It is slowly becoming more and more challenging to come up with activities to do when we are bored. Well, here is a list of 10 things that we can do to overcome boredom.

    Do A Puzzle

    Now this can be a normal puzzle, a crossword puzzle, or even something like a Rubix cube. The more pieces or words the better. You can do a little bit each day and kill some time while working your brain.

    It is the perfect time to try out that recipe you've been dying to try. The best part about it is if it turns out awful, you can just pop that frozen pizza in your oven and save the dinner.

    Learn A New Skill

    Try knitting or crocheting, make some hats, blankets, anything you want because remember you have the time to do so.

    Try Yoga

    Get your body moving in a nice simple beginner level of yoga. You'll get some nice stretching in while also getting to relax and clear your mind.

    Binge A Show

    Take a day off from trying to find things to do all day and just binge watch something good. It can be funny, or serious, or even romantic, just don't forget the snacks.

    Play A Board Game

    What is a better way to kill 3 hours of time than to pop open a game of monopoly with your family. And as an added entertainment bonus you get to watch everyone argue throughout the entire game.

    Try Out A New Style

    Have you been dying to wear that new dress, or try that cool makeup look? Do it! You will probably rock it and look great, but if you don’t that's okay because really only your dog will be seeing it.

    Catch Up On Sleep

    Odds are there will never be another time before you retire that you don't have to wake up to an alarm to get ready and leave for work, so take advantage of this time and sleep in every now and then and give yourself some well deserved rest.
