The current Covid-19 pandemic has made life difficult for everybody. With the lockdown imposed upon us to contain the spread of infection, people have been confined to their homes for the past 3-4 months.

“Work from home” keeps a person busy through the day. However, that is only during office hours. After that, the four walls seem like a prison when you know that you cannot step out freely. Slowly the boredom starts creeping on you and that leads to frustration.

A little creativity and enthusiasm can help you tide over the boredom and put the time to some constructive, good use.

Why do we get bored? Well, the simple reason is that we do not have any aim or task to look forward to. Nevertheless, if your hands are full with work or creative endeavors, you will never feel bored.

Here are some suggestions that will keep you busy and happy and will make you wonder where the time has gone.

  1. dog painting a picture: When you are busy in the daily routine, especially the free time when you have outside office hours, you seldom get time to keep your things in place or keep the room tidy. Weekends are for general cleaning and relaxing after a tiring week. Thus, this is the best opportunity to take care of this task. Take time to go through your stuff, sort out what is important and useful and what is not. It makes sense to get rid of all unwanted items and then tidy up the room. You will feel a lot better by seeing a cleaner (and probably bigger) living space
  1. dog painting a pictureNow that you have tidied up the house and disposed off all unwanted stuff, you will find the place more open and bare. Use your imagination and unleash your creativity to re-do the place by simple reshuffling of furniture or art pieces. If your creative self permits, then try to do a small canvas painting or handicraft to brighten up the space. It is a very apt saying, “Variety is the spice of life”; so, by adding some variety to the décor, you will create a fresh and inviting place.
  2. dog painting a picture Nowadays, everyone is so hooked up on computers and mobiles, that the old board games like chess, ludo, snakes and ladders, monopoly and others are long forgotten. There are many card games too, like Pontoon, Blackjack or just playing cards. During every vacation, these cards or board games were the main source of keeping all occupied and happy for long hours together. However, since video and online games have taken over, these old favorites have been confined in a box or cupboard. Now is the moment to bring them out and spend quality family time while enjoying the games.
  1. dog painting a pictureTrust me; there is no place like kitchen to de-stress. Trying out new recipes and putting your culinary skills to test is the best stress buster activity and creative too. Who knows? You may be the next Master Chef in making. Cooking as well as baking can keep you busy for a long time.
  2. dog painting a pictureUndoubtedly, we like to click pictures of the places that we visit and the ceremonies that we attend like weddings, birthdays, naming ceremony and others. Why do we do that? Well, to capture those precious moments forever so that we can look back at them later. You must have thousands of pictures taken over the years, but never had an opportunity to sort or arrange them categorically. Make the most of the time on hand now and make labeled albums of these pictures after taking prints. If you wish to retain them in digital form, then arrange them folder wise and if possible make a slideshow for a family viewing in future.
  1. dog painting a picture Your busy schedule never permits you to spend some quality time with nature. What are you waiting for? Now is the time to show the world that you have green fingers; plant some decorative plants or floral plants to beautify the home. Do not forget to create a small kitchen garden in few pots with daily essentials like chilies, tomatoes, quick growing veggies or some herbs. Caring for the plants will keep you busy in a constructive way.
  2. dog painting a picture When you decide to pursue a hobby, there is no count of time. One gets engrossed in the activity so much, that there is no realisation about how time flies! A Hobby can be anything that you wanted to do all the while, but did not have time –like playing a musical instrument, painting, running, sculpting – just about anything, that makes you happy.
  3. dog painting a picture Books are a man’s best friend. There are many genres to choose from – biographies, mystery, comedy, romantic novels and others. There are knowledge-imparting history, general knowledge, space and universe, animal kingdom and much more. A good book can keep you occupied for a long time.
  4. dog painting a picture Remember the time when the parents wanted to keep the kids busy, so that they would be less mischievous. They would entrust the children some jigsaw puzzles that took hours to complete. The bigger the puzzle with many pieces, the more complicated it was to solve. It was surely a game of patience and concentration. This comes in handy now too, when you feel bored. Sit with a puzzle of over 100 odd pieces and you will be lost in setting it right.
  5. dog painting a picture There is no limit of age to learning. In the same manner, a person can possess many skills to enhance his personality. Your busy work schedule did not permit you to try your hand at something new. Nonetheless, now that there is lot of time at your disposal (since you are working from home), you can try to find a skill that you wish to master. It may be learning a new language or some computer skill that may be useful in your work or some creative activity that fascinates you.
  6. dog painting a picture There were many good movies in early times and some were super classics. Try to get them from a CD library or download and watch it. Watching these old classics with the family is a great way to spend some quality family time. Do not forget to sit with a bowl of popcorn to munch on to give that perfect theatre feel.
  7. dog painting a picture One may feel that in this computer age, everyone stays connected with each other through social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and so on. However, these are all virtual meetings. Take some time to call them on phone and talk to them. Catch up on good old days and relive your memories. This helps to establish a better bond that is more real and warm. In the family, there has been no communication since ages with many members. Show them that you care by your simple “hello” over the phone. Same applies to old school or college friends.

