10 Nov Suggestions for not getting bored at home
The year is almost over and one thing we can say for certain is that it’s been an interesting one, right? It’s been a year that’s been a test of our capacity to adapt and the last few months have changed our lifestyles.
Most of us now spend the largest part of our days in our homes and we’d like to give you a few ideas of projects to help occupy your time and keep boredom at bay.
Learn a new language
There are many ways to learn a language or improve one you’ve been trying to master for years. The Internet offers a multitude of online options. An easy and simple idea is to always listen to movies in their original language (i.e. French) and most important watch a movie with its subtitles.
Netflix is full of series and movies that will help you improve your understanding if French is the language you want to master. It is also possible to watch these series or movies in other languages like Spanish, for example.
A healthy body and mind
When you think about it, it doesn’t take much to be able to exercise at home. A mat, a set of weights and, of course, a little motivation.
There are videos on the Internet and cell phone apps that will help you do this. It’s definitely worth getting started.
And, while you’re at it, why not get into meditation, a skill that can help manage your anxiety.
De-clutter your digital data
De-cluttering closets is the latest rage, why not do the same for your digital data? This might not sound like a super entertaining idea, but it will definitely pay dividends if you can find the courage to finally sit down to go through your computer and cell phone to organize the information to keep, and delete what is not relevant.
Your email inbox, for example… How many of us end up with several hundred useless messages that take up too much space?
Checking items off “the list”
In closing, we all have a list that we keep in our head; a list that most of us don’t go through. Now is the time to free ourselves from it once and for all.
Challenge yourself to cross out one item per day or per week. The feeling of accomplishment will be well worth the efforts made to fight against procrastination.
