27 Things to do When You're Bored

Now that I've created the title for this post, I have to admit that I can't remember a time when I was bored. I've always been a reader, and there's always something to read – a book, magazine, text message, cereal box, or road signs. But I've heard enough people claim to be bored, so I thought I'd make some suggestions to keep you from yawning.

  1. Read any book by Lena Nelson Dooley.
  2. Rearrange your furniture.
  3. Read a book written by Martha Rogers.
  4. Clean out a closet.
  5. Read a book by Brandi Boddie.
  6. Send notes to all your friends, thanking them for being there for you.
  7. Read a Beth Shriver book.
  8. Weather permitting, spread a blanket in your yard, lie down on the grass, and study the clouds. If there are no clouds, take a nap.
  9. Read a Darrel Nelson book.
  10. Create a bucket list and start working on it.

  15. Read any book by Greg Mitchell.
  16. Go to a public park, sit on a bench, and make up stories about the people who pass by.
  17. Read one of Mike Dellosso's books.
  18. Paint an old piece of furniture and find a place in your home or yard to display it.

  22. Mow your neighbor's lawn.
  23. Read poetry by Cherie Burbach.
