Day 8: What To Do? What To Do?

“HUMAN BEINGS MAKE LIFE SO INTERESTING. DO YOU KNOW, THAT IN A UNIVERSE SO FULL OF WONDERS, THEY HAVE MANAGED TO INVENT BOREDOM.”
– Terry Pratchett; Hogfather

The following post is a post from Dryuary 2016. Boredom is still a landmine for those of us soldiering our way through Dryuary. One thing that has changed is the endless stream of binge-worthy shows on Netflix! Whatever gets us through the night! Thank you, MM Member, SBRS, for this flashback to 2016!

So here you are on Day Eight. Feeling different? Maybe its not all that exciting. Maybe you’re downright bored. Many people taking the challenge get bored. So did I. Here’s a few tips:

Make a to-do list. Write down everything you can think of around the house. People to call on the phone, places to visit. Keep the list in your pocket. When you’re bored, pull it out and do something on it.

Seems simple right?

Some other suggestions from others that have taken the
challenge:
