Things to do when you’re bored

Today I’m sharing some ideas of things to do when you’re bored. I know you can find these posts everywhere, but I had this list compiled on a day when I myself was bored. Maybe you can help me think of even more things that one can do in any situation when we are bored. I grouped some things like exercise and any activity such as hiking, biking, or rock climbing. I guess those are each individual things. I should have compiled it better but I’m sure I’ll have even more editions of this post to come…
