What do you do When you are Bored?

I'm thinking in one of those days in which for example it's raining outside so you can't go to the beach or jogging, TV is boring, none of your friends is around in chat, etc. And you're bored, terribly bored. What do you do those days to entertain yourself? I've tried with reading, a good book can be cool so those days are great for that. Any other good ways to fight boredom that you know?

I don't know, sometimes I am soooo bored that nothing seems to fix it. I try to read something, or watch some dvd, or just sleep. I am unemployed for four months and it was getting terribly boring. Now I am teaching in a school but not full time. It got better.

I'm very happy that you finally got a new job...it sucks to be at home with nothing to do, and of course not making money. For those two reasons working is necessary...but now, what do you do if you are bored at work? lol

It is not a full time job but it is a job :) I can't get bored there because I am teaching. But at a regular job (I'm a lawyer) I will just take a tour at the company, go to the coffee machine, to the toilet and then get back to my work :)

I usually plug up my surge protector and jump on the internet. That eventually gets dull, so I start writing. If I have writer's block, then I eat junk food while watching some corny movie. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Follow me on NoMoreCollegeDebt.blogspot.com as I try to make $8k in sixty days using only a computer, a lot of free time, and some determination.

The only that I would probably do which would be a last resort would to do some housework..Those chores that seem to always be put off ..

I usually turn on my pc when I get bored. I play some non-strategic games like shooting and the like. If even that does not get rid of my boredom I just take a nap. It really feels rejuvenating and fresh again.

If no one is around online to chat with or available to talk on the phone I will just other ways to entertain myself online, such as coming to mylot and replying to discussions or posting them, which is why I am here now pretty much.. Im bored! lol.. I also play games online like bingo and monopoly and sorry! also a LOT of times I will go on my myspace page and update my profile. sometimes I just play music on the computer and clean the house. The kids and I have tons of board games we play also. with 3 kids I hardly ever find myself bored lol.. I always have to think of ways to keep THEM entertained hehe..

i hate days like that, i tend to read a book, or do a crossword or word search, or maybe one of the jobs around the house, that tends to never get done, like sorting out the kids bedrooms, sorting our a drawer that when u open everything springs out of it.lol, so at least for a few days u arent attacked by paperwork or other load of rubbish..lol

LOL! I wish I had the time to be bored. My life is so hectic that I rarely have a minute to myself, so the idea of having time to be bored is very appealing to me!!But I guess if that situation ever arose, I would be happy catching up on some housework, reading one of the endless magazines I buy but never have time to read, playing with my cats, watching one of the endless movies I record on video and never have time to watch......... the list is endless!

To get rid bored you have to look at fishes in the aquarium. Will never feel bored. Something new for you, maybe. Buy one small aquarium, fill up with varieties of small fish and all of the accessories...justly nice for you.

I've heard about looking at fish in an aquarium many times...people say it's very relaxing and amusing. I will have to try that myself one day.

I think I know exactly what you mean. Those days are really terrible days. You feel like you are in some sort of prison of some sort. I usually try to sleep because I enjoy sleeping when it rains anyway. I then get back to the TV after a while and try flipping through the channels and hoping to find something new an interesting. I usually don't read though.

I read books, the one that can help me learn new things, like for example im reading the book on how to handle your money/financial literacy. I read also the book of Robert Kiyosaki. The Rich Dad Poor dad, its a very inspiring book. Sometimes i played a guitar and learn new songs and chords and sing my favorite songs, and also i try to compose songs.

usually when youre bored you wouldnt be able to think of anything better to do, like everything else would not work, so usually when im bored i take some chocolate, an energy drink , or 3 cups of coffee, or 2 cans of coca cola, so it would jump start my mood, then everything becomes bearable, like i would start conversing with people, when you involve others boredom will be eliminated.
