking a walk
4. Do some watercolor or drawing
5. Preparing dinner
For The Gamer
I have two iPad apps that I highly recommend.
Jigsaw puzzle, which gives you a chance to pick many different puzzle designs and you can choose the number of pieces you would like to accomplish up to 400 pieces.
Ticket To Ride is a fun family board game that I turned into an iPad app. You can play on your own with computer characters or online with people around the world.
Take Up A Hobby
Taking an online class can be a lot of fun. Many are self-pace, very engaging and you can learn many things! I have taken classes at:
Maybe now is the time to sit down with a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and explore how you are feeling at the moment.
Here are some journal prompts:
Take a look around your surroundings, when your eyes catch something of interest, start to free write. Don’t think about it. Just begin writing for 5 minutes.
2. Write about a moment you had in the past few days that you would like a “do-over.”
3. Create your wish list of all the things you would like to happen. It’s for your eyes only; have fun with it.
4. Write about someone you admire.
5. Write a letter to the 16-year-old you.
Another way to deal with boredom is to do some meditation. I highly recommend the Insight Timer app this app has many easy ways to take some time for yourself.
Get out and take a walk! Being with nature will bring fresh air to your lungs, clear your head and get you out of your boredom funk.
