Bored? Here are some fun things to do this year

By on February 15, 2017

If you’re just plain sick of being barraged by politics online and on social media, and you’re desperate to actually do something fun, we’ve got some great ideas for you. These days, it can be embarrassing to admit that you’re bored when there’s so much to do, but the fact is, sometimes we all work so hard that it can be surprising to find ourselves suddenly with an hour or two to spare.

If this sounds like you, this list is great to keep on hand so that the next time you’re wondering how to keep yourself entertained you can go ahead and choose a great idea and get straight into “fun” mode.

Play games online

The internet is a wonderful thing, and useful for more than commenting on political posts about Donald Trump or watching cat videos. In fact did you know that you can play games like poker in an online casino? In fact there are many Arabic casinos where you can play online poker and win money online while still having a great time- even from your own couch.



I know, I know, at first glance this may not sound all that fun, but trust me: when you start to see a difference in your body it will soon become one of your favourite things to do.

For those that hate the gym, you don’t need to go and slog it out on the treadmill or stationary bike, and there are many fun classes like Body Pump, Body Combat, Spin, and more which will help you get fit and toned without causing boredom in the process.

Still have no intention of going to the gym? No problem. Grab the dog (or go by yourself), and find a nice track to walk, or commit to going on a hike in the weekend. Getting outdoors is a great way to relieve stress, and you’ll also find that you can get in some exercise without needing to step foot in a gym. Another good option is to sign up for a class you’ve always wanted to try- like salsa dancing or a martial art. This is a great way to ensure you’re getting fit while meeting new people and learning a new skill.


Recently, it has almost become uncool to go out, with people saying that staying in is the new going out. Unfortunately though, we can get so wrapped up in connecting on social media that pretty soon weeks have gone by without actually seeing our friends.

Make 2017 the year that you commit to going out a little more than usual. Maybe you can have a weekly date with your friends that never gets broken, and each time you can go to a different restaurant or movie, or maybe you can invite more friends around to your home so you don’t have to go out if you’re the introverted type.
