There are few things more mind-numbing, lonely and depressing than having to spend days on end stuck in bed, feeling sick.

Sure, catching up on your Netflix queue is fun at first. But when you find yourself refreshing your social media feeds every 5 minutes because the only other option is staring at the ceiling, it’s time for some entertainment.

Luckily for most people, that’s when you start to recover from the flu or whatever virus has been bugging you. But when you’re living with chronic illness, you might not feel well enough to pick up your usual routines and hobbies again. Instead, life may feel like you’re trapped in Groundhog Day – and not a happy one. It’s not like you don’t know how to entertain yourself – you just don’t have the energy, strength and ability to enjoy yourself like you normally would.

Finding fun things to do when you’re sick at home alone may seem like a luxury problem, but it can actually have a bigger impact on your wellbeing than you might realize. Research shows that simple entertainment distracts from painful symptoms and keeps your happiness ratio up. What’s more, engaging in fun or meaningful activities reduces stress and provides a sense of fulfillment.

That’s why I’ve listed 130 fun things to do when you’re bored and sick at home. No matter if you’re bed bound, hanging around the house or longing to have fun with your friends, there’s an entertaining idea for you.

Not every tip in The Bored and Sick Guide will be doable for every illness. So much of what you can do to beat the boredom depends on how well you feel, whether you can sit upright and how much stimulation you can handle. However, I’ve tried to come up with plenty of inspiration for varying energy levels and different interests. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Beat the Boredom in Bed – 36 ideas to get through bedridden days
  2. Hanging Around the House – low-energy fun things to do by yourself at home
  3. Having Fun with Friends – how to have a good time together despite your illness
  4. Ideas for Date Nights at Home – keeping love alive in sickness and in health
  5. Go on Mini Adventures – infuse some excitement in your day-to-day life

Even when you’re seriously ill or injured, life’s too short to be chronically bored. You may not be able to improve your health situation right now, but you can make yourself feel a little more comfortable, cheerful and fulfilled.

So keep yourself entertained and contribute to a happier, healthier you by downloading your free The Bored and Sick Guide today!
