14. Connect with friends and family
Our family and closest friends are always a phone call away. So when you feel that boredom is setting in, pick up your smartphone and call them. This is also a great opportunity to reconnect with friends you’ve lost touch with. You can also opt for video calls to experience a strong connection and the joy of seeing your loved ones in front of you virtually. So just call your friends and talk about anything and everything.
15. Change your decor
Being in a new environment can often be a great idea to deal with boredom. And that can be done with something as simple as changing your decor. Move your furniture around to give your bedroom, living room, kitchen and even your bathroom a new look and a drastically different appearance. Rearranging the furniture just a bit can make you feel a lot fresher when stuck at home.
16. Create a bucket list
Create a list of things that you wish to do and accomplish by a certain period of time. You can put anything and everything in your wish list that you fancy. Add your goals, travel plans, things you want to buy, career goals, skills you want to learn or anything you wish. This list can be exceptionally helpful in future as it will motivate you to pursue your dreams.
17. Become a YouTube vlogger
If you feel comfortable in front of a camera and can express yourself effectively through your words, then starting your own vlog can be a excellent remedy to cope with boredom. Simply find the topics you are interested in and feel most comfortable with and start shooting with your smartphone. Once you are done, you can edit it on any video editing app and upload it on YouTube. Your videos just might go viral and you might become the next YouTube star.
18. Spend time with your pets
What can be a better time to spend more time with our furry friends than when you are stuck at home. Let’s face it, if you have a pet, you know they are more than that. They are our closest friends and a member of our family. They make us feel happier and give unconditional love. So if you feel bored, then playing with your friend is all you need. Teach them a new trick, give them a bath, make funny videos with them, do anything you like. And the best part is your pet would love to spend time with you.
