5 Things You Might Want to Do Before You Become Bored with Someone or Something

Have you got a bit of time?  Good.  Just a friendly reminder to head off those future bored feelings sooner rather than later.  Consider the following five tips.

1.  Take a break from the activity.  From talking with someone to tending to a task, don't keep doing something until you tire of it.  Break frequently if you know you tend to get bored easily.

2.  Change up routines.  Starting to feel like you don't want to do anything more than what you already do weekend after weekend?  Well it might seem okay right now and so you go on with the typical, but in time you will bore.  Break up some of the same ole, same ole with new activities.

3.  Don't assume others might become bored of someone or something.  Take control of your own emotions when it comes to what might be potentially boring to you, but may not be for others.  You should never suggest they do something different when they haven't given you any indication that they want to.

4.  Plan your day so that you can get a variety of things done rather than just one.  This way you won't become bored with something important and then just abandon it altogether.

5.  If you know that you or others will be traveling somewhere and might get bored, plan in advance different things to do while on your trip.

Boredom is a state of mind.  Like with most things, when the mind is telling you it no longer wants to do something by shutting down, forgetting often, or not listening anymore to others, obey it and do something unique.

Boredom Can Produce Wealthy Ideas

One day I didn't have anything better to do than to click on links around the web, check out some websites, you know the typical stuff.  Then I came across some ways to make money and started clicking away.  I didn't want to participate in home parties, MLM, or other similar things to make extra money.  So I came across some individuals who had various ideas on investing money, so I listened.  Some invested in websites, others spent money on mutual funds, people bought collectibles, and more.  I knew I could afford less than $20 to start buying mutual funds.  I also had some money saved to buy a few collectibles too--something that I didn't even bother to think of at the time.  That was over a decade ago when I used a boring experience wisely.

Since then I have found all sorts of ways to make money around the web and I talk to people online as well as offline about some things.  The sites I list are legitimate.  They are easy and quick to join.  I have had no problems with any of these sites.  My personal experiences have been positive, otherwise I wouldn't recommend them.  So if you are a bit bored, want to try something different, and make money, then why not?

I create books.  To keep costs down, I do much of the work myself.  Here is a starting place if you have a DVD, CD, book or ebook idea Createspace  As you can see the products are quality, Nicholl McGuire Media. Createspace expands your distribution if you give permission.

When I am done using items or they are no longer beneficial to my family, I post on Ebay and Craigslist.

I partnered with Amazon to sell personal items as well as become an affiliate marketer.  This is one of a few sites I put together, The Great Gift World.

Not Working, Irritable, Tired of Routines...You're Bored

It happens.  You just don't feel like talking to the same people, doing the same things and even worse, you have no job.  But don't stress, everyone gets bored sometimes with life, so here is what you could do to help you feel content again.

1.  Get outdoors.  If it is nothing more than a simple walk around the neighborhood.  Sometimes when you remove yourself out of your home you feel refreshed.
2.  Listen to some good music.  It might have been awhile since you hear some cool tunes to uplift your spirits.
3.  Find a place within your home and redecorate or rearrange the furniture.  This move can help inspire you to do some different things.
4.  Don't be afraid to change the way you do things during the day.  Write a list of all the things you typically do, notice what time you do them, and see if you make changes or add something you have been wanting to do but didn't think you had the time--make the time!
5.  Purchase a new book based on your interests.  When I came up with What Else Can I Do on the Internet by Nicholl McGuire?  I had people in mind who were simply bored with their Internet routines.
6.  Check out a movie away from home with a friend.  Sometimes staying at home watching movies can be a bore.
7.  Notice how you feel.  Is there a pattern in your behaviors?  Has a relative or friend observed a change in you that is unflattering?  Consider making an appointment with a doctor, treating yourself to a new hairstyle, exercising, eating healthy, and doing other things that make you feel better not only o the outside, but inside too.

Sometimes we don't think about some obvious things we can do when we are bored because we simply don't bother to think beyond our situations.  So stay positive and work to make your life more fulfilling again.
