Creating new habits to replace old ones
Boreout is when we are chronically bored by our work to the point of our work feeling utterly pointless.
Factors that can cause chronic boredom includes:
Experts say this phenomenon can result in the same health problems for workers as burnout.
Studies show that chronic boredom increased the likelihood of employees' turnover, early retirement intention, poor self-rated health and stress symptoms. Depression from boreout can lead to physical ailments from insomnia to headaches.
Workers who are chronically boreout are more reluctant to address it because it has been ongoing for so long. They may not want to take up the issue with managers as it reflects a lack of interest and motivation.
In the same way we're increasing discussions around burnout, work-life balance, and workplace inequalities, experts say we need to talk about boreout.
Talking only about stress and burnout in the workplace is insufficient to address the spectrum of human suffering at work. Discussing boreout could broaden our understanding of what makes a good work-life. Organisations can re-think their human resource philosophies and organise work in a more sustainable way.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
