Keeping Busy on a Budget

It's inevitable, we all get bored from time to time. Here I have created some super awesome, mind blowing solutions to your dull day problems.


  1. Exercise: Ok, so I know most of you are just going to skip right by this one, but hear me out! This is a great quote I read, I don't know who it's by but I thought it was perfect. "I never regret it when I do it, but i'll always regret it when I don't." IT'S SO TRUE! Anyone who exercises (that should be everyone) knows how much motivation it takes to finally start a workout routine, but trust me it's worth it! Now, how does that apply here? Well it's not just working out to fill in time, it's how you feel after. I read another article somewhere about how after a workout you feel more energetic, more lively and more willing to do something with the rest of your day. You feel 100 ba-gillionskugfiwugekc-illion times better about yourself and it makes you actually WANT to get off the couch or desk chair and have fun! (not that you don't already have fun on the computer...)
  2. Create a Hobby:  You may be thinking, "if I had a hobby I would be doing that and not reading your silly blog!", well ok, chill out! Geeze...(hehe). OK! Assuming you do not have a hobby, lets then create one! I'm sure you have heard before, "well what do you like to do?" The problem is, you don't know. SO, there are two ways to approch this: (1) Think about your favourite subject in school, life, whatever. Try and think of a mini project you can work with on along those lines. Say you like science- look up and experiment on the internet and try to recreate it, say you like music- start taking on an instrument. Maybe you like arts or writing- start a doodle journal. This is a feelance journal (way cooler then a diary) where you can either write in it, draw in it, organize your life in it, the possibilities are endless. All you have to do is open it. Another example would be if you liked gym- look up different outdoor games or make up a new one of your own! You never know, you could have just created the towns next big hit! OR: (2) do the complete opposite of your favourite subject. If your a science guy or gal, try painting/crafts/writing. If you are an artsy person, try doing an experiment, etc. It's amazing what you will try when you are bored.
  3. At Home Spa: If you are sitting at home with nothing to do and no friends to call, then why not take advantage of this 'me time' and create an at home spa for yourself? All you need is your shower, nail polish, facial masks (if you don't have any they are only about $1 CAN at any drugstore or department store), soothing music (could be a movie) and a bathrobe. Take a shower, do your nails, clean your pores and you will be revitalized in no time!
  4. Re-Organize Your Room: Maybe things have become a little too routine for you lately and you just need a change of scenery. Changing your room around is perfect for this type of crisis. It is so rewarding when your done and you will feel like a brand new you with a brand new room!
