I thought of sharing a list of things to do when you need to distract yourself, things I usually do when things are hard, or when I basically need to refocus.

  • Listen to music and create your own playlists. Spotify is brilliant when it comes to that.
  • If you’re really into music and play an instrument, sit down and pick out a new song, write your own, or play something you just enjoy playing.
  • Do some arts and crafts – digital or with papers, scissors, crayons, or whatever. Create new stuff to keep to yourself ot give away.
  • Take photos, edit them, make a photo book or post them on a blog/social media, if you feel like it.

  • Go out, get some fresh air, and perhaps take a long walk (if you’re allowed to)
  • Solve soduko’s or crosswords
  • See or call a friend. And if you don’t feel like talking on the phone, text or write to the person
  • Paint your nails


  • Read a book or a magazine
  • Write  – it could be shorter notes on your phone, texts on a blog, or in a private journal
  • Check and other real estate websites – great interior design and home inspiration if you’re interested and into those kind of things
  • Color in coloring books – there are several out there now by really talented illustrators


  • Check out pretty things on Pinterest
  • Read inspiring blogs
  • Watch a movie/tv-series/documentaries on, for example, Netflix. There are so many different ones out there, and an awesome way to focus on a different subject than what you might be stuck with in your thoughts. Plus, you usually learn something as well.
  • Pet and snuggle with an animal
