You may find it strange but it’s true. Sometimes changing the setting of your room or designing its interior in a different way not only changes your mood from the daily monotonous life but also helps in getting rid of your boredom. If you are a creative person, thousands of thoughts would run into your mind at the same and this will engage you in the task so much that being bored becomes no option.

9. Paint your imagination


This is not only for those who are good at drawing and painting but it goes for all. Even if you think you are the worst painter in the world you can try this. Not in order to judge yourself but yes, this will clear your own vision and can come out with something you never knew you were thinking of as pictures sometimes speak more than words. Sketching your fantasies and coloring your imagination is far better than sitting idle and feeling bored. This activity in your leisure time also helps you to connect with yourself.
8. Why don’t you cook?


This especially goes for all the food lovers. If you are fond of various cuisines and delicious dishes, you can try cooking different varieties of food items in your free time.

Seeing the ravishing greenery of the environment with a cool and calm ambiance, you find a very different kind of relaxing satisfaction. The very sight of kids playing in the park, chirping birds and cool breeze can take you to some other world where you forget all about your tensions. Thus, doing nothing much can also keep you away from gloomy boredom.
5. Pen down your thoughts


It is easy to know about others but when it comes to knowing yourself not many people do. While you are in the company of other people you don’t get time to visualize what you feel and think. So, the best thing to do while you are alone is to write down your thoughts and what you feel. This can be in a poetry form as well if you are good at words and this also polishes your talent. Mind is a machine that works all day long and it is said that ‘Idle Mind Is a Devil’s Workshop’, therefore it is better to pen down what you think instead of just sitting idle and getting bored.
4. Hang out with friends


Friends are the best remedy when you feel like getting bored. Friends are the people who can never let you feel low or bored. Hang outs with them is always very entertaining as well as refreshing. You can simply go on a ride or long drive with your friends as their company itself is good enough to take you out of your boredom. Restaurants, food corners and ice cream stalls are the most popular places among today’s modern generation which is sufficient to cheer you up.
3. Read a book


Though reading is not liked by everyone, but one can find interest in reading if the person selects a book or magazine of his choice. Girls like fashion and trendy stuffs so they can go for magazines about the same. Novels of different genres, story books and even comic books are preferred by many. Books not only increase your knowledge, but also become your guide as well as companion. And, if someone loves reading, then there is no chance of getting bored with books.
