I am Really Bored, a guide to Dealing with Boredom

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

Bored to Death?

I know you may not even be interested in reading this article because you feel really bored but know that spending few minutes reading it can help you understand this feeling of boredom and can enable you to prevent it in the future.

If you are bored to the extent that you can’t read it now then just bookmark it and read it later.

Boredom is like all other emotions, it’s a signal sent to you by your subconscious mind in order to motivate you to take a certain action. People usually misinterpret the signal and they think that they should do something new in order to feel good but few days later they discover that they feel bored once again.

What is Boredom?

I still remember how bored I used to feel Years ago at the accounting class. I thought that accounting was the most boring subject ever. Few years later, when I lost a considerable amount of money in the stock market I found myself extremely excited whenever i read about accounting!

It’s the same topic, the same person but the feelings were totally different. Every thing was the same except that boredom vanished!!

So is accounting really boring or is it interesting? Actually its neither boring nor interesting but when I used to study it at the class my subconscious mind found that its not important for me and so it made me feel bored in order to motivate me to leave the class!!

When I got involved in the stock market my subconscious mind discovered that accounting is important to me now because it can help me make some money and that’s why it prevented me from feeling bored again while studying it.

The Anatomy Of boredom

Boredom is nothing but a message send by your subconscious mind telling you that this thing you are doing now may not be important to you while the state of being interested is nothing more than a message telling you that this thing you are doing might be of importance to you one day.

How to Stop feeling Bored?

If you want to stop feeling bored then you should do anything but online games or watching the television. These things will just help you escape your feelings of boredom for few moments or few hours and later the feelings of boredom will invade your mind again.

It’s your life style that should be changed and not anything else.
Do you know why do you feel bored often? Because you rarely find something interesting.
And do you know why you lack interest?

Because you have no major goals to go after!! The more goals you have the more tools you will need to accomplish them and the more you will find these tools around you and so you will hardly feel bored.

Boredom comes from within and not from your surroundings and that's why the only effective way to deal with boredom is to change yourself.

Changing your surroundings is only a temporary fix but sooner or later boredom will return back again and i am sure you have experienced this before.Doing something new or playing an online game is not the solution for boredom but only responding to the signal can help you get rid of your boredom.

2knowmyself is not a simple article website nor it’s a place where you will find shallow fixes, but it’s a place where you will find effective techniques that are backed by psychology and that are presented in an obvious and understandable format. If you think that this is some kind of marketing hype then see why is 2knowmyself Different
