    Boredom is a state of mind. If I choose to be bored that is my fault. I choose not to be bored by seeking activities that I enjoy or finding ways to make tedious tasks enjoyable.
    You get out of life what you put into it.

      In truth, anhedonia sucks. If you have persistent feelings of being underjoyed you may want to re-evaluate what's going on.

    I have many things to occupy my mind and hands. Not enough time to  bother with bored.

    "Boredom flourishes when you feel safe. It's a symptom of security."

      Boredom is a state of mind. It happens when no exciting or thing of interest occurs, while a person is idle.

      Can one be bored at work? The work is so routine, their mind is idle, therefore, they become bored. This only happens when the person has no interest for what they do.

      Boredom is caused by a lack of interest.

      I don't think I can really answer this question as I cannot recall the last time I was really, truly bored.  There are five kids in my house (from 4 to 15), my husband & I run our own business where there is never an end to the work to be done, the house always could use some sprucing up (I can't stand absolute repetition so I change things around once or twice a year-or more), and there's usually some activity or event I want to go to or have the kids see.  Before the kids, I was young, irresponsible, and hell-bent on living! I'd ALWAYS find something to do. And if all I wanted to do was sit and read, well then I wasn't bored as that is what I chose to do. High school I was too involved to get bored so I guess sometime in middle school was the last time I was really bored.

      I guess what I am saying is that I agree with most everyone here-you are what makes life boring. wink  Sorry if that bursts your bubble!

        I am never bored, unless I am on a meeting and cannot escape. Then I look at people around and secretly in my mind invent all kind of personal secrets they might have, like personal stories, purely fictional and not bored anymore!

      Bored?

      How can anyone with an internet connection ever be bored?  There is so much to read and learn, I could spend lifetime after lifetime and never be bored!
