127 (or More!) Things to Do When You’re Bored

Starting with a game of I-Spy for people who love to count and ending with a treasure hunt, this is the funnest and funkiest list of things to do when you’re bored at home, school, work, or in the hospital.

I have a gazillion things I love do when I’m bored, and all include the letters B. L. O. G. Blog, think about what I should blog next, brainstorm blog post ideas, create new blog headers, start new blogs (even when I’m not bored, it’s one of those things I love to do), learn how other bloggers make money from their blogs….

Can you tell that blogging is not only my favorite thing to do – it’s also my passion? If you’re bored, it’s probably because you haven’t found anything you’re passionate about. Before you scroll through my list of things to do when you’re bored at home, school, work, or in the hospital…take a minute to think about why you’re here. On this planet. At this time. In this place. God brought you here for a reason…what do you think it is?





One of my friends builds guitars — that’s his favorite thing to do when he’s bored. You could try learning a musical instrument – it’s good for your brain and it’ll give you something interesting to do. I recently started playing the flute, and will be joining an orchestra soon. If you like to listen to music, you might love learning how to play an instrument.

If you’re a bored AND broke – and you’re not a musician or a blogger – read 25 Odd Jobs and Hobbies That Make Money in Creative Ways – even if you’re not looking for a job yet. Maybe it’s time to start saving money for college, or a trip to Thailand, or to give to people who have no time to be bored because they’re working like crazy. I was never bored when I was a kid because I started working when I was 11 years old (only as a babysitter, but still! It was a job!). And I loved to read, and write a little. But mostly read. So I was actually never bored.

A List of At Least 127 Things to Do When You’re Bored at Home or Somewhere Else Boring

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.” – Anne Frank.

Tell me: when I say “God”, what comes to your mind? If you’re super bored, write to me in the comments section below. Tell me what your vision of Heaven is, and who you think is up there right now…

Or, just mindlessly scroll through this list of things to do when you’re bored…

  5. Molly says:

    If you are bored, you can write a letter to yourself and open it in a year’s time.. u can put it at the back of the wardrobe if you are messy like me…

  6. Anonymous says:

    Try creating a newspaper for your school. I know it sounds boring, but it’s actually wicked fun. BTW, you don’t have to have the newspaper for your school. It could just be for fun, and imagine you’re handing it out at school.🗞🏫🗞 For more fun, add some things that would make the teachers at your school mad, and imagine you giving it to them.😂😂😂😂😂 Again, I know it sounds boring, but it’s really a SUPER fun thing to do when you’re bored! Try it!

  7. Madison says:

    Count my money lol that will take 15 seconds

    • Lyric says:

      For me I’d be done counting my money in .1 second (I have a quarter, a singular quarter, yep).

      Need something else to do when I’m bored!

  8. Trudy says:

    I’m really bored at the moment I’m trying to find ways of not being bored. I sleep,listen to music, cook wash up do housework but I miss fun stuff and cool stuff. I like fun people to be with some adventure and good times. I’m going through a bad time right now I’m having a breakdown that means I spend time on my own or just quietly.

    I might write a book about not being bored when your bored. I think that perhaps if you create a boredom network to put people in contact with others that find themselves bored, like a social network for the bored. For me boredom has been boring but interesting.

    I don’t spend money, I make everything last. I create meals that don’t cost much, I find things to do at home as I don’t have money to just do as I like. I’ve had to learn to be thrifty and that’s good for boredom! Try to see how far your funds can go and things you can find to do when you’re bored. I like music, radio, reading, writing.

    A good challenge is to move from modern technology and push yourself to find other “boredom busters” which is what im trying to do. Boredom is worse if your family don’t see much of you, or if you don’t drive. I hope soon I won’t be so bored, though. I hope things get better for me.

  9. Alvina says:

    One thing you didn’t have on this list of things to do when you’re bored is surf the Internet! Not only does spending time online get rid of boredom, it also makes the time go by really fast. You can get board when they’re online?

  10. Jade says:

  11. JoeJoe says:

    My mom used to say that only boring people get bored, but I never agreed.

    How about coloring? That’s one thing you can do when you’re bored at home and even at work…especially if you work from home, and you sometimes suffer from the boredom that comes from staring at the screen all day!! Coloring is healthy and creative, and gives your mind a break.

  95. Jay says:

    I love to read how to live life more fully…like I’m doing now. Also, lately I like finding new fun ways to do things…like for instance, turning the tv to mute and having myself and my little girl play the characters with our own voice…it’s a little fun…but fun things like that which can dramatically shift the everyday routine to being a much more happier occurence.

    Look back on your life so far an make a list of good and or bad memories from the past.

    How about win something or solve puzzles, or both. You can do exactly this at Pyramid Effect. Competitions where you have to solve puzzles, find answers to cryptic clues or even just find hidden (virtual) treasure. As an added bonus once you complete these stages you get a chance to win something great.

  98. Laurie says:

    Write a thank you letter to your mom, for all the things she’s done for you. Or your dad, because tomorrow is Father’s Day.

    But don’t tell them you did it because you were bored and needed something to do.

  99. Lynda says:

    Watch Youtube

  100. Nia says:

    Look up optical illusions I spend hours looking at them

  101. Laurie says:

    Volunteer at an old folk’s home, or an animal shelter. One of the best things to do when you’re bored is to give back to the world in a positive way! Pick up litter in your neighborhood. I know it sounds boring, but….volunteering is so good for you and the world around you.

    Volunteer! If you’re bored with life, volunteering will help other people and make your life more interesting.

  108. Mariah says:

    Dance, makeup your own dance routine:)

  109. Macie says:

    I love to look at something in the room and then try not to think about it. It is a fun way to make your brain go crazy! I always love to turn on some music blasting loud and then dancing like there is no one watching ( WARNING: close windows or someone unexpected might be watching hehe)

  110. Traci says:

    very interesting things that will work for me if i get bored thanks for the list

  111. Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen says:

    Thanks for adding to my list of things to do when you’re bored!

    I think making up a game is a great boredom buster.

  112. highlowhi says:

    i just go on the computer and look up pics. of the first thing tht comes to mind. otherwise i would play a game or make up one.

  113. JJ says:

    I like to go on chatroulette.com although i warn it can be a little R rated so you have to move on quick and be ready ha. i like baking cookies or doing somethng crazy like going to a Karoake night or going up and down the street wearing wierd clothes. If your really bored don’t hold back and you’ll have the most fun. Some of my friend painted eachothers backs and took photos and it sounds wierd but it was a lot of fun and the pictures looked amazing almost professional. Just taking pictures is fun.

  115. Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen says:

    Thanks for your tips, Isabel! I’m the complete opposite of you: I don’t garden OR write poetry.

    My favorite thing to do when I’m bored is to go for a walk — especially if I have a purpose. I know it sounds boring, but I LOVE to walk, and we have lots of forest trails around our house 🙂

  116. Isabel says:

    I also read or write poetry. It is my way of pouring out all my feelings which I could never share with anyone. Poems on love and nature are particularly very nourishing.

  117. Isabel says:

    I do gardening. Not only do flowers and plants take my mind off so many stressful situations but being out under the morning sun also energizes me. In the late afternoons, I go back to check the flowers if they need watering and thereafter, just sit on the grass and warch the sunset…and all the tensions and boredom are gone…

  118. Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen says:

    Figure out if Twitter is something you like.

  119. raja says:

    try to identify things in room with eyes closed

    Clip your toenails.
