What to do when there is nothing to do...boredom!
This blog is slighly random...hence the name of my blog sight. I was on facebook asking for topic ideas, or things to research and no one took me seriously until I posted the question again today. I was asked this particular question that is I feel is probaly one of the biggest issues in the world. We all go through it and its called "boredom."
In the longman dictionary boredom is defined as "The feeling you have when you are bored." Now that seems pretty damn lame and boring to me, no pun intended. I happen to like what C. D. Fisher states in terms of its central psychological processes: “an unpleasant, transient affective state in which the individual feels a pervasive lack of interest in and difficulty concentrating on the current activity." She gave the word "boredom" more of a introduction, thus making it seem more enticing.
What to do when you feel there is nothing to do? I would love to know! I am a creative person and most of the time I lack inspiration when boredom hits and try to find ways to inspire myself. Reading is a great past time and tends to get my mind spinning back into the groove of things and inspires me to write, which is another way to cure boredom. Writing doesn't have to have any sort of direction, just making ones self feel good is the only direction writing should have for starters. Writing in a journal is a great way to cool off a day that has so many highs and lows and just channelling those thoughts and aggressions into a journal is so uplifting and definantly takes some weight off of the chest. Blogging is another way to to write and doesn't need a particular topic but when chosin you can research,write and even learn things just by your investigating and the way you present your blog. Writing can be special, fun, fictional or no-fiction,fantasy,lust,personal,poetic and spiritual. This blog, this post really had no direction but to cure my own boredom and melotic day and I think I answered my own question and just by writing this I found myself instantly inspired and feel a bit more creative then my petty bored self had me feeling an hour ago. As I stated my writing had no direction but to make ones self feel good and that you don't always have to write about something in particular but sometimes it all just folds together ironiclly. Yours truley, Pandora Let me know what you do when you are bored or share a topic you would like me to write about or research, I am always up for a new direction and inspired by those around me. If you found yourself reading this due to boredom then you fell into the right blog. ;0)
