Can we agree that boredom has been a huge issue everywhere in the last year? So today I’m sharing an evergreen article from ezinearticles.com, by Linda H. Hudson. Her article is titled, “3 Way Cure for Boredom”. Other than the photos, which I selected, I am sharing her article in its entirety.
3 Way Cure For Boredom
By Linda M Hudson, Submitted On August 06, 2010
Here are 3 suggestions on how to cure boredom when you are stuck and seeking something to do:
Boredom Killer #1. Get out of the house. This is the oldest boredom antidote in the book right here.
I sometimes find that I get bored when I’m in the house. If your boredom started in the house, you must be tired of staring at the same stuff. So the instinctive thing to do is just get get out!
Get yourself to a friends house or to the mall, try the park. Take the dog out if you have one. You know damn well he’s been holding his crap in since you got home – he’ll love you forever if you walk him! Just do something so you can to take yourself away from the region of your house you got bored in.
Cure My Boredom Tip #2. Don’t come back for at-least one hour!
If somehow you can get away from your ‘place of boredom’ for that one hour, then I guarantee that area won’t be such a bore-zone when you get back! Stay away for at least that amount of time. This is just enough to make the place you got bored in, somewhat ‘fresh’ again.
Cure For Boredom #3. Make up something fun to do!
What do you like doing think? Thinking is a cure for boredom in itself but that’s a article for another time. Back to the subject if you play a sport, find a friend or acquaintance who’s up for a game. It doesn’t really have to be anything competitive but if competitiveness is what motivates you do it! A quick game of football hacky-sack, basketball, soccer,…these things can kick boredom in the face!
The social aspect of this is very important. Just being able to see a face you haven’t seen for a while oh let’s say 2 days or so should be enough to un-bore you, a good friend can be a great boredom killer.
There are alternative to killing boredom other than getting out of the house. I’ll list the top three.
* The Computer= Gaming+ The Internet: umm… you can’t really go wrong there. Unless you’re the ‘Internet God’ then I guess you’ve seen it all, but still you can find all types of interesting things to help you cure boredom.
* Console Gaming: You have the Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii pick your boredom killer either one them could satisfy you for hours maybe even days or weeks hell months even.
* Watch A Movie: I prefer the action and horror genre as my boredom cure of choice but whatever type of movie stimulates your mind should be a suitable boredom antidote.
The thing is you have to try and break away for your everyday routine once in a while it’s the only sure fire way to cure boredom do different than what you’ve been doing to get bored, you’ll find out how to concoct the perfect boredom antidote for yourself!
Perhaps you could beat your boredom by Finding a Hobby? That link is to an article about discovering new hobby ideas.
If all else fails check out my site Cure-My-Boredom.comit has all sorts of stuff to keep your brain from numbing. Shameless plug? I know but heck I made that site cause I was bored and typed this article for that same reason. The point I’m trying to make is when your bored just do something! It’s as simple as that.
Expect more articles in the near future.
So, how about you? Have you been experiencing boredom in the last year? Do any of these ideas sound good, or are you already using them and having success? What else are you doing to combat boredom? The more engaged with life and people you stay, the more you’ll be in the realm of Healthy, Happy, and Loving Lifesm! It’s up to you!
