Things to do when you’re Bored (screen free!)

Hi everyone!

I am sure that we have all been bored at some point in our lives. To be honest, when you are bored you probably just go on your phone and scroll through your socials…. am I right? Not that spending time on your phone is bad, but how much time are you spending staring at that screen? Probably more than you should be…

And that is why I am posting a list of ‘Things to do when you’re bored (screen free!)’.

First off though, announcements!

If you are in the reader, please go to my actual site;

Now that you are on the actual site, you notice the new colors and design!


Please say you do…

Anyways, I spent some time last week and this week working on my blog design! I changed the colors to more of my favorite colors, pastel yellow and blue-green! I also made a blog button, and would love to trade with you! Please visit my blog button page; Friends!

I had a lot of fun designing this, so I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

Now, here is the list that I promised!

Things to do when you’re bored (screen free!):

1 Read a book
2 Experiment with make-up
3 Write a poem
4 Do your homework (or school work!)
5 Organize your pens, markers and colored pencils (perhaps by color)
6 Clean up your room
7 Do laundry
8 Change your sheets
9 Do a challenge (no phone for 24 hours, no sugar for a week, read two books in one week, no make-up for a day)
10 Write a letter to someone
11 Start a prayer journal
12 Doodle
13 Re-decorate your room
14 Organize your bookshelf (by color, by author, by favorites)
15 Plan a morning routine and stick to it for a week
16 Challenge your self to keep your stuff organized
17 Write a story with yourself as the main character
18 Try writing with your non-dominant hand
19 Color in a coloring book
20 Clean your shoes
21 Play a board or card game with your family
22 Think about your week and write down the best parts
23 Make a new pen jar
24 Do some envelope art
25 Practice playing your instrument
26 Go for a walk
27 Do your hair and get dressed up for no reason
28 Make someone laugh by making random animal noises
29 Do a suduko or cross-word puzzle
30 Listen to your favorite music
31 Stretch/exercise
32 Read a motivational or inspirational book

What did you think? What do you do when you are bored? When writing this list I tried to include some actually productive things, because when you are bored, you might just need to do something productive and useful!

Thank you so much for reading! Be sure to comment down below what you think of the new design and what you do when you are bored!

Before I go I have a challenge for you this week!

Copy the list to a word processing document (google docs, microsoft word, or notes on your phone), and when you find yourself bored or out of things to do, read the list and choose something to do! Let me know in the comments what you choose to do!

Thanks again for reading!

A new sign off to go with the blog color scheme!! What do you think?

  1. Hey Haley! Aww your blog redesign looks so nice! ❤ the yellow and blue-green go together so well 🙂
    I'd LOVE to trade blog buttons with you! However I'll wait to do it until I make a new blog button for 'maggie's doodles.' if we traded now it would be my old button with the old name. lol
    These ideas are so awesome! My favorite ones were: write a poem (I'd love to do more poetry!), do a challenge, Write a story with yourself as the main character (that would be so interesting!), and stretch/exercise (I want to do more of that soon)!

    1. Thanks so much!! My favorite colors are yellow and blue-green! I also love pastel colors! ❤
      I can wait to trade buttons until you have a new one made! Perhaps just remind me once you've got one made? 😉
      I had a lot of fun doing this!! I'm glad you liked the ideas!


  2. These are such fun ideas! Thank you Haley. People assume too frequently that there’s nothing screen free that’s interesting enough to do when you’re bored. It’s simply not true! There are many activities to further you, keep you occupied or help you care for yourself and others. Speaking of, when I get home today I need to dust! My room is always clean but it’s well overdue for a surface wipe down.

    And.. awesome list, sis!! 😀 When I am bored, I like to read, blog, do schoolwork, laundry, sing, workout, or go outside on the hammock.
