Boredom is that feeling of dissatisfaction with the world around you and disinterest in your current activity. While you want to be engaged with the world, you don't want to do any of the activities in front of you.
Boredom is our brain telling us it's time to switch activity. That feeling of restlessness is motivating us to find new pursuits that will bring more satisfaction.
On the surface, boredom can appear to be a trivial problem. But it may lead to some more severe problems.
Boredom is associated with risk-taking behaviours such as drug and alcohol use as well as self-harm.
Rather than being frustrated with boredom or using it as an excuse, find out why you feel discontent.
