Cures for Boredom
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 Meetup.com. You are sure to find a group that shares your interest, no matter how obscure!
- Do something, Learn something, Share something, Change something - Meetup.com
Helps groups of people with shared interests plan meetings and form offline clubs in local communities around the world
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…
- Language Learning with Rosetta Stone
Rosetta Stone is the world's #1 language-learning software. Our comprehensive foreign language program provides language learning for individuals and language learning for organizations.
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:
- Self Publishing - Lulu.com
Lulu.com lets you publish and sell print-on-demand books and e-books, online music and images, custom calendars and books. Free self-publishing.
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.
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.
