As the UK is now halfway through its second lockdown, you may be beginning to feel like you’re spending most days twiddling with your thumbs through boredom – and that’s completely understandable! For the first time in decades, we have been forced to stay inside for our own safety, but in today’s generation, we live a fast paced life that’s full to the brim of exciting activities and things to look forward to. When that’s suddenly taken away, it can be difficult to know what to do with yourself, so we’ve got some amazing ideas that will help bust that boredom for the next few weeks or so!
Find a new hobby
If you’re into things like sewing, reading, or even doing up cars, you may have exhausted your current hobbies already! Finding a new hobby will help pass the time, and also expand your knowledge on something new. There are loads of weird and wonderful hobbies out there, and you may be surprised at which one takes your fancy! Not only will a new hobby help pass the time over these final weeks of lockdown, but it will give you a new hobby to continue with even long after restrictions are lifted!
Host a tarot card evening
An unusual yet fun way to spend an evening or two, is by hosting a tarot card night! Whether you’re skeptical or not, the history of psychics is very interesting and can spark many debatable conversations. While you may not be able to have a large gathering at your home, you could host a tarot card evening via Zoom or FaceTime!

Do some DIY
Lockdown is the perfect excuse to get those odd jobs done around the house that you’ve been meaning to do for ages. If you’ve been quick off the mark and already done those odd jobs, then why not use the next few weeks to redecorate parts of your home? This could be a complete makeover of a neglected room, or upcycling old and tired looking pieces of furniture to give them a new lease of life. DIY can be extremely therapeutic, and will leave you feeling satisfied at the end of each day.
Try out a new game
If you’re a keen gamer, now is the perfect chance to try something new! There have been many new popular game releases lately such as the remastering of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1&2, so why not give them a go?
Finally, another great way of passing time during lockdown is by giving yourself a challenge that lasts over a few weeks or a month. Challenges such as the squat challenge, walking 10,000 steps a day, or even no alcohol for a month will help focus your energy into something else and benefit your health at the same time!
