Productive Things To Do When You’re Bored

Hello there! Todays post will be productive ideas to do when you’re bored. These are great ideas for quarantine or anytime where you don’t have anything to do.

Productive Ideas:

  • Clean your inbox. I recently did this and deleted all my spam emails. It took forever, but it felt so good when it was done.
  • Clean out your closet. I’ve done this multiple times since Covid-19 started.
  • Meal plan. If your like me and make meals for your family, then this is the perfect, productive activity.
  • Delete pictures. I like to go through all my old photos and delete all the blurry, accidental and duplicate pictures to clear up my storage.
  • Delete old files on your computer. I recently did this and I felt so organized after. I had multiple files that I needed once, and never used them again, so I deleted them.
  • Create a financial plan. This is so useful and wise. It doesn’t need to be fancy, just a simple plan to help manage your spending.
  • Write in planner/calendar. I love to plan things!
  • Clean out your junk drawer. Admit it. We all have a junk drawer that’s begging to be organized.
  • Create a bullet journal. Why not? I’m actually beginning this right now.
  • Write a handwritten card. The person receiving it will feel so loved.
  • Workout. You could run or do a strength training exercise. I recommend Lilly Sabri for intense workouts.
  • Stretch. This is good for your body and it’s productive, so its the perfect bored activity. I recommend Anna McNulty for deep stretches.

There it is! I hope you enjoyed them.

Did you do any of these things in quarantine? Are you planning to do any of these things? Do you have anymore ideas? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Great post, Miriam!! I’m always so busy I don’t have time to be bored, lol, but if I ever want to take a little break from writing and stuff these are great options. When I’m taking a break I usually do some sketching or work on story prompts.
    What’s a bullet journal? 😂 I actually do not know.

    1. Thank you, Joy! Yeah, I’m pretty busy too, but there are some days where it feels like I have nothing to do.😂 A bullet journal is a organization system/notebook that allows you to track everything in your life. They’re completely customizable and I’d definitely recommend you try one!😃

  2. Oooh! This was very helpful. I get bored occasionally and there are lists of things to do when you are bored, but none of them really get something done. (if that makes sense) I like this list because it is very productive!

    1. Yay, I’m glad! Yeah, I always see lists that say to do craft or something, and don’t get me wrong crafts are great. But sometimes I want to do something productive and feel good afterwards.😉 I’m so happy you like the list!💕

  3. These are some great ideas, Miriam! I’m absolutely NEVER bored, lol, but these are still some productive things that I’ll admit I need to do. xD Argh, you should see my blog folder. I have over 407 unread posts in there 🤣🤣 So that’s today’s goal, is to read through all of them, like them, comment, and unfollow some of the ones I don’t read very often. xD (Don’t worry, yours is definitely not going to make that list!)

    Great post!!

    1. Thank you so much, Addie! Yeah, I haven’t been bored recently, but I still wanted to make a list.😂 I actually need to do most of these things on my list…😆 Whoa! I need to do the same thing, there lots of blogs I need to unfollow because I don’t read the posts, and your blog is DEFINITELY NOT ONE OF THEM (because your blog is one of my favorites😘)!! Thanks again!
