BoredomLife is amazing, even if some of us don’t agree with it. We are always amazed at how things don’t turn out the way we want them to, it’s never boring. But, still we hear people say “I’m bored, what do I do?” Well here are some amazing things to do when you are bored.

According to Wikipedia: “Boredom is an emotional state experienced when an individual is left without anything in particular to do, and not interested in their surroundings. It is a condition characterized by perception of one’s environment as dull, tedious, and lacking in stimulation.”

Humour is a powerful antidote to boredom as it helps alleviate dullness. Technology has made it so easy now to have access to humour – get online and type ‘Humour’ on YouTube, and humour is at your service. Easy cure for boredom!

Read an engaging story
For people who love to read, when they get bored, the cure is as simple as picking up a book, magazine, kindle or log online to read something stimulating for their mind. Something that engages your mind to start ‘thinking’, ‘imagining’ or ‘visualizing’ is a hugely positive and productive boredom-buster technique.

Enjoy nature – Go for a walk
If you are bored because you have no one around to interact with, pick up yourself and get dressed to go for a walk and enjoy ‘Nature’ – it’s one of the most valuable resources available to us freely and unconditionally. It’s also becoming one of the most under-rated and under-utilized resource, with technology chaining us indoors and glued to our devices.

Nature has a hypnotic charm about it, which can be realized only when you focus all your senses to enjoy it – admire it, listen to it, smell it, touch it.

Help someone
Yes I know you would ask “How am I supposed to help someone when I’m bored, because I need help myself?”

Believe me, as soon as you bring this thought to your mind to help someone and actually start helping someone, your boredom will instantly disappear. You will be filled with happiness, positivity and motivation. It doesn’t need to be anything big, even an act as small as listening to someone who wants someone to listen to them is a huge help. It’s healing and transforming.

Listen to music
It’s no hidden secret that music can transform our emotions and state of mind in an instant. If music is your thing, choose a couple of tracks/tunes you have always loved to listen to and start enjoying them. When you’re bored, these would sound extra-special and resonate with you more than ever before.

Or if you desire an instant mind-shift, listen to subliminal sounds – these are easily available in mp3 or CD format. With the click of a button, this technology can help you conquer boredom and lack of motivation or stimulation.

So, go ahead – make your day with these simple steps – you don’t have to wait to be bored to try any of these techniques.
