The internet has become the nesting grounds of bored people, including myself sometimes. We always want to do or explore things but we just can’t figure it out somehow. So, we end up just browsing our phones and switching through five different apps. And still, the boredom remains.
Seeing the same things from using the same apps over and over again can make us lose interest. So what we sometimes need are platforms we have never heard of or have not tried exploring yet. There are a lot of interesting sites that we can check out f mainstream media feels boring or too much.
They always recommend that social media consumption is good. And while it is, sometimes you just can’t help it. So what can we do? Make it productive at least. Explore sites that may help you improve your mood or skills without doing much effort. Just scroll and use your senses and develop a great interest in arts or anything that may instill some intellect in you.
