Where is the best place to get rid from boredom?

October 20, 2008 7:45am CST
Have you ever think like giving up with everything? Seems like you had enough with this kind of life, everything is just against you? Thats what I felt these days, I tried to do things just to get of these silly thoughts about life. So I was asking myself where should I go to have some fun atleast to make me forget even just a minute of life without being bored or unhappy. So I went to the cemetery most of these days and I enjoyed it having fun in there it really works, it made me realize how precious life is! Where should you go to if you feel like this?

hi lovelyvelle, I think the best place to get rid from boredom is try something new everyday. It makes you excited and challenge at the same time. You dont have to go out of your place but you can make something different everyday. like if you dont usually cook at home, you can try cooking different dishes that you havent eated yet. Or if you havent tried playing games online like chess, scrabble, etc. have a try and you well discovered that you are playing with other person from different countries, if you havent try learning another language from other countries, you can start learning one.. Anything that is new to you will brake boredom. But if you want to go out in your home, the best way it go to the the place of your friend that you havent meet for a long time. And have some bonding moment. Or create an adventure activities that you having done before like mountain climbing at Mt. Apo, or go to a crowded places like malls just strolling around window shopping, or anywhere you like to go that you have never been before.

Wow I got a lot of encouragement now, thanks for the people who responded to my posting. It made me smile whenever I read it, and helped me encourage my ownself. Sometimes, I just felt like I am alone and thats true because I live by my own always in my room whenever I finished from work. I don't go out very often maybe thats why I got so bored and easily got depressed. I appreciate those people who gives me nice response, keep up the good work guys! Happy mylotting.

Why do you think railway station may not be safe for a female? Why what it is like there? I have never been to railway station yet, because I didnt go to places like that. Is it crowded and what can you see in there? Can you share some with me, about how did you enjoy it going there? It seems like interesting! I heard the word railway station but never been there yet.

dear lovelyvelle, well often females when on isolated places or unknown places are seen alone then it may happen that they may be ill treated. but this is not always true. It again depends on the kind of location the platform is located. i am surprised that u never have been on platform of railway stations. i wish u can be with me and then i can show you some real life scenes. It is a place where i prefer to sit at isolated place and see all kind of persons busy with their schedules and their efforts, hurries, plannings, problems etc etc. somewhere couples are enjoying there journey and sometime some couples are not agreed on some issue. kids are playing, yougesters are enjoying. Train drivers have different life and so all other important persons doing their duty round the clock in a set natural way. And a lot more things to see and learn.

i think the best place to get rid of boredom is everywhere.. just think happy and have a positive attitude and a happy disposition, then it would not be as bored.. it's all in the mind that's what they say, and somehow, i believe in it.. but if you ask me, i love going to the beach with the reggae beat and the sun in my face if i want to unwind and get the stress out from my system! it makes me appreciate nature with the seabreeze and the sand.. the cool water on my skin and the sounds of the waves!

Yes maybe its all in the mind, but sometimes it depends what you are facing and what kind of things that will make you think that way! Thats why it says its all in the mind because obviously the mind is the one who thinks about everything in life. But its not always the mind that can be followed all the time, its the heart too. When you get bored of things in life I don't think its just all in the mind!

guess you are right.. but there is always a way to relieve your self from being stress. it's always an option.. if you want to stay stressed out of let go of the things that are making you stressful.. so just stay happy.. apprecaire life. the heart can affect your mood, and being stressful sometimes is caused by too much emotion.. try to control that too..

I am bored often. I usually do research on the internet into things I am interested in. Or I read a book, which is also what I do to relieve stress. I try to do something different that I enjoy doing to get out of that mood. Just walking helps me too.

Oh really? I thought its just me who got bored very often, I was thinking sometimes, it might be just my attitude that made me bored. Because I just got fed up with things easily, nothing stays with me long enough. At first I found it interesting to research anything on the internet but later on I got bored with it, so I didnt do that much now.

