Things to do when you’re bored

”Boredom, the desire for desires.”
– Leo Tolstoy

This quote flew across my eyes a while ago and wow, I kept thinking about it. That’s because this quote is so right. Like extremely right. Okay, yes, maybe I’m a bit overreacting right now but I just really like it when quotes give you a new perspective on things. However, it also gave me inspiration for this article where I’m going to give ideas about what you can do when you’re bored. Without further ado, let’s get started!


Books definitely are the best for killing the time. Here are a few books that I really like: The Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard, Delirium Trilogy by Lauren Oliver, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare and Turtles all the way down by John Green.

Movies and Series

Watching movies and series is a good thing to do when you’re bored.
The Society is kind of new on Netflix and it has only one season, but I absolutely can recommend it. It’s my favourite.

Self care

Take some time for yourself. You can put up a mask, take a nap, go to the spa and all that. This is by the way very important, because a lot of people forget that you need some rest too. Putting a mask on your face with your friends is also fun to do, and this brings me to the next idea…


Invite your friends over! You don’t have to do anything special, because just talking and laughing is always good. If you want to do something with your friends, you could have a sleepover or go somewhere outside. For example to a theme park, to a shopping mall or eat somewhere.


Listen to some music, make new playlists or try different styles of music. There’s so much music in this world to discover.

Visiting places

You might think that you have to travel first to see amazing things, but nothing could be further from the truth. Look around in your own country for beautiful places, and I’m sure you’ll find something! ps. it’s also good for instagram pictures 🙂


You always can try some new recipes. Maybe you’ll find a new fav! If you don’t want to put so much time into it, you could bake something like a cake.

Photo book

How nice is it have pages full of memories? That’s exactly what you’re going to do. Buy an empty book, print pictures and put them on the pages! You also can write cute quotes or write the time and date underneath the pictures.


There’s a lot that you can do with your room. You can buy new stuff and give your room a makeover. If you’re happy with your room, you just could clean it up. It’s also fun to look through your old stuff in your room: who knows what’s hiding there?

I hope you know what to do now!
Take care ♥
