If you’re bored, here’s one thing to do about it
Life has its ups and downs, and I’m not just talking about the emotional roller coaster we all go through. I’m talking about the ups and downs of enthusiasm, energy, and eagerness to do something.
One possible reason behind your boredom is the plateau your standing on and feeling quite satisfied with at the moment. And the monotonous feeling that long plateau you’ve been walking on has produced. The same job. The same career. The same routine. The same . . . everything?
No, don’t quit your job in search of something new, nor change your career to make like seem more drastic.
On the contrary, stick to your current job if it is crucial for your career. And, if your career is what you’ve dreamed of, keep working for it. But do something different with your job, or with your life outside of work. Something worthwhile. Something that will truly bring you great benefit.
Try to change your approach to something at work. Or try a different voice or style, if your job involves creativity. Or try to work on a more challenging project (if possible, of course.)
Take on a new hobby, or try a do-it-yourself project after work.
Are you a regular at one café or deli? Try a different one. Meet new faces. Discover new stories.
Whatever you decide to fiddle your mind with, do something different, something you haven’t done – or something completely outside of your routine – to ignite a fun spark to your life. And to throw that boredom out the nearest window.
