50 Fun Things to Do When You Bored


Boredom is a temporary state of mind that can leave you feeling uninterested about life in general. Boredom happens when we stop being fully engaged in the present moment, what happens next is the mind is not being used and goes into “boredom mode” = lazy mode.

A quick fix for boredom is to engage it in the moment. I usually do things like counting the leaves on a plant, or counting the number of pictures/paintings on my staircase wall (53). The mind likes to be used, not in the sense of useless, repetitive thinking about the past or future, but rather something it can do that is practical in the present moment.

If your mind is in “bored mode” than definitely engage it first in a small, almost effortless activity and then move onto more “heavier” activities after that. Start small, and then go from there, this approach always works for me.

Below I wrote 50 ideas that you can use to alleviate boredom so that you can be fully integrated into your life and start enjoying the present moment.
