Do you get bored at home? Does boredom affect your life? Do you sometimes feel that you don’t have any desire to speak or do anything? When someone asks you about life, do you usually say statements like life is boring, I’m so bared, I don’t know what to do?

All of these statements indicate that boredom affects you and your life in some way. You might get bored at home or work and in most cases, you might not know the reasons that cause your boredom. To deal with boredom, you first have to learn about the causes.

Causes of boredom

1. Not having a goal in life

Most people who suffer from boredom don’t have a specific goal that they want to accomplish or limit their goal to one aspect in life. There are people for example, who focus on their work and in the process, ignore other important categories in their lives like their health, social life, among others.

2. Daily routine

Daily routine is when you do the same tasks every single day without any change.

3. Feeling dissatisfied

Many times you might not be happy to do some required tasks that are required of you to do.

4. Your surroundings

You might be with people who suffer from boredom. As you know boredom is contagious.

I’m so bored

To learn how to deal and overcome boredom, follow the guide below:

1. Have a goal in life

Have you ever asked yourself what are your goals in life? How can you achieve your goals? When you have a goal in life, then you would focus your time on achieving your goal.

2. Manage your time

When you decide on a goal and you know what you want in your life, then you need to learn to manage your time effectively. Organizing your time will help you to work on achieving your goals and in the process you will be busy and boredom will not be part of your day.

3. Change your attitude

Sometimes in life, you might be compelled to do some tasks that you don’t like. In this situation, ask yourself what is the best thing that can happen if you do it and how it can benefit you. By focusing on the positive outcome of doing a task you don’t like, you are overcoming your boredom from doing something you don’t like.

4. Surround yourself with success

Surround yourself with people who are optimistic and successful in life. Just like boredom is contagious, success is contagious as well.

5. Break your daily routine

To overcome boredom, breaking your daily routine from time to time is beneficial. Eat at a different restaurant, wear something new, or visit a friend that you have not seen for a while.

6. Learn something new

During your spare time, learn something new to help you in your life such as learning a new language, communication skills, computers, read book, meditate, or anything else you might think of.

Always remember what Viggo Mortensen said, “There’s no excuse to be bored. Sad, yes. Angry, yes. Depressed, yes. Crazy, yes. But there’s no excuse for boredom, ever.”
