Taking the first steps to try something new could lead to a new passion, new contacts and something to keep you busy and entertained in future. This does not mean that you have to put yourself under pressure to learn something challenging, but you can fill your time with something to amuse you and perhaps others.
Take a punt on your favourite team
If you have a favourite sport, team or player search out their next game and do some research on their current form so that you can get a feel for how their next game will go. Having done this search out a welcome betting bonus on an online sportsbook and place a bet on the final result or any variety of in-game bets. This adds an entirely new level of excitement to watching the game which could even make you money if your bet comes good.
Learn a TikTok dance
TikTok dances are easy to learn and lots of fun. There are plenty of dances that are trending so you can challenge yourself to learn one of them. This is a great way to get off your sofa and get moving which is a good way to release the feel-good endorphins if you are stuck at home with not a lot to do. Show off how naturally gifted you really are as a dancer with one of the following dances: Say So by Doja Cat, Lottery by K Camp, Don't Start Now by Dua Lipa and Vibe by Cookiee Kawaii.
Start writing your book
If you are an aspiring writer, talking about the book you always wanted to write, change from being an aspiring writer to being a real one. You do not have to write everything in one sitting. Ernest Hemingway wrote just 500 words in one day and Tom Wolfe even less at 135 words a day, but these books were made into movies, so have patience with yourself as you plan your writing time as you never know where this might lead you.
Play Fortnite with 100 others
Playing video games online opens up the chance to meet up, chat and enjoy some great games with current friends or friends you have not yet met. You can play console games on Xbox or PlayStation where you can communicate via a gaming headset during playing. You may want to take your chances on Minecraft, the most popular video game in the world in which eight players meet online for a game that can last for months. For something more anarchic, Fortnite: Battle Royale sees 100 players on an island who each have to fight for survival either alone or as a squad, which is the most fun.
Pick up a book
Lose yourself in another world by reading a great novel or feel empowered by a biography or historical work. Ask your friends for recommendations or look at the list of 100 books one should read in a lifetime whether you want to stick with classic novels, science fiction, comic books or something else.
