In this day and age there is ALWAYS more work that can be done in your job. Working harder can get you in line for a promotion, a bonus or a raise. Pour that extra time and energy you have into work projects, and ask for more if you find you have free time. That can distract you and keep you busy quite easily, and get you good recognition for your efforts.
If you're not working yet, look into getting a job! Whether it's raking leaves, babysitting, taking dogs for walks or being a handyman, there are always jobs to be done, no matter what your age.
