  • Add StumbleUpon too in your list, it is a great platform.

    btw it really feels bad when you spend one heck of a time on Internet and then you get bored.

    It’s like a dead end, you don’t know where to go now to kill the boring situation.

  • Hi Atish,

    Love your tips to overcome boredom. 🙂

    However, honestly speaking, I have yet to come across a phase and time when I am bored!! I really have NO time to get bored, though I wish I had that sometimes because it’s good to sit idle and just carefree and enjoy life.

    Nevertheless, whenever I find such a period, it is usually time for me to close my laptop and just read some books or listen to soft music – anything to take my mind off and sit carefree, away from the computer.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Have a nice weekend 🙂

  • Frankly speaking, this post is not useful for me (sorry for this Atish)

    Seriously, I don’t have time to get bored as I’m super busy with home, blogging and writing work.

    Whenever I get time, I do visit some valuable blogs to learn something new and advance my skills.

    Anyway, thanks for your nice ideas, hope it would be beneficial post for the people who really feel bore at most of the times.
