Fun things to do around the house

     Has quarantine got you down?  Are you feeling bored and don’t know what to do?  Here are a few things that you can do without leaving the house to make you less bored and give you a boost of energy.

  1. One thing you could do is bake or cook. Volunteer to make dinner for your family. Try to find a type of food you have never tried.  You could also make some delicious sweets to have for dessert.
  2. Another thing you could do is read. You could get lost in a world of fantasy or get frightened by a scary story. Reading can take you to a new world and can leave you less bored.
  3. If you don’t feel like leaving the couch, you could watch a movie. Movies are entertaining and are good for any kind of day, especially if you have some popcorn to eat while you watch. Action movies and horror movies are the best kind of movies to get your heart going!
  4. Exercising is another great way to get rid of boredom. You could find workouts online or make up your own. Exercise can also leave you happier and more energized. 
  5. If you are missing your friends, online video games are a fun and interactive way to reconnect and get rid of boredom. There are some fun and free video games, like Among Us, that can help you work as a team or on your own.  
  6. Lastly, you can play board games. You can play these with family. You can have a game night once or twice a week, so that you have something to look forward to each week.

     

      Overall, productivity gets rid of boredom the best.
