25 Things To Do When Bored

Self Isolation Activities!

Are you stuck at home, slowly going crazy? Looking for things to do when bored? With our busy schedules, it’s hard to even imagine being bored, but quarantine and self-isolation has even the busiest people, slowing down.

If you’re like me, you need to stay busy and productive to stay happy! And occupying a 5-year-old all day, isn’t doing it for me.

This list of 25 self isolation activities should keep you busy for at least a few days! It’s working for me!

  • Throw out any socks and tights with holes in them.
  • Take in a couch concert! Everyone from Billie Eilish to Elton John is doing it!
