BORED? 7 THINGS TO DO INSTEAD OF EAT.

Do you eat when you’re bored?  I eat when I’m bored! I also eat when I’m sad, lonely, angry or happy.  You name the emotion and/or situation and I could probably eat something!  Of-course none of this is a problem if you’re happy with your weight and constantly only eat healthy food.  For the rest of us it is challenging to stick to a healthy eating plan to meet our goals.

7 THINGS TO DO INSTEAD OF EAT

 

Here are my top 7 things to do when you’re bored, sad, happy or insert any emotion here instead of eat

  1. SORT OUT PHOTOS

OMG! This is going to take you hours!  You’re probably going to have to set an alarm to remind you to eat lunch!

When was the last time you even saw the state of your old photo albums and photos?  If it was the last time you used a 35mm camera, then you’ve got your work cut out for you.  Maybe you should even think of printing some of the gazillion digital images you have.

 

  1. READ SOMETHING GREAT

The great thing about this idea, is there is no pantry or fridge in your local library! You will get absorbed in a great book and not even notice! You could just sit at the local park with a magazine/kindle if books and libraries aren’t your thing.  If you walk there and back you’ve just exercised as well!

 

  1. CLEAN THE OVEN

Ok, ok, first hear me out on this one!  Cleaning the oven is no-ones favourite activity but it NEEDS to get done some time! There a plenty of products on the market that you can just spray in and not wait hours and hours before you can clean the oven. It’s physical and you can’t eat wearing rubber gloves!

 

  1. REVAMP YOUR ENTIRE WARDROBE OR SHOE COLLECTION!

    Now this is not supposed to make you feel like crap but if somethings doesn’t fit quite right this could motivate you to stick to that healthy eating plan.  Also it is a great thing to do every so often to organise your wardrobe, throw things out and plan outfits for the season ahead. (Even a great time to write a shopping list for new clothes)!

  1. SORT OUT YOUR TUPPERWARE CUPBOARD

This is one thing that is on my to do list very often.  You know what it’s like.  It’s the cupboard everyone just chucks in their Tupperware and other plastic containers without any real system to keep it neat and tidy!  Well you can make this a mini spring cleaning moment and haul everything out of that cupboard and sort it out!

 

  1. GET ONTO PINTEREST

If you haven’t joined PINTEREST yet, you really don’t know what you’re missing!  It’s a fabulous place to browse through gorgeous images and create ‘board’ to ‘pin’ them on.  Need a new pair of boots for winter but not sure what style? Get on pinterest and do a search! Just make sure you resurface before winter is over!  I can’t tell you how many hours I have been lost on pinterest.

 

  1. DO YOURSELF UP!

If you’re bored, this is the best time to decide to do your nails! You can’t go rummaging through the pantry or fridge when your nails are wet! This could also be the time to shave your legs, try that fake tan or practise doing your eyeshadow! All of these things don’t take a lot of time but we never seem to have ‘enough’ time to do them. Doing something like this will also make you feel a lot prettier and better about yourself!

    1. Ours too! We have to shut the cupboard door quickly before anything falls out!!

  2. Pinterest works everytime! I can get lost in that haha Great ideas, I dread cleaning the oven!!

    xx

  3. Love sorting my photos or cleaning out my closet to keep me from raiding the fridge! Thanks for the tips!

    1. Sorting photos is my favourite. There’s a real sense of accomplishment because it’s sorting out memories!

  4. My problem is I eat when I’m working, mid afternoon I’m all in the fridge searching for chocolate! I do usually choose to take a walk around the block at that point and take a break!

    1. As a m&m addict I know exactly what you mean! Good on you for getting yourself out for a walk!

  5. Love the tips! I actually went through my iPhone last night sorting out my photos, took up quite some time 🙂 Thanks for sharing

  6. Sorting my photos has been on my list for a long, long time! Cleaning the oven is never on my list 😉

  7. I like the cleaning the oven suggestion – mainly because I use one of those ‘spray-in-close-the-door-and-wait’ cleaners – while it’s breaking down all the oven muck, I can usually be found sitting on the kitchen bench browsing Pinterest, lol 😀
