Do you sometimes catch yourself doing nothing productive on a day off? Well, I’m about to make it worse, muahaha! Check out this list of fun things to do when you’re bored at home!
1. Go grab that old and dusty Nintendo 64 and dive into the nostalgia!
Did you manage to find all 145 stars in Super Mario 64 when you were a kid? Let’s see if you can do it faster now that you’re older (and wiser….?)!
2. Get creative and make your own moodboard.
And I’m not just talking digital here. I mean a real, physical moodboard! Search the house for magazines and cut out your favorite pictures. Paste them all on one big board or big piece of paper and hang them above your desk.
3. Take a Disney quiz or two
4. Watch Sims ‘Let’s Play’ or ‘Speed Build’ videos on Youtube
It’s like watching reality TV – but better! I can totally recommend Deligracy. This lovely Aussie girl will totally brighten up your day! She somehow gets me hooked to a 30 minute video and makes it seem like 5 minutes.. She’s so sweet and entertaining to watch!
5. Write Hogwarts acceptance letters and put them in random mailboxes.
Dear [fill in name],
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Please find enclosed a list of all necessary books and equipment.
Term begins on 1 September. We await your owl by no later than 31 July.
6. Create your own dance choreography while cleaning your room.
I really need to do this myself, my room’s a mess! I always like to put on some upbeat music and just dance while cleaning up. Shake those hips! How much fun is it to grab a piece of clothing, then perform the ‘perfect’ pirouette before putting it into your closet. Don’t get dizzy!
7. Book your next (imaginary) visit to a Disney park or your dream vacation destination.
That rhymes – woohoo! Anyhow, I’m guilty. I sometimes book a trip to a Disney park (5* Disney Hotel, obviously!) just to click cancel right before confirming. It’s just fun to do and you get that little spark of joy inside, even though you know you’re just doing it for fun. Yeah, I’m quite easy to satisfy.
The more I think of, the weirder it gets. Time to call it quits for now!
