I cant even remember when I was bored the last time. Now I have a two year old daughter, so there is never boredem- only work, hectic and tiredness. Well not to forget the fun of course:) But even when I was a teenager and a child I cant remember a time when I was bored- there was always something to do- study, playing, painting, sewing, meeting friends and so on. Today we have the internet and there is so much on offer- ideas, hobby instructions, working possiblities, e- books and so much more.

Oh how I remember the baby days, loved them but do not miss them. , the kiddies have you running back and forth all day long. As for the internet yes this is quite entertaining, however there are times that one can get bored with the computer and find it boring the wits out of them. Be blessed with your baby and

Yeah you are right, I havent even thought of the computer becoming boring. I guess that because I have so many other things to do, I hardly get to spent time on things I really would want to. Here are the things I love doing: writing, Sports, watching a film, reading,trying out new recipes, crafts and arts, meeting friends, making a spa at home-like making facials and masks by myself

I don't usually get bored. I only do when i really don't have anything to do..since im the type of person who is not content without doing anything so basically i don't get that feeling everyday. And i do get bored if what im doing is not making me happy anymore and when the things im doing is not making me progress or if i have been doing it for a long time that there is no fun in it anymore. When i get bored, i usually listen to the music, relax a bit or do something entertaining.

Now a days, I get bored a lot. Not much to do and none of my friends are around anymore. There is also no where to go. Families are gone and I feel locked up like a prisoner. The only way to escape is through the internet. I can webcam and talk to my friends but we can't do things together. They do things without me. Sad isn't it? Most of them don't even have webcams. I love joking around with them and talk about memories but I feel empty anyways. Things aren't the same.

Hi everyone, these are my Top 5 things to do to get rid of boredom 1. Start to get yourself fit, put together a new fitness program, including at the very least push ups, sits ups, skipping and pull ups. 2. Make a collage of your favorite photo’s using an old picture frame. 3. Why to test your skills as a ventriloquist. Grab your favorite cuddly toy and see if you are able to make them talk without moving your lips. 4. Earn CA$H. Find a sponge, bucket and some soap, then make a car wash sign saying “Saying Car Wash Today Only 5$” and starting looking for business. 5. Go the the library and find some books on how to make shadow puppets using only your hands. Have a nice day!

when i feel bored,i do listen to music,or do some household chores,or might as well,make myself useful by doing some artworks or do online stuffs. i can also play with my niece and hang out with her or with friends. there are some things,or small things around us which needs to have attention,so there's no need to be bored at all.i can say one can be bored if he/she is already used to doing some same old things over and over again,but still we have to find soe things which can make us happy,not to complain and complain.

I rarely feel to get bored since even the fact that I am just here at home I am still doing something like cooking then after that of course I am going to post here at mylot to earn money as well. If I am getting bored like in traffic I am listening to the music that is from my phone.

I can get bored very often and what works for me is to get up and take either a walk and or hit the sack and take a nap. It helps momentarily but not long term. See boredom is the act of not having anything to do or the mind believing that too much has gone on and now it wants to shut down. So taking a break from things usually helps.

I will usually feel bored if I am at home and nothing I can do. Not very often, really, because I am a creative person that can find solution to deal with boredom. I usually read books or browse the internet if boredom is around. Sometimes I do traveling to new place or location, some that I never visit before. The best advice to people who feel bored is to do something out of ordinary. or try something new.

If a person is bored, it's either he is idle or he doesn't like what he's doing. To get away from boredom, a person has to engage in meaningful activities that focus on helping others or in putting others' interest ahead of himself because the Bible is saying that there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.
