How to not feel bored in the house while in global lockdown

Category : Lifestyle

‘Bored in the house and I’m in the house bored’ – if you’ve been on TikTok these days, then you should definitely know this tune. Unfortunately, innocent lyrics have become a reality for millions of people as the world went into global lockdown.

However, it doesn’t have to be this way. There are plenty of things that you can do to stop the boredom. If you want to find out what those are, all you have to do is keep reading. So without any further ado, let’s get into.

Organize a movie (or series) marathon

Everyone has movies or TV series that they always wanted to watch, but never had time due to school, work or other responsibilities.

Well, now it’s the perfect time to do it. There are so many to choose from that everyone is bound to find something for themselves.

Plus, since the movie theatres are closed, many distributors are actually releasing the long-awaited movies, such as Birds on Prey, earlier on digital platforms.

Here are some of the things that you might want to watch when you feel like doing a movie marathon:

  • all Spiderman movies
  • the entire Star Wars franchise
  • all the movies in the Marvel cinematic universe
  • all Harry Potter movies

If you are not really in the mood for a movie, but for a series, here are some that you might find interesting, and are available on free Netflix:

  • Game of Thrones
  • Orange is The New Black
  • Money Heist
  • The Witcher
  • Stranger Things

Start Reading a Book

Just like there are movies that you didn’t have time to watch, you probably also have books that you were planning to read, but something always got in the way.

Even if you don’t have any in mind, there are so many great books that not reading them would be a crime.

Let’s start with the classics – ‘The Scarlet Letter’ by Nathaniel Hawthorne, ‘Taming of the Shrew’ by William Shakespeare or ‘Paradise Lost’ by John Milton are just a few of thousands of classics that are worth reading.

The best part? You don’t have to have a physical book in your hand – you can download it from the internet, or rent it from a virtual library.

If you don’t think that classics are for you, you can always reach for books that were your favourites when you were a child – surely reading them will bring back many memories from your youth, and you can spend your afternoon reminiscing about the past…
