How To Cure Boredom

I strive to live with a sense of wonder, but I often fail. Even when I'm doing what I love—in one of the richest countries in the world, where all of my basic needs are taken care of, and then some—I become acclimated to great experiences.

Just as melancholy knows no bounds and can strike at any time, so too can boredom.

You've been floating along, doing okay, but suddenly it hits you: you're disenchanted and stuck in a rut.

Melancholy is difficult, but thankfully boredom is a bit easier to fix. The answer is to be present and aware. More accurately, the answer is to be curious. There's no cure for curiosity. (Why would you want one?)

I like to be curious. I like to ask questions and meet new people. When things go wrong, I'm open to new direction.

If this happens to you, perhaps it's time to march into new territory. Change a habit. Get up early or stay up late. Change your lifestyle to focus—and feel—better.

Everyone can become routinized. When boredom strikes, get back to curiosity as fast as you can.
