We have all been there: you have absolutely nothing to do and you are bored out of your mind. You could sit inside all day and do nothing, or you could go out and explore the world. Here is a list of creative ways to pass time that aren’t sitting inside and scrolling through your phone!
1. Get Yourself Outside!
People can pass time by using the resources they have in that time. But the biggest resource for the human to pass time is provided by God. That is nature, environment, birds, sky, plants, sea and rivers. If you watch and feel the creativity of God, then it will help you pass time quickly. Not only time pass, but also provide feed to your brain and body to get into life without feelings over-weighted.
2. Think Of Things You Never Normally Would
Then see nonliving things around you. Think deeply about one thing. Keep looking and thinking on design, elements, color, quotes, price, wait, sound, situations of that thing. And then ask any question about this non-living thing to your near people. They will answer you, listen to the answer. According to my experience, it will pass your 30 minutes easily.
3. Notice The Little Things
Think about the people traveling in the bus. See similarity in the clothes of people and watch their activities. Is their clothes are matching with their activities. Think about: What they’re seeing. What are they feeling? What they’re doing? How they are interacting with other people. And now compare yourself. Analyze what is right in you? What right thing you’re doing. You can learn many things in this process. It will pass 20 KM easily. This is definitely one of the most interesting ways to pass time!
4. Read Yourself To Sleep
This one is strictly for the Non Readers though because readers never get bored (they have books to read- Always.). Pick that classic you never wanted to read and well, you’d be asleep in no time and who gets bored of sleeping?
5. Tidy The Room
Or the closet, or the drawer, or maybe just yourself. Reorganizing is often the best rescue system from getting bored. You’re likely to spend hours in deciding what to keep where, and guess what? When you’re finally done, you’ll spend the entire of next month finding stuff and keeping it back where it used to be. It comes in handy though, you get to lay your hands on things you never thought you had.
6. Zodiac Interest?
You might stare at me in the most awkward manner, but there is no one who’d rather not know of their fortune, or a little more about what their zodiac sign says of them. Not believing in it is another story, but to say you were never curious or inquisitive, you’re simply lying. And it is often good to know of what the stars say about you in a fun way. Just, that should not rule your plan of action! This is one of the really cool ways to pass time!
7. Bake Your Heart Out
Or the cookies or bread? Baking is often a stress buster but more than that, experimenting with those sweet flavours and essences can be a great way to pass time when bored. And guess what, you can bake your cake and have it too. So just ensure that it is edible enough and you’d be in for a treat. Boredom can be pretty sweet – literally.
8. Gain New Skills
You’ve got the time, why not make the best of it? Watch tutorials online and maybe add to your skills. You could learn anything from applying makeup, cooking, graphic design, repairing old electronics, how to Photoshop or maybe even how to fold your clothes. You may as well take up an unpaid MOOC or something which broadens your spectrum of knowledge and makes you more employable. Boredom isn’t taking you anywhere you see.
9. Have A Drink
Not that I’d advocate that drinking is the best way to pass your time, but if it gets you high, maybe boredom won’t last too long. Alright now, getting drunk crazy comes with terms and conditions. A. You do not get drunk to puke and spoil the place around. B. You get drunk only when you know that it gets the better side of you than crying over past relationships. C. You do not get drunk and email the boss with resignation. He may be a pain but he is the boss. That said, maybe you could go clubbing, get high and make new friends. It would be crazy times to think of.
10. Niche Restaurant Option
There’s always that one eatery on the city outskirts which serves the best food. Even if it is just Burger King, they’d still have something so special about the taste in that particular outlet. How about a road trip to the city outskirts or countryside and a delicious meal there? I wish I lived in Amsterdam and could treat myself to Volendam Cheese Factory’s Crisps and waffles you get down the lane to Marken every time I was bored. Never mind, you make the best of your resources in the least. If you’re a food lover, this is definitely one of the ways to pass time for you!