These are some ideas that you can choose from to kill your boredom. However, mind you, it is every individual’s prerogative to spend the time as he / she wants.

Our mindset prompts us that we are bored. If we look at every activity we perform through the day, we come to know that in some cases the performance can be better if we give them more time than rushing through. Now that you have the question of how to kill the time, make it point to do the household chores in a systematic and thorough manner so that the task will be perfect and you will spend good amount of time in completing that.

The present situation has taken its toll on everyone and it is but natural to get frustrated and bored. However, you should learn to look on brighter side of life and realise that this condition is actually a blessing in disguise, as it allows you to breathe a little freely from your otherwise hectic schedule.

When you are busy in normal routine, you keep complaining for lack of free time or quality time to spend or do something that you like. The irony is that now when you have that “time”, you are complaining of how to pass it!

Humans can never be satisfied with anything, there is always some new complaint popping up. Thus, unless you learn to respect and follow time, you will be forever at a loss. Boredom is how you look at it. If there is a creative streak in you, then rest assured, you will never be bored. Utilisation of time to do something constructive other than your routine work. This is the mantra of leading a fulfilled life.

Even though some ideas mentioned above give a head start to killing the boredom, I am sure you can come up with some novel ideas of your own and spend your time in a happy manner. Time is precious, do not waste it and regret later.

This is great belt for me when I am working around the house. Seems like I have ruined a number of belts from either getting them damp, or trying to attach tool holsters. I like the way it fills the belt loops and keeps the top rim of my jeans with a tidy edge.
No unpleasant surprises. It's comfortable. The weave and thickness do not disappoint. Wish the other colors and sizes were still available
I was just looking at photos of my items and in two photos it shows five pairs and I received only four! I looked in my laundry area and found nothing! I like the product but if I suppose to have five, Id like five?
Love this bag. It fits everything just perfect.
very weak zipper.
What can one say about socks? Fit as expected. Surprisingly thick for the price. This is significant when a decent pair of socks that is more than a "linty sandwich bag" seems so hard to find. These are a good buy and with that good-bye.
Hat was shipped in a FLAT BOX. Completely ruined the shape of the hat. Beyond disappointed. I know you get what you pay for, but I had another one delivered the day before that was actually cheaper and it looked 100 times better than this one.
It gives me a very positive energy!
This was perfect for my daughter and her BFF. They always joke about being lilo and stitch. The quality feels very sturdy and the craftsmanship of the design looks great. The girls are younger so no housekey. Instead they are going to use them for backpack pulls.
For the ladies - I normally wear an XL in ladies items. Going by the previous reviews I ordered a Med. It fits great! Plenty of room for clothes underneath but not too baggy!
Does not have pockets, does not fit description.
They are a very silky feeling comfy material. Good pair of shorts. The only thing is they are slightly see-through when the sun hits them just right, but with the inner lining I have personally not found this to be an issue. (Granted I am running with my college CC team and we could care less if someone's shorts are transparent)

Great shorts for the price. (mine were $11)
Ordered two pair of 505s. One medium stonewashed and one dark stonewashed. The medium stone washed was made in Nicaragua and is a very tight fighting 36 waist. The dark stonewashed was made in Bangladesh and fits perfect. I have run into this before with Levis. Very disappointing for a "USA Company"...
Travels to Europe
Nice colors and quality
i love the colors!
My brother saw my husbands Trump 2020 cap and wanted me to get him one. I pulled up the Trump caps and he saw this one and wanted it. When it was delivered (ahead of schedule) he sent me this picture and said he loved it and all his friends was trying to buy it off of him. I will probably be ordering a couple more for my husband and myself.
My wife and I both put them on and took them off at night and other than the yellow tint, couldn't tell the difference. There was little drop in light or glare although they are listed as polarized. The lack of ventilation can cause fogging.
Perfect darkness for the Florida sun
Good quality basic bowtie. Looks nice, feels nice.
Perfect small purse. Have lot of room
Left leg out side seam was running down the front of paints. Bad stitch job also bad inspection should have never sold. Noticed that Levi has been doing this a lot. May be looking into new brand to buy.
Good quality cap.
Nice bracelet
Purple is my favorite color so I love it!
The wallet was big enough and it had enough slides for business cards very well-made. Like it a lot.
Cute wallet. Three different areas for cards. Two wallets on one.
Nice and Soft
Love it, although I could still use a little bit of extra space on the inside. Beautiful patterns. Love you have an option for a cross body strap and/or a wristlet.écontractés-Pantalon-Printemps
