With every one of us having to spend a lot of time at home due to the current pandemic, boredom can often set in especially if we have nothing to do but sit at home and watch tv.
I’m writing this post in the middle of the lockdown. The best way to combat boredom is to stay busy and kill some time by occupying the mind and learning or creating something new.
With all the spare time on our hands, now is the perfect opportunity to do something we’ve always wanted to do that we never got round to doing. Even when this is all over, these ideas can still be done at home in our spare time.
