How to Enjoy Life? End Boredom

How to Enjoy Life

What is the difference between a filthy rich person who has every desirable thing imaginable and a monk? One has exhausted every interest they've ever wanted while the other doesn't care for any of it.

Enjoying life is not about getting as much money as one can get and buying everything one can get their hands on. It's about being eternally captivated and interested in new things. An adult is never as happy as he/she was when he/she was a child. That's because to a child, everything is new and wonderful. Everything from ants, mud, soccer, paper, the sky, or even a table.

In order to enjoy life, one must keep that interest alive.

This can be done by:

1. Asking questions - Why? What is a table solid? What is the universe? What if Santa existed?

(It's good to ask questions, but it is dangerous to confuse fiction with reality)

2. Seeing things from different perspectives - From a child, a teen, a parrot, a whale, your pet, etc

3. Learning new things and applying them to old things - If you learnt that water molecules are actually due to two hydrogen molecules in a covalent bond with an oxygen bond in which the oxygen has higher electronegativity than the hydrogen atoms, imaging the water as being a sea of electricity. You can imagine the hydrogen bonds between molecules as net of little mickey-mouse shaped balls floating in a sea of other shapes.

4. When one as aspect of daily life becomes boring, tedious, and you find yourself having trouble getting out of bed, take a few weeks break from it by going on vacation in a different place or doing something you've never done before

Thank you for that. It made me smile. I shall see things from the perspective of a parrot for the rest of the day!
