Killing time

Have you ever find yourself bored with nothing to do? I haven’t, not since those long history classes in high school. Being bored should not happen. Use it as an opportunity to have fun, learn or expand your horizons.

1. Reading Time

Idle time can be reading time. You can learn something or at least be entertained by what trouble Britney and the other young starlets are in, instead of killing time.

  • Doctor’s Offices usually have magazines, so it’s easy to find something good to read there.
  • Other waiting areas may not have as good selection of magazines but you should still skim through what they have even if it’s not something you would ordinarily read. It’s your chance to see something different.
  • Take a brochures and read through it. It may give you some insights, for example when you’re at a bank.
  • It’s best if you think in advance and bring your own reading material, this way your guaranteed it’s something you’re interested in.

Fun Time

Put some games on your phone. Carry a Sudoku game. Count people with mismatched clothes. Find other ways to amuse yourself. It’s a good way to have fun during a long day.

Old Friends Time

Pick up the phone and call someone. Scroll through you’re address book and look for names you haven’t spoken to in a while. Call an Aunt or other relative.

New Friends Time

Look around for a friendly face and approach him. You’ll never know who you’ll meet.

Thinking Time

Think about where you want to go in the future. Think about problems you’re currently experiencing.

Serene time

If your walking somewhere take in the sites. Use your brain to just enjoy.

How do you stop boredom?
