Quit Being Bored! 5 Fun Things To Do Right Now

Life is not supposed to be boring, but right now we are living through a pandemic and that can make finding fun a little difficult! A pandemic has a huge impact on mental health, and it’s not easy to find life fun when you are stuck in quarantine or under lockdown rules. You need to know that it is okay to feel restless - it’s a restless waste of a year - we are all finding life a little harder to manage right now. 

The good news is that you can quit being bored right now. You can stop sitting on the couch and binge watching whatever is on Netflix, and you can start looking at how to make the best of a rubbish situation. So, we’ve put together five things that you can do right now to stop being so bored. Let’s dive in!

1. Workout. Yes, I know, you don't feel like it because the pandemic has made you sad. We get it. But the thing is, you are going to fester just sitting on your butt and you cannot get those endorphins pumping if you are going to allow yourself to sit and be sad. So, get up, get online and find a good workout to get moving to. You won’t want to do it to start, but once you get going, I promise it’ll be worth it. 

2. Shop. Ah, I hear you cry out that the shops are shut and you cannot go anywhere because lockdown says no. Psst - the internet is RIGHT THERE! Get online with and snoop around at the best workout gear you could hope for to help you with point 1! Online shopping can get you into home renovations, hobby crafting and working out all in one - plus it feels nice to know that deliveries are on the way!

3. Learn A Skill. The online world is a huge place nowadays and you can learn anything from upholstery to baking. Get online and find a tutorial for something that you are interested in. by the time the world goes back to some kind of normal, you could be an authority in a whole new hobby you didn't think about before!

4. Dance. Put the music on loud and get your dance on. You have no way of going out and hitting the town with the girls right now, but you can grab everyone on FaceTime or Zoom and just dance! You can still do this together if you want to, though it looks a little funny to the outside world. The good news is that you’re in the comfort of your own home - so no one is watching outside anyway!

5. Get Outside. You are allowed exercise every day and if you have a garden, get outside and spend time in it. Use lockdown to build that veggie garden you’ve daydreamed about and don’t be afraid to get a little creative with seeds that you buy online. Just make sure that you plant for the right season.
