Cures for Boredom

Updated on September 17, 2011

There is no reason to be bored in this world. If you’re bored, it’s because you choose to be bored. Here are some ideas to get your journey away from boredom started.

1. Take up a new hobby.

Not sure what hobby to start or checkout? Take a look at You are sure to find a group that shares your interest, no matter how obscure!

2. Learn a new language.

There are a number of ways to learn a new language. I like the immersing quality and presentation of Rosetta Stone. It is expensive, but has images, scenarios, and assesses your speaking abilities. I find this method of learning much more effective than the audio-only CDs…

3. Volunteer.

Not sure what or where to volunteer? Check at Volunteer Match. You should be able to find something to fit your interests and schedule.

4. Write and publish your own book.

You can now easily do this via a number of on-line services, including LuLu:

5. Play an on-line game.

This won’t get you out of the house, but will help cure your boredom. I consider World of Warcraft the best on-line game. There is always something new to learn, somewhere new to explore, some new quest to complete, etc.

Take Action!

If you can’t find something to do off of this list to cure your boredom, it’s because you choose to be bored! You need to step outside your comfort zone and do something new! Start today.
