What to do When I am bored? You are probably asking same question to yourself, let’s kill your Boredom. Since previous few days I was bored like hell and had 0% productivity in work so I figured out things to do during that time. later I thought why not write a blog post about it, so here is a list of 10 things you can do when you are bored.
Watch a Movie:
Watching a movie mostly help me to overcome my boredom and be more productive. Movies which help me most are the ones I like the most and I get inspired after watching them, be it Iron Man or Avengers, I get inspired for work after watching them. If you tried it and still it didn’t help, scroll down, I got a whole list to take away your boredom.
Try Something New:
I have an android device and a windows machine, I have apps and softwares for almost every tasks but nothing is ever perfect. I try some new apps, uninstall the apps, games or programs I do not use, which helps me to be more efficient and makes me more productive.
Trying new games has always been fun for me, I discovered lots of new games for passing my spare time, go try some.
Watch Some TV Shows:
The best shows I have seen (Suits, Sherlock Holmes, White Collar, etc) are the result of my attempt to kill boredom and it works like a charm. Try some yourself, for a good start here are few recommendations:
- Sherlock Holmes
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
Here is a Complete list of 10 Best TV Series to watch which I compiled after publishing this post so linking it here.
Clean Your Room:
I clean up all the mess, get organized, clean my room and work, play, sit, sleep and it gets dirty again and when I am bored or have some free time I clean up my room (that happens once in whole month though). I clean my work desk, Clean my PC (physically) organize my stuff from my shoes and socks to my books and External hard drives, it helps to kill some time and boredom too.
Learn a Skill:
Most of the skills (Photoshop, basic web coding, copywriting are few of those) I have today are result of my boredom. Go on try something, it would be helpful for you if you learn something related to your line of work. Do you want to master how to use certain high-end software like Photoshop or aftereffects OR any coding language? hell you can even learn time management or project management through video tutorials. I always use Lynda.com for this kind of stuff and I am better at something everyday due to learning something when I am bored.
Go Out, Meet Someone:
Okay, ENOUGH of the internet, shut down your computer and meet somebody. Physically. Maybe its a friend, relative, somebody you know or your parents, spend some quality time with them talking about your good old days OR planning for something new for your future, this helps.
Organize Your Daily Schedule:
Most of the time Boredom hits is when you are not having a schedule for your work, study,sports, etc. Make a schedule/timetable for your daily life on a Paper or chart, stick it somewhere in your room where you see it daily and try to work accordingly.
I don’t know, a diary or an article, a letter or email to your friend maybe. When I am bored I write a blog post or at least I do some research about topic I am going to write, it is real. THIS HELPS A LOT to kill your boredom.
Read a Book:
I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.
Books are boring, that’s what I used to say BEFORE I started reading real stuff, You know what most Successful people in the world have in Common? They read Books. Try reading a book when you get bored or get free time, I try to read books related to marketing and Business (I never studied business in college though) and I learn A LOT from the books I read.
Watch YouTube Videos:
Most of the free time I spend I spend is either watching TV shows, writing blog posts or watching YouTube videos. I love technology and I have subscribed to a lot of YouTube channels related to tech, be it MKBHD, Erica Griffin or Unboxtherapy. I’ll suggest you to find channels related to your interest and watch videos when you get bored.
