So, funny story, I actually said this exact quote to someone last week when describing my life. This is very similar to the quote, “In a world as fascinating as ours, only boring people get bored.” I could not agree more. There is so much to do in this amazing, beautiful, inspiring world that we live in that if you are bored then you really need to think about changing your life. I would suggest starting with where you are or the circumstances surrounding you when you get bored. Does it usually happen when you are alone or with people? Is there a certain place where you always find yourself bored? Well, if so then I think it’s time for a change!
I know that it’s cold out and if you aren’t an outdoorsy person then maybe winter activities aren’t for you but good news- there are museums and crafts and all sorts of other things that you can do! There’s just so much that I can say on this because the options are literally endless as to what you can do – even if you don’t have much disposable income. My A-list crew and I have board game nights, there are great books out there to read and just taking a trip through Michael’s refreshes my memory on how many different crafting opportunities there are.
I mean, honestly, if you are getting bored frequently, take a good, hard look at your life. We haven’t even begun to talk about travel and all the different types of food that are out there! And I don’t believe you for a second when you tell me that you have no talent, no money or no time. You’ve gotta at least have one of those; work with me here!
Here’s a good starting point for activities you can do to prevent boredom:
- Ice skating
- Create a scavenger hunt for your friends.
- Board Games with friends
- Read a book.
- Go antiquing.
- Start a blog.
- Go for a run or a walk or hiking.
- Prepare dinner and invite your friends over.
- Sell some of your old stuff on ebay.
- Go to a museum.
- Redecorate your living space!
This is just a short list, if you gave me more time I could come up with a much longer list, but the idea is the same, there is so much out there you can do!
Within the past week, besides being sick, I had a game night with my girlfriends, I made a pillow, and I worked out, just to name a few things outside of work that I do to fill my time. After all, I’m not a boring person!
