Things to do when Bored

Updated on December 31, 2010

What to do when you are bored

Boredom is something that can really affect a person. Many times, not only is it frustrating but it will also be a waste of time. This wasted time can never be taken back and we should consider that we only get to live once and wasted time can take its toll. Imagine, you will wake up one day and you are old and you are about to die and you will be regretting so many things you did and things you did not get to do. So now it is about time that you find something to do whether it is something productive or something that just for the fun of it. Most of the time, these things that take away our boredom, something that makes the time pass by, is productive. Surely it is better than lying around or doing nothing.

Most of the stuff I will be suggesting or recommending in this article are really more on the personal side. What I mean is that these are things I do when I am bored and I am hoping that I will be able to help out people who are bored.

Learn a New Skill

The fact that you are reading this right now means that you have a decent internet connection. The internet is one of the best cures against boredom. So, my suggestion is that you can learn a new skill or get a new hobby. Not only will you be able to do something, it is also very productive and you get to learn something new. For instance, why not watch a tutorial video or something. Maybe you can learn something like cooking or maybe photography.

Many of the things I know are just things I learned through online tutorials. Imagine, I got into video editing using Adobe After Effects just through learning online video tutorials. You can learn these things to just by being patient and willing to learn. Then you can checkout my How To Download Software tutorial so you can trip out on the different software that can really help you become more artistic, productive, and more importantly you won't be bored anymore.

Watch Funny videos

There are many entertaining videos that are so funny online that will surely make your boredom go away. As I have said, for as long as you have internet then you will never be bored. Just be creative.

"Curiosity is the cure for boredom"

Truly an inspirational line. Boredom is for those who are uncreative. Be sure to be creative. Think of things to do. You can use Google and other online services that are free of charge and are just waiting for you to go to them.
