Bored with Life—What to Do


Get yourself out of your furrow

Don’t be bored with life. Do something ordinary. If you feel bummed, do some little things that will shift your mindset for the better. This can be done within one’s means. For example, go out for shopping at stores you've never been before or buy things you have never bought before. Opt to do what you like doing most. Take a project that inspires you. Apply skills and talents in doing this lovely activity to come up with something new.


Schedule for an interesting event in advance with your friends

The event along with the excitement that comes with waiting for the big day drives away all dullness. This can probably be over the weekend after a busy week. Waiting to get friends to hang out over the weekend will shock you since everyone will have planned ahead of the weekend. It makes one feel sorry for staying alone at home which may escalate the boredom. Learn to always line up social events to avoid any embarrassing scenarios.


Get yourself someone to love and adore

It’s too bad if you do not have anyone to love at this age. The feeling that you are loved and cared beats the state of being bored with life. Take your partner out for a drink, walk or dinner when you feel low. Ensure you engage in thrilling activities that lead to excitements, romance, passion and spontaneity in your love lives. Let your partner know that you want to be with him/her and would know anything to make him/her happy. Appreciate and congratulate him/her on every good turn. Spice up his/her life by being everything he/she ever wanted.


Get up an hour earlier than before

Go against your normal arrangements to adopt an hour earlier principle. Get up an hour earlier and do something natural. For example, walk from the office to your house or market place to get some fresh groceries, cycle or engage in running activities. This is vital as it keeps your mind active, keeps you in shape and keeps boredom away. Adoption of simple exercises done indoor or outdoor can spice your life thus beating boredom.


Plan always

Scheduling the activities of the day keeps you engaged. The list of activities to be completed in a day should be realistic and attainable. At the end of the day, sit down and evaluate what you were able to accomplish. The thought that you were able to work on your planned activities feels good. Moreover, after carefully planning on what you are to do in particular day shows what time will be free. Free time can be used to engage in leisure activities thus boosting morale.


Be adventurous

You can try to be adventurous to avoid being bored with life. This can be done by fully engaging in activities differently. For example, if your week is quite interesting due to activities nagged in but the weekdays are boring, fit in a program that makes the weekdays interesting. This can incorporate walking or driving to work using different routes. It will spark a different feeling by creating a different experience. A new approach to the same activity flourishes one’s life and ensures that you are not bored with life.


Disconnect yourself from the media

The media can lead to boredom as one is unable to articulate what they can see in their real life situations thus necessitating the need to keep off media. On the contrary, engage in more physical activities. The physical activities vary from visiting friends for chats, going out with friends to engaging in games. One can participate in a nature walk and take an advantage of the walk by taking photographs of different natural scenes. This can be fulfilling thus driving away any chances of boredom chipping in. The media can worsen boredom by creating isolation and a feeling of being distanced.


Try out things differently

Doing something the same way over and over again makes one’s life dull. Stand up to take a risk and make alterations to an activity best known to you. Do things that you have never done before. Play games not attempted previously. In the activities you are used to doing, calculatedly error. These errors will give different results. Be unprompted and unpredictable. Modifications on an old tactic can lead to new experience that can spark life anew. It also creates a new experience which gives a zest in life.


Socialize with people

Break the ice by initiating conservation with people, both strangers and those close to you. Do not decide that some people look unhappy and unreachable. Smile at them and build a rapport from there. Converse carefully with them and listen to what they say to you. Create time and go out with people you love. Do things you love with other people. For example, you can host parties or go for mountain climbing events with a team of others.


Acquire new knowledge and skills

Time devoted in learning a novice tactic or skill can be rewarding. The time spends in the activity could have been wasted in loneliness, regrettably causing boredom. Acquiring new knowledge and skills positively impacts one’s personality thus boosting their ego and doing away with any loopholes that could cause boredom. It is worth noting that tackling an old skill the right way will lead to a proper understanding, thus leading to a fulfilled life that takes boredom away.

    This article is insanely bad. Please if you are bored, don't pay any attention to it. Buying stuff isn't the answer to boredom. I stopped reading after the find a partner comment... Went to amazon instead to order mine! You know cause that's how it is. Such a silly article, I think the owner of the site should remove it and be a bit more sensitive in future. If you are bored, its tough, life is difficult and sometimes the answer is not as easy as a google search. I would say, try to be courageous. Listen to yourself. Practice listening to yourself (no one does it enough!) only you know your path. Be brave and DO NOT pay any attention to the crap in this article. You don't need a partner, you don't need more stuff, you don't need to force yourself to do anything. You just need to get back into your beat :) Wish you all the best fellow bored human xxxx

    Thanks you very much it make me feel better and gives me an idea it was good , this articles not for people without money ..................

    What do you mean go shopping and buy things that you wouldn't normally buy? I think most people would LOVE to be able to do that but don't have the money! Part of the reason why people are depressed in todays society is because they don't earn enough money. Not earning enough money can make you feel as though you don't count, are not successful enough and what could a person who has no money possibly offer to a potential mate? Everything is based on how much money you earn these days. It really boggles my mind how people live in this world of money without any and are supposed to stay happy and joyful with a spring in their step and just itching to get out of bed to go to their minimum wage job for 8 to 12 hours of the day JUST so they can pay their wealthy landlord who is in the Caribbean on holiday, buy food and pay utility bills and have nothing left over until next month when they can repeat the entire process! Or, even if you do earn a decent amount of money in a small business, the tax man takes a good chunk of it so you are again working for nothing. What a great system we live in, it's just so fair isn't it? You would need at least $500,000 to 1 million dollars to get ahead in this life. Ridiculous!

    Well. If you're a music person. You could listen to Ayreon. A majority of the music is meaningful and not to do with love.

    Now I'm even more bored, I mean really this is the best we can look forward to?

    the person that wrote this doesn't know much about anything. i feel like i 14 yr wrote this for a school assignment. I agree with A89. You can't go to a shop and just buy things. a big reason people are bored and depressed is lack of money to do stuff in general. finding a partner isn't something you can order on amazon.
  • A89Jul.18 11:52
    This article is insensitive. The past where it says "get yourself someone you love and adore". What sense does that make? You write it as though there is a shop that you go and buy a partner. You make it sound easy when this is the most difficult thing in life and the thing you have the least control over, especially if you're a woman. And then you go on to say that it is too bad if you don't have a partner because it's oh so great. Very insensitively written. This would make someone feel worse especially if that's the reason they're depressed. Maybe they've waited their whole life to meet someone or be asked out on a date and no one has been seriously interested and you go and tell them to find someone like it is buying an item of clothing and that it's too bad if you're not blessed in that way. Everyone knows giving and receiving love is the best feeling in the world, 99% of songs are about love, you didn't need to rub salt in the wound.

    @ : How is this harder for a woman? Guys will do anything for a girl.
  • JoanOct.10 20:57
    @ : its harder for a woman. i dont feel like getting into why. figure it out on your own. i dont lie EVER.
  • sharonAug.3 19:47
    @ : I agree with you big time...I saw that and felt even worse because I'm bored because I'm single with no kids, broke, and I go to work, and come home to an empty house every single day...and can't go shopping because my monthly income is only $200 more than my expenses....and that $200 left is all I get for additional gas, any emergencies, or any outings, oh, and life sucks =/

    @ : The bit about "get yourself someone you love and adore" sounds cheesy as well as unrealistic - you can't "get" a person. Even the expression "get a job" is stupid because, as A89 says, it makes it sound like you can buy one in a shop. I prefer the term "look for", as it reminds you that, like an employer, a prospective special person may say "no".
