This year we’ve spent more time than ever at home, keeping ourselves occupied so I have compiled a list of things you can do when you are bored without even leaving your house
1. Play a video game
Nothing is a better distraction than playing a video game. If you have a laptop and access to the internet you can download games like The Sims, Sim City or Theme Hospital through Origin and The Sims 4 and it’s expansion packs are currently on sale. Most modern consoles have the option to download games if you already have one in the house. I purchased a Nintendo Switch at the beginning of the year and it’s had some great use playing Zelda, Luigi’s Mansion and Fortnite. There are also some great games you can get on your phone such as Mario Kart.
There are loads of ways you can still keep active at home. My personal favourite is to do Yoga. I personally love Yoga with Adrienne on Youtube. There are also many work out Youtube videos that don’t require any equipment or you could buy a work out DVD on Youtube or iTunes.
3. Watch a new show
When life is getting too much practicing mindfulness/meditation is really great way to keep you focused and personally helps with my anxiety. Apps like calm or Headspace offer free mindfulness courses as well as some paid in-depth courses.
5. Buy a book
You can download a new book to your smartphone or tablet if you have one. Some books that I would really recommend are featured in my post about Non-Fiction books that I would recommend.
6. Pamper yourself
Doesn’t need to be a full face mask (although if you have one lying around, why not throw it on) but also do those things you never have the time to do for me it’s my eyebrows, tan and nails. Or why not try to perfect your winged eyeliner or follow a YouTube tutorial and learn some new techniques.
7. Listen to some music
8. Start Journalling
If you have a note book lying around or even use your tablet to journal like I do
9. Curate your social media
Unfollow any of those accounts that don’t make you feel inspired when they pop up on your feed. Block, mute, unfollow anyone you don’t want to give your energy to anymore or even challenge yourself to a whole day without going on social media and see how you feel
10. Call someone
Call a friend or Face Time a family member you haven’t spoken to in a while. Particularly if you’ve not had human contact in a while it’s important to keep communicating with those around you.
