For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain–
With our attention spans growing smaller, we often find ourselves bored and impatient – A potent mix indeed. The more we feel “trapped” in any given situation—listening to a co-worker’s weekend triumph(s), waiting in line for a chai tea latte, the more impatient we become. If we can’t access the MindBody app thing on our gadget, our increasing anxiety, sprinkled with the slow passage of time, stinks – big time!
Question is: What can we do about it?
My go to cure for boredom and impatience? Is to make sure I have regular, new challenges and interesting things to do each and every day. Why? To make sure I maintain an emotional balance; I need a generous dose of “down time” time to rest my mind and my nerves.
Take a moment to recognize your boredom this week, the tedium of daily life that pisses you off. Then when you sense ennui settling in, make a mental shift … As soon as you take your next deep breath.
I used to get bored often as a kid, as i was so ill and after awhile hospital stays and home stays get to be too much. But as an older adult, I”m rarely bored as I can always find something to catch my interest or engage me in a conversation..external or internal 🙂
Exactly! There are so many “things” to keep us from being bored and annoyed with life. Some, are plainly simple and often over looked – Like a good conversation with a dear friend. 🙂
I have built few relationships through my blog, so I truly appreciate that you have taken the time to do that with me. I love our conversations and value you!
What is this thing, boredom? 😉
Aww this “thing” called boredom … Hmm … 🙂
