Why do people get bored? How many times have we heard this? What are you doing now? Oh!!! Am soooooo booreddd!!! ;-) So many times isn’t it? Well I decided to think why I or so many of us are getting bored? Some of the most common reasons are because we end up doing the same thing everyday and crave to do something new, or we end up having a lot of free time and don’t know what to do about it. Why do we keep saying we are bored, why don’t we try to do something to keep us occupied? How can we escape this boredom? Why don’t we start doing something creative , let the mind think of crazy ideas , go wild in your thoughts , come on you need not do whatever you think , but we can think about so many things , which cant be done in reality and if possible achieve some of our dreams isn’t it? Most of the times when we are bored , we feel like the clock isn’t moving , we are stuck at one place and so want the clock to move faster than ever!
But when I decided to write about boredom, I went through a few websites to understand it better and write something meaningful and what I read was “Far from being a minor annoyance, boredom can have major negative impacts on people. Perhaps more importantly, boredom is often a symptom of deeper problems, such as depression, ineffective teaching, or ineffective management in a workplace.” So I guess I need to think a lot now about why am getting bored: D ,on a serious note , we all should start trying to concentrate on something rather than being bored . As they say “An idle mind is a devils workshop” so don’t keep your mind idle whenever you are bored the next time , try to do something which you always wanted to do , try going out for a pleasant walk ,try out a new recipe u always wanted to do ,call up your school mate you always wanted to , but didn’t have time to call them , take up your favorite book and lie down in your bed ,do something useful ,because boredom eventually leads us to depression and we all don’t want that . One of the best ways to get rid of boredom is Meditation. Meditation helps to calm the mind, and it works for everyone. I remember a time in my school days, when we had compulsory meditation before our lunch hour and I used to hate it so much, all of us used to be so hungry and were waiting for the bell to ring to run and eat: D .Now when I think of it I think I could have used the time to concentrate and get some relief , well anyway I was too young to understand it , so now I think I should start to do my meditation seriously and get along with my life ,and as I write I get deviated from my topic :D , so boredom should be handled in such a way , we should like what we do , we cant do something else and end up getting bored , just because your friend joined the music class , don’t run to enroll your name there , think if you like it and then join it , else you will end up getting even more bored .so don’t allow boredom to push you deep inside a tunnel , where u get depressed and start thinking of sad things in your life , life out there has so much to give us , we have loads and loads of things to enjoy in this world , so get rid of your boredom enter the cheerful life and have fun , I am trying to get rid of my boredom by writing, or reading my favorite books my first attempt and hope I get some more things to do , so will you ….b-)
So try to get your mind thinking the next time you get bored, just don’t star at your ceiling and think Man am bored I got nothing to do, and as am one of the persons who is bored the most, I would like you people who read this to give me and all the other readers some of your innovative ideas as to how to get rid of boredom .and am sure once we get rid of this boredom in our life , we or at least I can achieve something too with my boring life………:P
