Being Bored

IMG_1110I often joke that it’s against my religion to be bored.  We sometimes get a bit of down time at work, and I hear people complain of being bored all the time.  I don’t understand that!  How can anyone be bored?  There’s so much to do!

I don’t mean that I’ve never been bored; I have, but for me it’s more of a mood thing than anything else.  Once in awhile I’ll feel out of sorts, and NOTHING will suit me.  As a general rule, though, I always have things to do.  In my work bag, I keep at least one book, but usually two, my personal iPad, and headphones.  I can read, write, surf the Internet, take a walk, listen to music, or have a conversation.  At home, there are more things to do than I know what do do with.

I don’t watch TV, in part because it’s not my medium of choice, but also because I’m just too busy doing other things.

How often do you get bored?

  1. I’m with you – it’s a mood, not a lack of things to do. It’s a lack of interest in all the things there are to do, and it’s very much akin to depression. Bored is not a good place to be.

    I am certain you are right about the mood thing. There is ALWAYS something to do!

    Thanks for your post! Made me check my mood 🙂

  3. I don’t really know what it means to be bored anymore. Sometimes I wish I would get bored, but there always seems to be way too much to do. Take a breath and relax, maybe we can try to bring on some boredom!
