10 Amazing Things You Can Do When You Are Bored


When you have plenty of free time and nothing to do, how can you make this time productive while having fun? Easy! All those movies and eating out get old and unbearably boring and you want to try something new. Sometimes we need some new and interesting ideas for things to do with our spouses, family, or friends. So, if you’re adventurous enough to try brand new activities, here are several amazing things you can do when you are bored.

1. Jet skiing

If there is nothing to do on a weekend, you may want to try jet skiing. This activity is perfect for spring and summer, however if you are lucky enough to live in a country where summer never ends, what are you waiting for? Don’t just lie by the beach or pool, try jet skiing and have lots of fun! Boating is another great and fun activity to try.

2. Visiting the zoo

This is one of my favorite things to do when I’m unbearably bored. Zoos are not only for kids, they are also exciting and interesting for teens and adults. Isn’t it great to see lions, tigers, and other cute animals? Visiting the zoo is an amazing way to spend the whole day with your family, boyfriend and friends.

3. Bowling

Perhaps, the most awesome thing about bowling is that it’s rather affordable way to have fun with your spouse, family, or friends on the weekend. Nowadays almost every city or town has bowling club, so find a place in your area and invite your sweetheart or friends. Don’t forget to get some drinks or order some food while you are bowling. By the way, it’s a fantastic date night idea for all ages!

8. Start a blog

If you have great writing skills, lots of free time and want to make it more productive and fun, starting a blog is a brilliant idea for you to try. Fashion, movies, books, gardening… it can be anything you like. Sure, it’s a bit difficult to start your own blog, but it’s possible and it’s interesting way to spend your free time and even make some money. Just make sure you write about something you are really passionate about and try to do it regularly.

9. Volunteering

I always recommend volunteering to everyone because not only does it great activity, it’s also beneficial for you. I love that feeling when I help someone. There are always people who need our help, including kids. Nowadays there are many organizations seeking volunteers, but if there’s no organization in your town, you can volunteer at an orphanage. This is one of my favorite things to do on the weekends. Moreover, I love to help stray animals, even though I can’t bring them home. I try to feed them every day and I want everyone to do the same. Animals are just like humans and they also need your help. I have 6 rescued cats and 5 dogs and I love and appreciate them.

10. Having a cooking show

It may sound strange at first, but it’s a fun thing to do when you are bored and when you are living alone. Find some recipes, pretend you are on a cooking show and try to talk out loud when you cook. Go ahead and invite your friends or sweetheart to see your cooking show. You will have plenty of fun and spend great time together.

These are only a few things you can do when you are bored. If you get a little creative with it, anything can be fun, just have your partner, family or friends with you. What do you like to do when you are bored? Please share your ideas with us.
