100 ideas of things to do when you’re bored

During this quarantine period, you’ve probably asked yourself several times what to do when you’re bored.
And there are two options: get caught up in the discouragement and fear of the future or use the days to do everything you’ve ever wanted to do ( okay maybe not quite EVERYTHING) and enjoy the isolation as much as possible.
We can all make excuses like:
* I’m lonely
* I don’t have any money
* I’m afraid to go out
* There’s nothing to do around the house.
* I have to work remotely
* I have to clean the house
…And certainly some of this is true, but we have never had so much free time in our lives and we always complain that we can’t devote time to what we want so this situation is an opportunity.
We can explore new activities, deepen the ones we already know and use this moment for our personal and spiritual rebirth.
All of man’s troubles come from not knowing how to sit still in a room.

Here’s what to do when you’re bored around the house

Fun pastimes

Exercise with weights, rubber bands, football or simple equipment like chairs or steps to keep fit
