Isn’t it funny how boredom and busyness coincide?
We think a day with nothing to do sounds like a dream, but sometimes it’s not exactly what we imagined. Sometimes free time ends up being more boring than WORKING. I’ve actually found that I enjoy being productive to a certain extent, and I need that work time in order to truly enjoy having nothing to do.
I think that’s an important concept that we don’t think about much - what would free time be if we never had to do work? Wouldn’t we get bored? If we can get bored with a day of free time, imagine a perpetual life of free time.
Anyways, I kind of got off on a tangent.
The point is, we get bored. But there’s so many things that you could do, which is great because I’ve compiled 82 of them just for you.
In our busy world, being bored seems like a dream… until it happens, and there you are, left without anything to do.
In those times, remember these options! There are plenty of things to do, and you don’t need to be bored all the time! Free time should be made the most of, so don’t let it go to waste!
And remember, there aren’t only eighty-two things to do in your free time. Look at these ideas, but definitely get inspired and think of new ideas.
Consider keeping a running list of the things that you love to do so that you don’t run short of ideas. That’s coming from my list-making, organized personality, but I think it can definitely be useful so that you don’t have to go searching for what to do every time you get a few hours without anything to do.
