We’ve all been there, a brand new day but then you are just sitting bored, thinking and have no idea how your going to spend the day or even where to start. Luckily, I have a few ideas on what you can do. So here’s what to do when you’re just bored;

what to do when you're just bored

  • Organise/declutter your space or house, clean out that cupboard you have always saved for later and organise your closet and rooms.
  • Do your laundry the right way, you have the time.
  • Grab a book and make yourself finish it on that day, the day will be over before you know it.
  • Have a spa day, mani/pedi/face masks the whole package.
  • Try a new recipe, get your cookbooks out and become your own masterchef.
  • Put your sweats on and complete a workout session, beats being bored any day.
  •  Watch some movies/listen to your favourite music.
  • Call someone you haven’t talked to in a while, see what they’ve been up to.
  • Plan for the next day, a place to visit or go to.
  • Do your hair, give yourself a makeover, new hairstyle, new you.
  • Take a catnap, you will feel refreshed.
  • Have a cocktail,tea or your best coffee.
  • Go for a walk around the park or around the neighbourhood.
