Learn to crochet. Make afghans or teddy bears for needy children or something. A pile of yarn and a hook will keep you busy (interested, challenged, frustrated) for years. I've been at it for a good 25 years now and I'm still learning new stitches and techniques.

You could always go (back?) to uni and get (another?) degree or a postgrad qualification. For fun, you know.

That just sounds plain awful. Besides, I have no interest in acquiring more student loan debt.

Re: Combating Complacency

I'd say enjoy it whilst it last, though as others have said start a hobby. Yes I know you've mentioned you can't think of anything to do, but surely there must be something you've thought about doing over the years but never had the time.

And you could be over thinking of what to do, sometimes when you try to force something it doesn't happen.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
