How to kill boredom

Updated: May 28, 2021

How to kill boredom in a moderately creative way because you’ve run out of things to watch on Netflix

Preparation time: 15-120 minutes

Calorie count: 0 calories


  • Time to kill

  • Family/Friends/Yourself

  • Stuff lying around the house that you probably didn’t need anyways


  1. Make a maquette/dollhouse. Because we all wanted to, at some point. This will probably require a lot of time but on the other hand, you can probably make it out of things you already have!

  2. Learn embroidery. It’s a perfect time-killer and it’s actually not that hard to make it look nice, I promise!

  3. Try out a new drawing/painting technique. If you’re on this website, you most probably have a lot of art supplies at home ;) make use of them! Try new paint set, mix different techniques or take out good ol’ crayons you haven’t touched for years.

  4. Buy a cheap instrument online and learn to play it. I’m a bit of an impulsive buyer and so I’m sure that you can buy instruments impulsively as well. A ukulele or recorder is perfect for that as they are inexpensive and quite easy to learn.

  5. Pretend to be a photographer. Put on your face mask, keep a safe distance and just go, take pictures. I’m not saying it’s the best idea to go outside now but hey, we all need oxygen and I’m starting to forget what it feels like to be outside. So yea, take some nice pictures (you can watch photography tutorials before doing so) and after you can even play a bit with Photoshop or other apps.

  6. Sketch scenes from a movie. This one is great for those of you who love sketching and want to improve in it. Play a movie, preferably one you know by heart anyway and pause it every now and then. You can give yourself a time limit for each scene you sketch or just go with the flow. Movies are made to look good for the eye, so most probably, whenever you pause you’ll end up with a nice view to work on!

  7. Write something. It can be an essay on a topic that interests you, a poem, an article or even a novel about your life. Writing is truly freeing. You don’t have to share it with anyone, it doesn’t have to be good. It just has to be yours.

Bon Appetit!
