Re: Masterlist of Boredom Breakers

With the holidays on, I need some ideas. I'm also going to include a few of my own!

Binge a new tv series! (LEGO Ninjago if you haven't already Smiley Wink) also The Hollow is pretty good (also animated) but there's also Brooklyn Nine Nine for comedies and it's not animated either, plus the show Community... I should stop now Smiley Tongue

Hi @N1ghtW1ng


I love this thread, so important now with the school and uni holidays happening!


ReachOut has a chill style quiz and some fact sheets with suggestions of ideas too here (not sure if you have seen these but there's some great ideas!).


I always like doing puzzles, playing video games, sitting in the sun with a coffee and walking around IKEA

Re: Masterlist of Boredom Breakers

Hugging a cat.

Getting lost on YouTube.

Reading a book.

Sitting out in the sun day dreaming.

Texting/messaging people I haven't spoken to in ages.

Eating chocolate.


Watching a funny movie.


Vacuuming the house - there is something satisfying about vacuuming the house as it makes the place look cleaner.

Sorting out the junk areas of your room/house. 

Finding a new café - I google cafés in *my area or area close to me* and pick one that looks interesting. I have also done the same with giftshops and book stores. 

Getting lost on RO (there is so much stuff to discover on RO!).

Reading blogs.

Playing around with makeup/pampering myself.

Reading Reddit.

Rediscovering Neopets. 

Doing random job searches and trying to find the strangest possible jobs or highest earning shops or most isolated jobs. 

Looking at real estate online and in random places - so apparently you can buy a castle for the same price as a house in Sydney?! I also do the same with Airbnb listings and plan out a holiday for a random place.


Whatever it takes I know I can make it through!
