daily inspiration: how to get over boredom
Posted March 2, 2011on:
Bored to tears? Fed up? Or just plain uninterested? Whatever your preferred adjective, it arises. There are usually two possible reasons:
1) You’re not fully investing yourself in what’s in front of you.
Maybe you’re taking it for granted. In that case, write a gratitude list for all the reasons you should be thankful that it’s in your life.
Or, you have some resistance to it. If so, honor it. Look at the reasons, and see what you need.
2) You need a change.
Tired of things? How about spicing things up? This could range from a new vocation to simply going for a walk. Look at how serious the situation is, and do what you need to accordingly.
Action: The next time you’re bored, sit with it. Give it space. See what you need, and act on it.
