    Don't be bored anymore.  It's really as simple as that.  You have the basically unlimited amount of information and and activities available to you on the internet.  You also have the entire enigmatic vastness and depth of human thought to use to your advantage.  There is no reason you should ever be bored.

    My suggestion - stay bored.  Challenge yourself to stay bores as long as you can. Chances are your creativity will wake up. Yes, any minute now.

    Go Play You Don't Know Jack on Facebook. Paint your toenails green and freak people out. Go to the 7-11 and see if they have cherry Slurpee's (I'll take a medium, please). Learn how to make Play-Doh. I don't know. You could just make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and go read a book. That's what I'd like to do right now.

    I wonder, how  do you get time to get bored. There is so much to do in life, so much to learn, so much to enjoy, so much to see. Sometimes, I think  twenty four hours are not enough. You need to change your attitude first. Take interest in yourself, in people and things around you. Life is beautiful and full of opportunities, enjoy it.

    Teach yourself to juggle? But it's addictive though, so you may end up regretting the lack of boredom in your life...

    I think boredom, provided it is not from some physical ailment, comes from  an inactive imagination, a lack of creative thinking or just plain laziness. Whenever I find myself being bored I also find it is because I have settled into and accepted the mundane. There are plenty of adventures to break the cycle. It's simply a matter of determining what interests you and pursuing it. It could be something simple like reading to something more involved like wildlife photography and a million things on either side or in between those two ideas. Life is short, there is precious little time to be wasted on boredom.

      I think boredom these days is the result of being constantly ENTERTAINED.  We are on the receiving end.  Entertain me! Or I am bored. Bored?  Only boring people ....

      We are definitely and entertainment culture. We want entertainment delivered to us with nothing more than a little monetary consideration given in return. When I was a kid, we learned to entertain ourselves.

    I went to a very unique high school that thought of boredom as a state of mind. I leaned that, whenever I'm bored, I need a challenge. Pick up something you want to do. Make it ten times harder. And do it.

    If you want to write a hub, write a beautiful, brilliant hub.

    If you want to do a pushup, learn safely how to do a one-armed pushup - best not to try until you can do 100 regular ones!

    Make it hard, make it fun!
