Plan Your Escape
You already feel trapped at home, so why not make it fun andto go to hell there. You will need to activate the Escape the Room skill in the Alexa application to get started. When you're ready to start playing, say, "Alex, open Escape the Room."
They give you five different scenarios to choose from – a prison cell, an office, a car, an airplane or a garage – and the goal is to escape. You will be given puzzles that you need to solve to get out of the room. The game will make you search in all directions, inspect clues and use objects around the house.
Alexa, I'm bored
Can't think of something? Just say the phrase you said to your parents all the time when you were younger: "Alex, I'm bored." And that's all you'll need to tell Alexa when you're ready for the bot to make those boring thoughts disappear. Just activate the skill I'm bored in the Alexa app on your phone to get started. This is Settings > Skills & Games > Searching for I'm bored > Touch Allow use .
After you tell Alexa you're bored, you'll get a funny fact. The intention is to find something so interesting for you that you will spend a little more time exploring the topic and forget that you are bored. After all, the more interests you have, the greater the likelihood that you will always have something to do.

If you just sit on the couch without any plans, you can also get a workout. It will make you feel better and can give you some motivation to do something fun. The Amazon Alexa app offers many different fitness skills, but the best we like are.
After activating the skill you like best, you can start your training. Just say something like "Alexa, start a 7 minute workout" or "Alexa, ask the Fitness Guru to give me a workout for my upper body." Imagine how toned your arms would look if you were doing a quick workout every time you said you were bored!
