The world is so noisy, it feels like everyone is speaking. Only a few are listening, hence the widespread of it. It’s on a high rise so much that some have even crawled back into their shell. This is due to a failed self-expression welcomed by a saddening rejection. It’s funny to detect that while surviving on your own lane and avoiding the crowd, you’d get bored therefore unhappy. Over time, bored people have been advised to settle for good movies, great novels and hanging out with pals.
These could work out but it’s for a restricted period. If you’re still reading, I understand you are willing to end this boring daily living. I comprehend how quietness can become so real even in a house full of chatting people. I know how one can feel so indifferent even in a hot party.
How can you free yourself from this feeling?
For you, I have come up with practical tips to chase away boredom.
• Find out if this is your life. Get to know if you like your environment quiet and cool. If your answer is yes, stick to such environment, solitude can be such a bliss, you know. As difficult as it is to visualize this, believe me! A noisy place will ever be boring to a quiet soul and the reverse is also the case. If you just have to stay in a place that contradicts your personality, you need to adopt the virtue of tolerance.
• Take a stroll! Yes, take a walk more often, watch the roadside corn sellers, watch the movement of the leaves as controlled by the wind. Visit the zoo or play beside the ocean. Don’t forget to appreciate the work of creation. As you do this, take selfies, glancing through your gallery would restore sweet memories. This will not only exterminate the boredom, it’d help soothe your mind and body.
• Write! Write!! Write!!! This might look mundane but it helps you express yourself in a manner no one will decipher. Though you might not be a great writer, pen down your feelings, document your fantasies and read them out to yourself.
I trust that these points mentioned will set you in the right mood. Kindly drop your boredom-killer experiences and let’s chat.
