3 Things You Should Do When Bored*


Boredom is not something we can escape, sooner or later it will pop its little head out from under the carpet. When you're sitting at the hospital waiting for your appointment, or in line at the fast-food drive-thru, or when you are waiting for your spouse to finish trying on clothes at the store, you will want something to make the time fly by. So in the modern world there is no shortage of things you can do. You have a little rocket of a computer in your pocket, you can do anything with it. Here are some things that we think you should try out when bored.

Join GoodReads

Goodreads is an online book club that is perhaps the number one place to be if you love reading novels. They have every category under the sun, from fantasy, epic, mythic, horror, mystery, fiction, historical, magical, dystopian, etc. The book club is great for talking about books with other people, as they have open forums for anyone to join and chuck in their two cents. It's also where you can learn about new releases, what their stories could mean and you also get to hangout with the author. Many authors have question and answer periods on GoodReads which is where many of their fans gather to ask them about their books past and future. If you love to read and want to share your opinion about a book, then download the GoodReads app.

Card shark

If you love card games, then maybe checking out a few OnlineCasinos is the way to go. You can play games like blackjack, poker, go fish, gin, rummy and patience to name a few. All of these games are easy to pick up and play, they require skill to become good at and beat seasoned opponents but there is always some kind of luck involved. That is part of the right though, you never know what’s going to happen and you could get out skilled by an opponent and yet out luck them to take the pot. If you like to play other games too like roulette and craps, then you can play these games in the casinos online as well.

Read an essay

There are many good reasons why you should read an essay. It's not just to study how to formulate your own arguments, but also, there are some things that we need to know before we understand our own understanding of a subject. There are great essays published in established media outlets such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Times. They could be about climate change, social unrest, political dilemmas, the state of professions such as law, science and engineering. Or it could be about particular issues that concern the writer only. You can easily read 500 words in about 3-5 minutes so if you have time, you could get through a 2000 word essay in less than 10 minutes.

What do you do when you are bored? Do you find some new game to play? Do you read a book? Or do you concern yourself with contemporary talking points?
