Bored on Your Computer? Here are Five Things to Do

We have all been there…looking at the abyss of our computer screen without anything to do. Nowadays, it can happen more frequently as we are spending much more time indoors because of the COVID pandemic. Here are some things you can do to burn some free time on your computer, and keep yourself entertained, thanks to our sponsor Skillshare!

Watch a movie or a new television series

Movies are a great way to keep yourself entertained. Even if one is an avid movie watcher, since there are millions of movies to watch, one can be certain that there are movies that they did not already watch.

Not a movie fan? No worries, television series are another great way to kill time and indulge yourself in a new experience. Just like movies, there are millions of series to choose from, and you can always find a new series that you haven’t already watched.

Nowadays, with companies such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, which provide thousands if not millions of movies, documentaries and television series in the comfort of your own house, this is one of the easiest methods to kill time online.

Play online games

Whatever genre of games you interest yourself on, rest assured you are going to find a game that suits you. There are thousands of websites that provide many online games to kill the time, from action games to puzzle games, they have it all. This is a great way to kill time and keep yourself occupied.

Listen to Music

Sometimes, enjoying some of your favorite music is what you really need to relax and pass your free time. It doesn’t really matter what genre you prefer, as nowadays, all of the music you can imagine, is available at the click of a button. 

There are many different ways to listen to music on your computer. You can always use platforms such as youtube, where there are many music videos to choose from. Streaming platforms continue to dominate the market, as Spotify continues to stand out.

Make use of social media

We have heard it before, “Get rid of social media and go outside,” in this time of the pandemic, there are only a few opportunities to socialize with friends ad family physically. The rise of Facebook and other communication platforms was pretty noticeable before COVID-19, but the virus locked us inside, so we always seek ways to keep in touch with those closest to us or make new friends.

Whether you are still inside because of the pandemic or not, you can still spend some time on your personal computer chatting with other people and keeping in touch with your peers. It is also possible to communicate via video call, and this will further make you feel like you are together in the same room, making the communication much more enjoyable.

Learn a new hobby

Whether it is related to your current career, a job you are thinking of working for the future, or just something you are deeply interested in, there is always a new skill to learn online, and you should not have problems finding new and interesting topics to learn about in the form of articles or videos.

Thanks to Skillshare, numerous tutorial videos on YouTube and other tutorial websites, you can select a topic of your choosing and learn new things and skills. Learning new skills is always a positive thing, as there is no such thing as too much knowledge, and it can only help you in the future.
