I’m unfortunately currently in a situation where I don’t have a lot of options for activities and find myself somewhat bored… What do you do when you’re bored?

    There is always self improvement. Read, exercise, meditate. So much philosophy is public domain, if you have internet access and a device to read ebooks on then you can read most of the famous texts. https://www.gutenberg.org/ is great. If you have access to a local library then use that as well. You can access almost anything with a library card.

      Libraries even have video games including consoles nowadays, in some places. Can’t go wrong with a library card.

      If your home gets too cold for extended office work in winter without massively increasing your energy bill you can also use their premises just fine as long as you stick to their rules.

    I drive lots on the weekends, so I listen to podcasts. I’m currently listening to “Behind the Bastard” and I’m spending time here and there reading up on very dark history that I was never taught in any level of school.

    So to answer your question, podcasts and reading! I’ve also made lists and info sheets on all sorts of things like what to look for in health food supplements, what my regiment is when I’m sick, list of books to read, ideas for birthday gifts, price comparisons… I also recently bought a Kalimba so that’s keeping me busy, too. It’s an instrument that’s easy to carry, so I dream of being able to play it by a camp-fire since I am hopeless at guitar.

    Try to find something that involves physical activity and interaction.

    If you have a community center or neighborhood gym or shared garden, go hang out there, you’ll usually find something to do.

    Call a relative you haven’t talked to in a while. Is there an elderly person in the neighborhood you’re acquainted with? Give them a call, go check in on them.

    Recently got into sewing. Would recommend! If you can find a nice second hand sewing machine, you can have a pretty cheap new hobby!
