Play a game, or, even better, make one up! Use cards, dice, dominoes, Lite-Brit pegs, bingo balls...

Do puzzle books or newspaper columns like Sudoku, crosswords, or riddles.
Spy on someone. Yes, it may seem childish, but just peek around corners to see what people are doing. You may get busted, but at least you won't be bored anymore!
Go outside and look around. Even if it's the neighborhood you've lived in your whole life, try going in the woods, and look for old tree-houses or things you had not noticed before. It can be amazingly relaxing to just sit and watch the birds and think about everything, or not think at all.
Write a song. If you don't know how to play any instruments, learn!
Try to get a six pack - sit-ups, press-ups and leg raises can all be done in the comfort of your living room.
Exercise! It's good for you. Even if it's only a few jumping-jacks or push-ups. You may not particularly enjoy exercising, but find something you enjoy, such as dancing, yoga, or running.
See how flexible you are. Do somersaults, cartwheels, whatever you can to stretch your body (but don't hurt yourself, please). If you don't know how, learn! it is a good way!

Sing! Hold notes for as long as you can, or just sing a song you love. Even if you think you can't sing, who cares?
