Attach a small whiteboard on a kitchen cabinet where you write down things you've run out of, so you will always remember what you need more of.

If you have a dog, teach him a new trick. It'll be fun to see what he can do and he'll like it too, when being rewarded.

Hang a small disco ball, turn out the lights, plug your iPhone into the speaker, and dance!

Write things to do on a piece of paper, then cut out little slips and put them in a jar. Next time you're bored, randomly pick a slip from the jar. Say goodbye to being bored.