Wow... what a unique place that you go to find peace and you don't feel bored about it? And don't you feel scared being there? If I were you, I think I don't want to be in a cemetery because I will get scared. If I am scared, then my mind won't be at peace and I won't be able to feel happy or calm. But whatever it is, I respect that it is your choice of place and nobody can tell you it is the wrong place for you. As for me I like being in a quiet place where there is nobody. If there is to be somebody I will allow only some people whom I trust and love. For example my husband is never out of my list because I trust and love him very much. He makes me comfortable with my life and whenever he is around he makes me feel safe and happy. I will also allow my niece to accompany me because she is so energetic, happy and she is only a small girl so she never judge me on anything. What she has is pure love and sincerity.

What? Isn't the cemetery one of the most boring places on earth? I find it boring. I'd rather go to the mall. I can shop, meet people, watch a movie, or buy a snack. You don't even have to spend money to enjoy a day at the mall. Many people just hang out there and watch other people.

So far, I haven't had that thought cross my mind, but the best way to get rid of boredom (espeacially here in New York), get your friends together, and hit a club, go dancing all night, after that you will feel so tired but having alot of fun, that you won't even think of being bore, not for a long long time. Because being good friends helps bring you out that boredom.

You know maybe because you are not living in a life like mine thats why you havent had this kind of thoughts. But sure yes people are living their own way because its their life and its the kind of life they are having and facing everyday. But youre luckier because you've got friends in there. And yes I agree it's not easy to live a life without friends, but I just can't have or make friends in this place where I am. I found it difficult or maybe because I am a stranger.

Life is always precious,vital and blissful.Individual life is just like an wave in the ocean of universal consciousness.Life is an expression of divinity and the light of supreme God.You will always remain fulfilled and perfectly happy,once you begin to know your true Self-" Who you really are? " You need not run after any outside object,place or thing in quest of peace,happiness and bliss. You will find heavenly joy, once you discover your true self and become aware of the true meaning of life. I have published few articles in my blog which you may like to read and feel happy. The link is http://knowyourself.blog.co.in/ Thanks.

Wow I think you're right! You have just gave me a knock on my head (mind) to be awake to face what is real life! You know sometimes I am still confuse who the real me, and what kind of a person I am, I am still thinking about it. Most of the times when I got big problems I try to escape or ran away from it first before I will try to solve it! Sometimes I am just afraid to face the reality in life that's one of my weakness.

What about coming here to myLot. Make friends that it will be fun to chat with. Learn new things about the way people live all over the world. I don't have a problem with getting rid of boredom wherever I am. I am just fascinated with life.....so when I feel bored I find something that seems interesting and learn all that I can about it. I do that by either just observing and noticing things about it, reading something, finding a new use for it, etc. Presents me with a challenge and often teaches me something in the process. For me, being curious keeps boredom at bay.

You know why I got bored doing like that go to library and read books and go to a bookstore and buy books to read, because I have a room full of my collected books and I called it library of my own. And sometimes I just think I had read enough for me, so I had to find something nicer to do, and more fun. And these days I found it more fun and I enjoyed being in a place like this, you know I am surfing on mylot while I am in the cemetery right now.

I have a very loud life. I mean loud environment. So whenever I want to change a little thing about the life i am having I usually go to the bookstore and scan books there. But if there is a place where I can read a book and drink coffee at the same time, that would be the best place. I have a place like this back home. But now I just stay in my room. The place that you chose is kinda different but people are different from each other and I respect your choice. have a great day. Happy mylotting. =)

Thanks for respecting my choice, yes I agree with you. Most of the time when I finish from work I came to my room straight away and I just don't go anywhere else. I tried reading books and got bored with it, so I put that kind of hobby down, as like I don't enjoy it that much as it should be fun. So now, I am more enjoying going to a place like cemetery!

we all need a place for us to have space and a time for ourselves... a short escape is best, like visiting a church, going to a friend's place, a short out-of-town getaway and or a mall etc...
21 Oct 08
Going to church is the very thing I missed to do with my life. I haven't got a chance to go to church for a few years now. I missed the church where I used to go to, and now I am a backslider. Maybe thats why I am somewhat kinda lost! Lost in life, and just lost about everything! That made me think I had enough with this kind of life. Its too much for me, because I just don't understand and listen to myself.
