Read a Book: I love reading a lot of romance novels (especially Nora Roberts Books) and it has helped me in times when i get really bored, also there is just something to say when you read a romance mystery, it just keeps you on your toes.

Start a New Hobby: Starting a new hobby when you are bored is like a really good thing because it will keep you busy. I started my new hobby of drawing and designing stuff one day when i was bored at work.

Visit a Local Attraction: One of the things to do when you are bored is to visit some of the local attraction in your city and just have some fun.

Go To The Movies: You can take yourself on a date when you are bored, you can check the latest movies showing in the cinemas and treat yourself to a movie and popcorn.

Start Journaling: Journaling is also a way to get rid of bored, you can write out your feeling and thoughts through journaling.

Clean Your Outdoor Space: Most people forget their outdoor space when they are at work or they are very busy but if you are bored then you clean out your outdoor space.

Go Shopping For New Essentials: You can make a list of the essential things that you need for yourself and things that you will need for the house and go shopping for it.

Listen To a New Podcast: Listening to a new podcast is also one of the things to do when you are bored, it can be an inspirational podcast or a funny one which ever you chose, you can also listen to my podcast at Nike’s Corner on anchor

Change Up Your Decor: You can change up the decor of your room if you are bored.

Make Ice Cream: You can look up ice cream recipes on pinterest or on YouTube and make yourself some ice cream.

Learn a New Language: I recently started learning Spanish on an app that i found and i can tell you my Spanish is getting there, so things to do when you are bored is to learn a new language.

Bake Yourself Some Cookies: You can make yourself some cookies to go with the ice cream that you made.

Do Your Laundry: If you are looking for things to do when you are bored is to do your laundry.

Watch Old Music Video: I just started re watching old music videos on YouTube and i have to tell you it brings back memories and its just plain fun to dance to old music.

Make a Vision Board: Making a vision board for yourself is going to be good for you because it helps you put down your vision of what you want to be or where you want to be by the end of the year or in five years time. i have my own vision board, i took a picture of it and made it my screensaver so that whenever i want to do anything it reminds me of where and what i want to be.

Watch Funny Videos: You can go to YouTube and check out funny videos.

Have a Relaxing Bath: You draw yourself a bath and just relax and let the stress leave your body.
