1. Tip #1: Bring your own entertainment system.
Waiting rooms are an amazing place to kick back and watch a flick. Come movie ready, especially with a Ryan Gosling movie.
2. Tip #2: Get comfy.
There is absolutely no reason that you should sit upright and uncomfortable in those stiff waiting room chairs, especially when you’re sick or aching. Grab another chair to rest your feet on, take off your shoes, turn on your electronics, and ignore the haters.
3. Tip #3: Make it homey.
How boring can a waiting room be when there’s a Furby in it?
4. Tip #4: Exercise.
Since you’re waiting you might as well burn some calories and what better way to do that than twerking? Twerk in the waiting room and make the wait brilliant not only for yourself but everyone else as well.
5. Tip #5: Wait in style.
Something about waiting on sassy animal print chairs says, “I’ve arrived.” Bring your own sparkly, cheetah print or plush accessories to make your wait SIZZLE.
6. Tip #6: Party!
Pump those tunes (within reason, of course) and have a dance party! Get up out yo’ chair and get those vibes going.
7. Tip #7: Make art.
Using the boring AARP magazines you’re too young to read, make an impressive sculpture. This particular piece is quite thought-provoking—as if it’s challenging you to physically transform your boredom into a magazine carousal of excitement.
8. Tip #8: Indulge.
This is absolutely the time to treat yourself. Most likely you’re waiting for something less than enjoyable, so in the meantime indulge—you deserve it.
10. Tip #9: Make friends.
And then play charades with them! Your soulmate could be in that waiting room. Don’t ignore the universe—engage!!
11. Tip #10: Learn.
Don’t let gingerbread men stop you from achieving knowledge! You’re already waiting, why not read a book or a magazine you wouldn’t usually look at??
12. Tip #11: Express your emotions.
Everyone has a story to tell about their waiting experiences. Tell yours with your face and social media.
17. Tip #12: Keep a sense of humor.
This is an actual* dinosaur in a waiting room. Don’t let the brillance of this be lost on you in boring times.
*No, it’s fake.
