There's definitely nothing worse than being bored. Whatever you think of, you don't want to do that, because it seems to be not interesting. It's time to move you a bit with our top 6 productive things to do when you're bored.
There are thousands of things you could do to make yourself moving and lift up your mood. But many of such things are pranks and jokes, that will amuse you for as long as 15 minutes. May be it's enough to make you feel better, but we don't see any reason in singing the Barney song till everyone in the room is annoyed, or meditating in the elevator, or stalking all people who wear blue shirt and then run away when they look back. These things are not productive, so we suggest you doing something, that will make you feel better about yourself, and that will entertain you.
#1 Cook. Unless you're a housewife (by the way, they might find cooking interesting, if they look for new recipes to try) who cooks everyday, try cooking. That can be anything, like making dinner for the whole family, or trying a new dish. If you've got a sweet tooth, then cook a dessert or bake a cake or cookies. Cooking will entertain you for at least an hour, and then you can share the dishes you've made with your family and friends.
#2 Read. Reading is just perfect to be entertained for a long time. Pick up a book you wanted to read and dive into a new unknown world. If you're not a bookworm, you could read a fresh newspaper. And in case if even that doesn't work, then use the Internet to read information you'd certainly like, like articles about other countries and their customs. You can also search the information about your hobby or interests.
#3 Go shopping. Shopping is the best way to get rid of boredom. We don't tell you, that you have to buy anything, but if you find something special, well, you can afford spending several bucks for that. Also you can go to the grocery shop! You can buy ingredients to cook something special for dinner. By the way, while you're wandering through the grocery shop, you can come across some exotic foods you'd like to try.
#4 Remember your hobby. People who have hobbies are never bored. In case you don't have any long-lasting projects you could continue whenever you have free time, try your hand at knitting, sewing or embroidering. Manly hobbies ideas are woodworking, whittling, model building, taking pictures and drawing.
#5 Take time for yourself. “Me time” is very important to unwind you physically and emotionally. And when you're bored, the best thing you can do is to take time for yourself. Take a bath with foamy bubbles, try to do a new make-up, or give yourself a manicure and pedicure.
#6 Gardening. Some people can find gardening tiresome and hard, but there's nothing better than watching blossoming flowers in a new flower bed. Or you could plant some vegetables and watch them growing. Eating organic isn't as hard as you could think!
