Are you tired of boredom and being still?
We are coming out of a period of boredom and being still—now having to make the right moves.
The world as we know it will not remain the same after this. You will not remain the same after this either.
We are all coming out of this pandemic, as different people. Mentally, physically, emotionally, a lot of things would have changed.
While the lockdown is not so fierce in some countries, some people do not know what the sun looks like in their own countries as they are not allowed to step out. And this creates boredom for many.
So, what do we do?
We have to keep ourselves busy, as every day now suddenly looks the same. Some of us have kids and spouses, some do not. And for those who are alone, this is harder.
Alone or not, let us look at a few ways we can get active.
Here’s how to get rid of this boredom:
This is the best time to get a craft coming. You can either knit a pair of socks, a cap or a scarf. Or you can make beaded ornaments.
When next you go for a grocery break at the supermarket, you can get the supplies that you need to make your hobby possible.
These are hard times, and creativity is suddenly a luxury as we all just want to wake up tomorrow and see that this is gone.
It’ll go. Before it does, let us keep our minds and our hands busy with hobbies that are not mentally and physically tasking.
But enough to keep us busy.
Leave Behind Boredom & Redecorate
The reason the house feels a little too caged is because you are staring at the same old thing every day.
Now, remember that you are not exactly very young anymore if you are alone at home, no heavy lifting and that includes couch moving.
But you can get some stickers from the store and when you feel like it, put them all over your wall, and if they are glow stickers, all the better.
Do not let anyone tell you it makes little sense, it does.
You can also take out a new set of curtains from your stash and swap with the ones you have on.
A new look will make sitting at home more bearable, and the time spent redecorating means less boredom.
Shift from Boredom & Cook
Thankfully, we are allowed to shop for groceries, so learn about new dishes from the internet and get cooking, baking, plating, and whatnot.
Cooking is a good way to pass time and not be bored.
And think about it, when this pandemic is over, you would have learned how to cook a lot of things that you did not know how to.
The reunion party is going to be amazing.
This is not the end of the world, not yet, at least. We will get out of this together. Do not lose hope just yet, we will hold hands, hug, and dance in the sun once more.
Until then, learn something, get busy, knit a scarf, declutter a room, keep your mind busy, and stay safe.
