During boredom, different thoughts tends to occupy our mind. Some of the thoughts, sometimes can be very annoying especially when it gets to remind us about a moment we’re already getting healed from but got brought back as a result of boredom-ness.
However, social media during these moments most times doesn’t help us get through because our timeline might be filled with tons of updates that’ll make us even more bored.

Well, worry not much, we’ve got you covered with things you can do when bored. Wait, have you seen list of 35 business you can start in student area? Check out here…

Here’s list of 15 things you can do when bored;

1. Reading


Reading has been one of the ancient method of getting information. Right from stone age till/to CE (common era), people who read are often recognized in the society – since reading brings about understanding, while understanding brings communication.
Don’t let boredom clothe your regular attitudes, instead, get yourself an interesting novel and flip through while digesting every ink labelled in. You might even end up realizing “Reading” as your hidden hobby. 🙂


2. Gaming.


“People(soldier) come, people go, – Gaming remains the barrack that wouldn’t make a shift. GAMING LIVES ON!.” Wrap that boredom up, grab a PAD (gaming pad) and get your hands dancing on it while romancing the keys…
Well, gaming, not necessarily video games, you can try out other genre of games, like LUDO, WHOT, CHESS, etc. Gaming doesn’t only cure boredom, it makes you SMART also.


3. Write Blog Post.
