The human mind is capable of wonderful things. It can do many things, and it can do them well. However, it can get engulfed by boredom pretty easily. It needs a change of pace often, otherwise, it loses its ability to “do its thing”.
Here are some things that can restart your brain when you’re bored:
WRITE A POEM OR WRITE IN A JOURNAL
Creative tasks allow the brain to reboot, hence getting back on its track. This also leads to something productive. And you can show it off too! This can also be turned into a full-time activity that, sometimes, can lead to Instagram fame!
LOOK THROUGH OLD PHOTOS AND VIDEOS
This refreshes your memory. It also allows you to reconnect to relationships and events that you might have forgotten about. And who knows, maybe this will allow you to meet people that make sure you don’t get bored again.

REARRANGE YOUR FURNITURE OR REDECORATE YOUR LIVING SPACE
This not only gives you something to do, but allows you to change your environment. A change in environment can be a long term solution for boredom. Moreover, it can also help in improving your mood.
MEAL PREP FOR THE UPCOMING WEEK
This is especially exciting for people who like to cook. You can chop up your vegetables and arrange them in advance, which saves time later. You can put on your headphones and listen to music, and just lose yourself in the process.
CLEAN YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES/GROOMING KIT/STATION
Extremely important and beneficial thing to do! This not only gives you something to do but also helps you in the long run. Dirty makeup brushes can lead to several skin problems, as can unclean grooming tools. Cleaning your grooming station or makeup vanity can lead to you finding lost products also.
TIE-DYE CLOTHES OR BEDSHEETS
Fun craft project alert! Even though it can get messy, tie-dyeing is extremely fun. It helps you pass your time and gives you things to make your room look better.
GO TO THE MOVIES
Getting out of your house can sometimes lead to an improvement in your mood. Movies help you pass time and also refresh your mind. A long term solution to kill your boredom!
ORGANIZE YOUR CLOSET, OR DO A FULL-BLOWN CLOSET CLEAN-OUT
This sounds like a daunting task, but it is really helpful. It allows you to find clothes that you had, apparently, gone to Narnia, and also clothes that you never knew you had!
ADOPT A PET
Another long term benefit! This not only gets you someone to spend time with, but it also makes someone else’s life better.
GO WATCH A SUNSET OR SUNRISE
Another activity that allows you to pass time, get out out of your house, and spend time watching something beautiful happen. This can prove to be meditative for some people. And for people who like to Instagram, this can get you some beautiful pictures!
