We say that we are bored when we have nothing to distract us or arouse our interest, which leads us to a state of mind that we dislike. There are people who say they get bored often, and who perhaps should think deeply about the following phrase: “Boredom is optional since there are thousands of things to do in the world.”
And indeed it is. Leaving aside the labor issue, and raising this topic only from the point of view of leisure, there are so many activities that we should not leave room for boredom.
According to studies carried out, it seems that extroverts tend to get bored more than introverts. Although it may seem strange at first glance, it is logical if we consider that introverts tend to be more creative people. And, with creativity, one hardly gets bored.
The spaces of time in which we have no obligation or tasks to perform we can take advantage of to acquire more knowledge, whether reading or studying or to keep fit, going for a run, swimming or practicing any other sport that we like.
Contact with nature will always be positive, so walks and excursions in the countryside are highly recommended, and we will also feel more relaxed.
Another good option is to do some manual work, which will not only awaken our creativity but at the same time allow us to create beautiful objects to decorate our house or to which we can give a use, such as making a nice doll or making an attractive quilt to our liking.

Collect different objects, paint our house in attractive colors, go out to collect mushrooms, go for a walk and play with our dog, find friends to spend a pleasant time playing cards or some interesting board game, learn to cook new recipes, draw, writing, making a nice puzzle and later turning it into a painting for our house, listening to music, watching a good movie or studying the stars at night, are just a tiny part of all those things that life offers us and of which the only thing that should worry us is that for many years we live we will never have time to experience them all.
