When you are waiting for a trial or are strictly on house arrest to avoid jail time, it can be very boring to try to keep yourself entertained. Once boredom hits, it can become harder and harder to keep yourself out of trouble. Depending on how long you are on house arrest and what your guidelines are, there are a number of things that you can do to stay productive and not fall into a trap of trouble and not knowing what to do.
What To Do
Staying productive and busy is the best thing that you can do. One important thing to remember is that this is just temporary and you have to look beyond this time and begin planning for the future. What would you like to do when you are done with this time in your life? Consider something like taking an online class at your local community college. You can also work on your GED or High School Diploma if those are something you have no obtained. Taking classes to learn a trait are also great options. At some point, the tv will get boring, but consider flipping to the cooking channel and learn to make a new dish. Read a book or a list of books that you may be interested in.
