Breakout of Boredom

If you are feeling excited with your life then you are definitely living true to your image and following your dreams. But, if you feel stuck or bored then you probably are not in tune with your goals and values. When boredom seeps into your life, remember that your aspirations and values are off track.

Having said that, here are 5 easy ways to end boredom and get back to living your life to the fullest.

  1. Doing things for others is one incredible way to alleviate boredom. Pay five compliments you really mean to those in your life. Do this by means of words or written notes. Throw a party for someone or just simply congratulate them for something they have achieved. The more you concentrate on others, the less bored you will be with your life. A life lived giving is a life that can never be boring!
  2. Remember that your senses can be an amazing source of excitement for your brain. Give into your senses. Eat something delicious, smell something nice for a change or see something that excites you. It is always about pleasuring your senses. Best of all, you need not spend money to pleasure your senses. Taking a walk through the greenery, taking in the smell of rain, browsing through photographs of places you plan to visit, cooking a meal that you saw on television earlier are all excellent ways to keep you excited.
  3. Depend on your strengths more often. You known your strengths. This can be creativity, your family, some sports you indulge in or very simply your hobbies. Find out what makes you happy regardless of the time or situation in which you do it. That is what your primary strength is. Brainstorm on how you can further utilize your strength and you will find yourself less bored.
  4. When you are in, “the flow” – normal sense of self, space and time is overcome. This is a state like none other. It is one where any activity you engage in will be most rewarding. It is one that is filled with pleasurable attention and can come out of anything that you are truly passionate about. Dancing, Games, gardening, sports, writing, cooking – to each his own. You simply need to experiment and practice flow activities.
  5. Reveal something truthful about yourself. Remove tension in your life or address the elephant in the room. Sharing such unique experiences helps remove anxiety and in turn alleviate boredom.
