Bored, Boring, Both?


I usually hate the whole concept of boredom and have always said in the past that “you are only bored when you are being boring.”  I was simply too busy to be bored (and that is probably the key.)

The truth is that right now I am bored.  And it is not from lack of things to do (I have plenty of those.) I think it is just a state of mind.  My weekends are a lot more chill than the week days and sometimes I have a hard time coping.

I guess I am one of those personalities that prefers structure to spare time.  This has been an ongoing issue which really is a luxury if I am being real with myself.  I should stop feeling down about having time and make the most of this time while I have it!


What are your favorite things to do with your spare time?  Comment below to share!

  1. I know exactly what you mean! I like being busy too but once I have a lot of spare time, I feel a bit pathetic because there’s not much to do which is why blogging comes in so handy lol.

    I think some good things to do when you have spare time is actually to write and enjoy the simpler things in life like going for a walk outside.

  2. Hey Alana! You can start off by stopping saying “I have to… I must…” and replace it by “I wish, I’d love to”. Apparently it resets your mind and makes the barrier smaller ;). Perhaps you’re bored because you’re missing a challenge? Like a mental one? xoxo Sarah

    1. I love this and am going to start rephrasing those little messages I tell myself. And I think you’re right, it is a good time to take on some new mental challenges 🙂
