Life is never boring, but some people choose to be bored
– Wayne Dyer –
According to the dictionary, bored is defined as feeling weary and impatient because one is unoccupied or lacks interest in one’s current activity. Having these feelings is ordinary. However, the question is, until when you’ll be living in this mind set? When you’ll wake up and see yourself in a different angle?
I am sure that most of us gone through this state of the mind. We felt that everything is scripted, everything is routinely. Others are even more expert of their moves and routes from the time they woke up in the morning till they sleep at night and wakes up in the morning and do the same. Yes, it’s true life like this, is really a boring life.
Defeating boredom can be difficult but living and dwelling in this structured life is more boring and boring. Why don’t you get out of your shell and do some strange schedules. Take advantage of dull moments to make life colorful, exciting, productive and meaningful.
Don’t you know that being bored may lead to anger and undeniably to aggravation? Bored people are prone to overeating, heavy drinking and even more to excessive smoking. Feeling bored on a regular basis can become a psychological issue as it can cause painful experiences, or negatively affect work or school or even your relationship.
To fight with, there are many ways to overcome boredom, making your dull moment into something entertaining and alive. The best and most practical way to overcome is to convince yourself to “Change” your lifestyle. Connect yourself into activities that you aren’t usually doing or not even tried to do it at all, anything that will completely change your life.
So, here are my best 10 recommended things to do that will definitely give you a new version of “YOU”.. It’s the best time to start a new year with a new “YOU” J
Wake up early
If you’re not a morning person (like meL), decide to get up early, 3 hours before you will start your activity of the day or work. Upon waking up, devote 30 minutes to read any devotional or inspirational books and reflect and meditate on it. Then, another 30 minutes to exercise. Face Mr Sun to remind you that it’s another brand new day to celebrate life’s blessings.

Anything that you are capable of doing extraordinarily is a talent, it’s a skill that you need to enhance and utilize. So, if someone told you that you prepared or cooked an amazing, delectable meal. This means, you have the talent and you must to enhance it.
Don’t keep the change in your mind, keep it in motion
Like me, I am not a writer not even writing or contributing at all. But I have so many thoughts lying on my mind. Like, I want to create a blog but because, I have less interest of doing what I am thinking or conceptualizing, I ended up nothing. Until I got bored and toxic thoughts coming in and out, so, I decided to make and create an Instagram account (because I am Instagram addicted), the #moodquotesbyJane to throw all my thoughts, turning every toxic thoughts into a positive and inspiring thoughts.
Until my couple friend (thanks habibi Banchi and Danush) invited me to share my thoughts in their website https://banchitv.net I find it interesting and exciting. So, I gave myself a try. I got myself registered and submitted my quotes until I wrote and contributed articles. All the thoughts lying onto my mind started growing and improving. I was soooo happy then because I felt a changed in my life. Indeed, exploring new things can be of life-changing.
