23 Things To Do When You’re Sick, Stuck in Bed, or Bored Out of Your Mind.


1♥ Play games by yourself on your Tablet, Phone, or Computer!  (Two of my favorite games to play when I’m sick are ‘Township’ and ‘Plants VS Zombies’ –Not a sponsored post)


2♥ Play video games online with friends!


3♥ Call and talk to a friend!


4♥ Write a letter or Email to a friend!  (They’ll be both shocked and excited to get a letter or email from you!)


5♥ Watch a movie or TV show.  There is nothing like a good movie to put you in a good mood and pass the time!


6♥ Do some reading!  Whether it’s magazines, books, blog posts, or school books, reading is a great way to pass the time!

7♥ Take a nap!  Especially if you’re not feeling well.  Naps are not only a great way to pass the time until you’re better, but resting helps you get better quicker!  (Seriously, you need your rest..!)


8♥ Snuggle with a pet!  This will not only make you feel better, but your animal will love this as well! 😉


9♥ Write a short story!  Not a writer?  Doesn’t matter!  No one is going to see it but you!


10♥ Spend some time on Pinterest!


11♥ Do some crafts!  (As long as you’re not super contagious) You could make some amazing crafts for your friends, or make some cute decorations for your room!


12♥ Change into your favorite Pajamas!  Feeling down because you’re sick?  Changing into your favorite pair of pajamas will make you feel better by giving yourself a little pick me up!




13♥ Listen to music and do some coloring.  The music puts you in a great mood, and you get a pretty picture at the end!


14♥ Listen to an Audio Book!  (You might just find that you like a book you never really wanted to ‘read’.)


15♥ See what your favorite YouTubers are up to!  Or find new YouTubers to subscribe to!


16♥ Play mind-games online.  It’s a great way to keep your mind sharp while you’re sick!


17♥ Check in on how your friends are doing on Facebook.


18♥ Find Quizzes online and take them!



19♥ Make a list of all of the things you’re thankful for, or that make you happy!


20♥ Learn a Magic Trick on YouTube!  Impress your friends with a bit of magic after you’re feeling better!


21♥ Look out your window for a bit, you never know what you could see!


22♥ Look up inspirational quotes online to keep your spirits up!


23♥ Plan a trip you’re never going to go on!  Because, why not?  (And since you’re never gonna on the trip, plan it as if you’re a millionaire!)

  1. Hehe 🙂

    This is such a cute and helpful post. Love all your ideas and the pictures you’ve included. Reading your post has uplifted my soul. ❤ Taking naps really does help. I should do that more often. In a weird way, being sick is kinda good because it helps me to slow down, be more focused about anyone/everything around me, and it's a great time to read or binge watch a favorite TV series. Or find a new one. ❤

    • That is so true. ❤ As much as it sucks to be sick, it really does allow you to slow down and see things differently and allows you to get some unexpected 'you' time. As much as I hate it that I'm still sick right now, I'm happy to take some time to rest and to LET myself be sick. 🙂

      • ❤ Hi Deanna ❤ I hope you're feeling better. But I'm SO glad you got "you time" while not feeling so great. So, what things did you do off your list? Crafting? Writing? Reading? Gaming? 🙂

      • I actually did most of them while I was sick! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 21, and 22. 🙂 I was too afraid to do any crocheting, because I didn’t want my ‘sicky germs’ all over. 😛 And although I didn’t write any short stories while I was sick, I did write this blog post! 😉

      • ❤ 🙂 ❤ I always love to read what you have to say. Sorry for late response, but we're moved in and pretty much all set up. Still using my husband's Wi-fi to use internet until SPECTRUM comes out to hook us up.
