Being bored is so boring! And it can make you feel really negative. However, what will make us feel better will be different for each of us. You need to find something to do that works for the unique, special person that you are.

 

Use the tick boxes below to choose which type of person you are, and then some suggestions especially for you will pop up. If they are not completely right, change the tick boxes to find some other choices.

Pick one thing and make it happen. That's not boring!
