Instead of counting the tiles akhee, let the Dhikr of Allah(swt), who created the atoms and molecules that your eye which sees the tiles, your mind which perceives, your tongue which utters, and the tiles themselves are made of, Let His(swt) remembrance and nearness be your constant companion.
How then can you be bored akhee? how can you be bored when Allah(swt), who says in his Noble Qur'an, that the whole universe can't contain Me, but the Heart of a Mumin contains me. When you can go within, and ponder over the creations of Allah, the furthers stars, galaxies, heavens, and the universes inside the tiniest particles. Just imagine the synergy it takes for you to utter just once, Al-HamduLillah. Now Imagine that you a fortunate believer, by simply being dutiful to your Creator, out of his mercy, because it is He(swt) who choose you amongst his Creatures that you be a Mumin, and not by our own might, being dutiful for a mere 100 years at most, You'll be rewarded with the eternal Garden. Imagine Eternity, living without feeling any sickness, tiredness, sleep, fatigue, BOREDOM, sadness, pain. Imagine an Eternity of Pure Pleasure after pleasure after pleasure, having everything you desire, everything you want simply with just a thought and you have it. Imagine having abilities of Flight, flying with the angels, imagine having a body that is so strong and so perfect that nothing will ever harm it, it will never feel pain, nor get old, nor break, nor be cut, you could stand in a sun and it wouldn't harm your with it is heat or it's other harms the slightest.
Now imagine eternity without Boredom, each day, each hour, each minute, each second gets better and better and better.
so whenever you feel like you have nothing to do, nothing fun to do, you could either count the tiles or count the blessings Allah(swt) has given you and make Dhikr. Trust me, I've those moments too, we all do as humans who live in this simulation that is Dunya, we are caged by it, so the only way we can escape it is by Fleeing back to Allah(swt) the Eternal, and His remembrance. Trust me i know no better cure for boredom, nor sadness, depression nor despair, than Dhikr of Allah(swt). It does Wonders!!!
