6 Different Ways To Avoid Boredom

We all get bored from time to time but for our wheelchair users, it can be daunting. That is why we are going to provide different cool ways you won’t have to face this problem anymore. If you are reading this article and you do not happen to use a wheelchair then you can still use these methods. The activities that are going to be showcased are not hard to do activities but they are interesting ones and definitely fun.

1. Blogging

We had to include blogging in one of the methods because it not only helps kill time pretty fast but you can learn a lot. It might even fall into two because learning can be one in itself. You can choose a variety of different topics and research it unless it is something you have vast knowledge about. If you want a step by step guide on how to start a blog then we will do you the favor and link you to a blogging guide for beginners. Here is the link. 




2. Learn a Foreign Language 

Learning a new language can be more than just killing time if you think about all the benefits it can provide. This task will not be just a one day type of thing because it’s really hard to learn a new language in just one day. There are many languages to choose from but you should consider learning a new language that s used by a country that you have traveled to or currently travel to. For example, every year you travel to France for the summer. Now if you have time when you are bored then you should consider that language more then the rest because when you go to France everything will make more sense to you.



3. Start a Collection 

Starting a collection does not mean counting all the socks you have in your drawer. It means to collect what you truly love and have a passion for. Maybe you want to collect all of our wheelchairs, that can be counted as a collection because of the variety you will have. If you notice you are always watching youtube videos of cars being built so for that you can collect diecast models of different cars you have own or just want. This boredom slasher idea may be a bit costly because you have to purchase everything.




4. Photography 

There is a lot to learn when it comes to taking pictures. You need to learn about the camera you are going to use and the way taking pictures works because it’s an art. It would take pages to teach it so there will be a link here so you can learn more about it and the technical aspect of it. The camera does not have to be a high-end camera either, you could also use your own smartphone camera depending what smartphone model you have. If you take the smartphone route then they have apps to help you take better pictures. When you have the equipment part taken care of, you can now think of what you want to snap pictures of. 



5. Start Painting/Drawing 

This activity is pretty straightforward. Buy a canvas and buy materials you are going to use to draw or paint with and find a model or item. Since this will be conducted mostly indoors you can choose a pet that likes to sit still because a cat, for example, will just get up and move when you are in the middle of your drawing. Use your imagination let it run wild and just start sketching whatever comes to mind. This is a link to help spark some creativity if you need it.




6. Travel Virtually 

A very interesting option is to travel using the internet. Sounds crazy right? It’s possible with the use of services like Earthcam and Google Earth. You will probably spend countless of hours on these two sites because it is amusing to watch another city place in real time. If you always wanted to go to Times Square and had no idea what it was like there then you can use one of these services and kill your boredom to enjoy the livestream of it.
