Maybe you find yourself scrolling through Reddit’s homepage during your lunch break at work (or simply when your boss is out of the room), but you might be looking for something else to do on a slow weekday. Luckily, the internet is always there to save us when we’re bored. That being said, it’s still easy to find yourself without anything to do when you’re online. You have an endless array of websites to visit, but you feel like you have no options. Sound familiar? Well, here are some online entertainment options for a slow weekday so that you never have to give in to boredom.
Play mobile games.
You might not want to use your work computer to play video games during the day; even if it’s your lunch break, that might not present a professional image to your employer. But you could play mobile games instead, as long as you’re using your personal phone and not a company phone. With great games out there, such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, there are plenty of options to keep you busy. You should also check out PUBG (Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds) if you’re looking for a really fun mobile game. It’s won plenty of gaming awards already, and it’s easy to see why; there are few mobile games as graphically-smooth and interactive as PUBG. If you’re looking for a straightforward online FPS with matches that range from 8 minutes to 30 minutes (perfect for a lunch break) then this is your game. The slither.io mobile game is a great option for slow weekdays too.
Follow sports websites.
If you’re a sporting fanatic then this could be a great way to spend your lunch breaks. There’s no reason to wait until you get home to catch up the latest sporting news. Keep up with your team in real time online. The great thing is that it’s easy to check the results subtlely whilst you’re working (not that we’d condone procrastination). And you could even get yourself a little more invested in the games you’re following by using a website such as Free Bets to place bets on matches. It might bring a bit of excitement to your boring weekday if you’ve got some sort of stake in the sports you like to follow.
Play flash games.
If you are going to opt to play games on your computer at work, however, then you might want to choose games you can easily open up in a tab and then shut down when you have to get back to work (as long as you can avoid re-opening that tab to procrastinate). Remember flash games? Well, they still exist, and they’re still just as addictive as ever. You should check out gaming portals such as Pogo. You’ll find classic online board games on there such as Scrabble and Monopoly. That could be a great way to liven up a slow weekday. You could even get some of your colleagues involved if there are multiplayer options.
