And, it’s way better than killing time anyway.

Bored at home? Here are few ideas!

We often have so many ideas when we are busy, but fail to find a single thing to do when we have nothing in hand and sitting idly, all bored. Here are fun and interesting ideas to try out.

1. Learning origami

The art of paper folding, that’s what origami is! Originating in Japan, origami is one of the most popular arts and craft form in the world. Each one among us has spent some time in our childhood folding papers and making various items such as boats, planes, birds, and other such interesting things. Origami, if done right, can be an extremely complex yet beautiful art form. Learning origami and trying to make something using paper is a fun way to spend your time while bored. It’s the perfect hobby to have.

2. Reading books

Can there be a better company than books? Anyone who loves reading books will agree, there is hardly any time to get bored. Well, when there are almost 13 million books in the world then a lifetime isn’t enough to read it all!

When you are bored, one of the best things to do will be to get over with the book you have been considering reading for long. Life is quite busy and if you are not stealing these moments to catch up with the books, you will certainly not find enough time to do so.

3. Cooking

Is there anyone over here who don’t love to eat? And, when you do, why not try to make something on your own? The Internet is a fairly helpful place when finding almost any type of information and you will certainly get a good number of recipes to try out. So, hone your culinary skills and turn your moments of boredom into your moment of glory as you create a delectable dish of your choice. And what’s better, you can enjoy it all by yourself, if you so wish to!

4. Gardening

Believe it or not, gardening is an amazing activity to kill boredom. You can start by installing lawn sprinklers in your garden. Do not have a garden at your place? Well, no need to worry! Yet again, the Internet will be the best place to check out how to recycle your old bottles and other such junks at your home to turn them into small pots where you can plant various plants and shrubs. Taking care of your own little garden can then become a regular activity and you will never have the time to feel bored again.

5. Start your blog

Starting your very own blog will not even cost you anything if you do not want it to. There are plenty of free blogs creating platforms. My personal favorite is the WordPress, and so is for almost 75 million websites globally, but to each his/her own! Think of a subject that interests you. It can be anything at all. And start writing. Give some time to find a good theme and decorate your blog, and you are all set!

6. Learn photography

There are plenty of online courses that will help you with it. if you have a phone with a decent camera then you have enough to start learning photography and clicking pictures. They might not be good enough initially, but make it a habit and you will be creating masterpieces shortly.

Whatever you do, do not be idle. The life is short. Enjoy it! Live it!
