“I’m so bored!” We’ve all heard this complaint, even from our own mouths.
Boredom is uncomfortable. We try to avoid it. Sometimes we do unwise or unhealthy things to stop the dullness. Other times, we get stuck in it.
Boredom is a signal. It tells you and the people around you that something needs to change. Too often, what changes is that we open our devices and mindlessly distract ourselves.
Distraction never lasts though. Even after hours of videos, games or texts, what we’re often left with once the screen dims is another dose of “Boring.”
Instead of finding another diversion, what if you paused and paid attention to your boredom signal? It could be a sign of dissatisfaction or restlessness in your life that is worth exploring.
Boredom has layers. It can be a feeling and a state of mind. We feel bored when we think we have nothing to do or when we aren’t interested in the options we have. We can also feel drained and impatient. We may feel trapped.
Boredom can make us lose focus. When we aren’t doing something we think is worthwhile, our ability to pay attention slips. At its worst, prolonged boredom can even make us question whether life has any meaning.
Sometimes you can control your environment and overcome what’s boring you. But other times, your boredom is about more than the monotony of the moment. That’s when you need some strategies for managing the blahs and some ideas for digging deeper into what’s behind the boredom.
