100 Fun Things to Do When You're Bored or Depressed

By Alice Boyes, PhD. | Uncategorized

As problems gets bigger, often the rest of life seems to shrink.

When people have a lot of stress – their time, energy, and thoughts often get consumed by those problems. As people spend more time and energy thinking about their problems, they spend less time and energy pursuing their interests.

What are your unique interests? The things that give you pleasure?

To have positive mood, it’s important to do activities that give you a sense of pleasure (as well as activities that give you a sense of accomplishment).

It’s common for people to struggle to think of fun things to do when they’re bored and depressed. So, I’ve made a big list. The goal is to stimulate your own thinking about pleasure activities you’d like to do more of.

You can purchase the list for $4.99 USD. On the paypal page, click the options that says pay with credit card, if you’d prefer to pay with credit card rather than paypal.

Once you’ve purchased, you’ll be taken to a page where you’ll be asked to input your email. You will then receive the list via email. You can always contact me admin (at) aliceboyes (dot) com, if you have any purchasing issues.
