You know when you get a cold, or the flu, and you’ve been told to stay home by your Doctor? And you feel dreadful, but not so dreadful that you’re able to spend 18 hours sleeping. I hate that feeling of being stuck at home and being terribly bored when you’re sick. Here are four great boredom busters that will help you pass the time while you allow for your body to heal and restore itself to previous functioning.

  1. Online casino games

When you’re feeling sick, and home alone, some good games can really be a lifesaver. Especially if you have a pesky sore throat, the distraction can be ever so welcome. Royal Vegas Australian online casino is the perfect online casino to keep you occupied. With over 600 games on offer, you can try out all the cool casino games that your heart desires! Royal Vegas is also compatible with mobile devices, so you can easily play all the slots and blackjack you want from your bed on your phone or tablet! In addition, you also receive a wonderful $1200 new player welcome bonus when you create an account and make your first deposit. This means that you have more money to play with, and thus stand a chance to win even more money! Now wouldn’t that brighten your day when you’re feeling ill?

  1. Binge watch a whole season of something

This is probably the most obvious boredom buster, and everyone’s go-to activity when feeling sick. There’s nothing quite like bringing your duvet onto the couch and cuddling up with a cup of tea and a whole season of your favorite TV show and just letting the time go by. If you’re in need of a new show to binge watch, have a look at these great series you can watch on Netflix.

  1. Cook or bake something delicious

This one takes a bit of physical energy, so make sure that you feel well enough to venture into the kitchen. They say that chicken soup is medicinal; so it may be a good idea to have a go at making a pot of it yourself. Or why not try baking something comforting like chocolate chip cookies or some bread rolls –there’s nothing as good as freshly baked bread, hot from the oven.

  1. Make some new music playlists

Listening to some soft, acoustic music when you’re not feeling great can be really soothing for the mind. It could be a good idea to create a nice playlist of calming music that you can play whenever you get ill, or want some ambient music in the background. While you’re at it, update all your other playlists and make some more too if you feel well enough. It’s always good to have an up to do playlist for a road trip, exercising and for parties.

Hopefully these activities will keep you busy in your time of sickness. Do not try them all in one day though! Even if you struggle to sleep in the day time it is good to try sleeping a couple of hours in the day.
