Being bored is the ultimate insult to oneself.
IF you feel yourself slipping toward a state of boredom, try one (or more) of these:
- Call a friend or family member you've haven't talked to in awhile (or write 'em a note).
- Read a book/article/blog.
- Begin conceptualizing and/or sketching out a new project for yourself (sun room? garden? bath remodel? quilt?).
- Go for a walk/run/jog/bike ride outdoors, and pay attention to the world around you.
- LEARN something new.
Whatever you do, DON'T turn on the television. (It's the equivalent of turning your brain into mashed potatoes.)
You and the world around you are far too interesting to let boredom dribble into your consciousness.
