Curbing The Lockdown Boredom

Lockdown is boring. All of those weeks you thought that sitting around at home would be way better than going to work proved to be incorrect. Working from home was something to daydream about, but the thing is that it’s all fun to daydream about until you have no choice but to work from home. The key word here is “choice” – we are all in lockdowns for the best for the world, but it doesn’t mean that we have to be happy about it. It can become very boring very quickly but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t ways that you can entertain yourself.

We are looking out for one another and the right thing to do is to stay inside. So, from reading about Online Casino Industry Trends in 2021 and becoming a dab-hand at poker, to starting a newfound love of knitting, you can make sure that COVID-19 does not take your creativity from you. So, you need to figure out how to dispel the boredom and we’ve got a few tips for curbing it during this time!

  • Get fit. Spending the time during lockdown working on you is important. Not only will you be able to focus on exercise, you can work on your food. You could even expand this by learning how to cook and learning how to batch cook meals. All you need is ingredients and freezer space, and great videos on YouTube. Getting fit gives you a chance to work on your health and you feel rewarded afterwards
  • Virtual games. The world of the internet is a huge one, and you have online gaming sites, online casinos and pub quizzes available to play online. The list of the different online casino games is endless. There are plenty of websites out there that you can join for free, and you can even get together with your friends to do a Zoom pub quiz as a group! If you love gaming online, you can use consoles and online board games, too. These will enable you to make new friends, and you can play everything from chess to Cards Against Humanity! It’s brilliant fun and it gives you a break from the four walls of your home!
  • Baking. We talked about learning to cook, but have you considered learning to bake? Whether it’s perfecting pastries or curating cupcakes with a range of flavors. You can pass the time with baking, and you could give your bakes to your neighbors and family with doorstep drop offs. Not only does baking give you a new lease on life, you geet to put out your creativity and evolve a new hobby. You never know, you could end up making an income off of this.
  • Catch up on reading. That stack of books you bought for your Kindle? They need to be paid some attention! The world is on pause right about now, and that means that you have the time right now to get through them. There’s something incredibly therapeutic about reading and you can do so much of it when you’re stuck in lockdown!

My name is Richie and I am a 39 year old father of two, a daughter and son. I am married to a beautiful woman named Destiny. She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network security administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
