To find life boring is not to know yourself.


^-^ From a psychology journal:

6. Boredom comes from not knowing ourselves
----------------------------------------

The next time you find yourself lost in a fog of boredom during an endless,
rainy Sunday afternoon, consider this new research by John Eastwood and
colleagues, showing boredom has little to do with lack of external
stimulation and everything to do with being out of touch with our emotions.

Two hundred and four undergrads completed questionnaires about their
susceptibility to boredom, and about their emotions, including questions on
describing feelings and being externally focused.

The students who said they suffered from more boredom were also more
externally focused and reported difficulty identifying their emotions.
Eastwood and colleagues said this shows our natural tendency to seek outside
stimulations and distractions when we're bored is the wrong solution.

"Like the trap of quicksand, such thrashing only serves to strengthen the
grip of boredom by further alienating us from our desire and passion, which
provide compass points for satisfying engagement with life", they said.
Instead the researchers suggest treating boredom as an opportunity to
"discover the possibility and content of one's desires".

^-^

Stop. Take deep breathe. Look at the sky. Then you'll realize life is not as boring as you think.

If you find that you are bored, you can watch anime, hang with friends, go on a chatroom and talk to strangers, yell at something, watch a movie, burn something, play a game of some sort....
Without boredom, there is no life. Because if everything was fun, fun would get boreing.

It's natural for people to get bored every once in awhile, to not ever be bored would be strange. Filling one's schedule with vacuous activities to pass the time is not the correct way to battle boredom. Rather, I would think engaging in some sort of volunteer work would alleviate physical boredom, and provide social stimulus.

Boredom is natural for me. Living in the middle of nowhere...without a car...I don't have that many options. xD I honestly doubt this boredom has anything to do with my emotions, I'm pretty sure it's because there's just NOTHING to do.

You should go outside. Its fun to watch dramas and anime on the computer but you should still make an effort to go outside. (I am actually directing this advice to not only everyone reading it but me as well. I need some more exercise....)
