Looking out for your future

2) Write a letter to your future self

If you have the time, you should write yourself a letter to your future self. Reading these letters and writing them are both so much fun to discover your past.

Plus you won’t be bored anymore and have something to look forward to in the future.

3) Draw your dream house

This activity is always fun to do, as you imagine what your future will be like and sometimes we get the best creative ideas from this process.


4) Build a fort

Home built forts are always fun to make. Besides, all you have to do is get some house furniture like pillows and blankets.

Then you stack the tall pillows or some chairs and use the blanket as a roof for the top. And done! That’s really all it takes to create a basic fort.

5) Plan your dream vacation

Ever wanted to go Sydney, Australia or Paris, France. Well now you have to chance to create the ultimate dream vacation on all the places you’ve ever wanted to visit or re-visit. Start with a paper and pencil and get plannin’.


6) Learn a new language

Learning a new language will already benefit your future, so you might well learn one or two new ones. Although learning a language in general is a bit time consuming, you will most definitely be grateful you did in the future.

Some apps I use are Duolingo and language Drops for world languages. But “Hello Chinese” and “LingoDeer” mainly for single languages like Chinese and Korean.

7) Learn to play an instrument

Besides just looking cool with you rock the guitar or drums, learning to play an instrument is an amazing talent.

So if you happen to have an instrument already at home, then feel free to practice a couple of chords or for a beginner, start learning immediately!

The instrument that you are so gratefully given to have, is a blessing, so you might as well learn to play to be a blessing to others.

8) Paint or Draw

If you are more on the artistic side, then drawing and painting will be your cure from boredom. But if your a beginner, never feel like you can’t draw. As long a practice enough, anything will be possible.

For example, looking at other artists’ drawings or some online tutorials will get you on the write track to draw or paint like a professional.

9) Bake/Cook something

Maybe you like cooking and baking food. So if you made a batch of cookies, you could probably sell them to make some pocket money for yourself.

10) Write a story

Dear future authors,

Please write that story you have in your head, on paper. You never know when your story could be the next “Harry Potter” Series. If you give yourself a chance, then by all means, start writing and create the story that was meant for the whole world to know.

However, if you write just for fun, then maybe submit a few stories to writing contests, so you as well could gain some money for future purposes.

11) Write a song

If you got a tune stuck in your head, maybe you could write down a few lyrics. You never know if you’re song writing to could get you to sing out on live stage, if that’s the dream you hold.

But song-writing are fun activities to get rid of boredom and will probably make you time worth while.

If you are more of the face to face, physically there kind of person, then put down your GamePigeon, call your friends over and plan a fun date night. You could even set up a picnic or go to the movies and buy some popcorn. Anything you want to do as long as everybody else is okay with it.
