Life is full of mystery. When we born into this world, It's definitely Gods plan to let us live in a World he created thousands of years ago. He just use our parents as an instrument and His purpose to let us experience this life is ours to search for. Living our life to the fullest will make us really happy even there are a lot of problems, difficulties and trials to encounter. And in every day of our life never stop dreaming. We dream to be successful, we dream to gain wealth and dream to be looked up by other people around us. But don't you ever think that no matter how hard we worked, no matter how much wealth we gain, we never stop and say here I am I there's nothing I have to wish for. I am really happy and contented. But instead we just change our goals into higher ones and it never ends. And that makes our life boring because achieving all those goals we set only makes us temporarily happy. It's not an everlasting joy. I just guess our life becomes boring because we go far away from what God really plan for us, we never searched for the real purpose of our life which is to live our life according to is plans for us. How about you? How does life become boring according to you opinion? Can you share us tips on how to overcome boredom?

Life only becomes boring when you lose your purpose in living. I don't think there is such techniques or tips to overcome boredom. As for me, it's how you view life and what drives you to continue with it. Let's have a genuine purpose for living and develop an intimate relationship with our GOD.

Life becomes boring because the person itself makes it that way. What I mean is that we are the one who make our life dull. For instances like all we do is drinking, smoking and other vices, of course our life will become dull, in such a way that all we experience is health problems/diseases. For me, ease away boredom and to make your life fruitful, grab every opportunity that passes you by. 'Cause there's a possibility that it will make you satisfied.

I think without suffering the feeling of hungry could not we konw how sweety and happy to enjoy the delicious food, without being tortured by the disease never can we know how happy we are in good health\(^o^)/~~ So, the same, if you never get bored you won't know how happy it is after you overcome your boredom. I love to be a child, but time goes by, i can not pretend to ignore the coming problems: finding a job without my parents' help, making enough money to prove my ability, even considering what to cook everyday to support my weak body enough nutrition. %_

To me, when there's nothing constructive for me to do and when I'm drifting further and further from my life goals, and when I find that the things that I do have no more meaning, then that will be the time when I find life boring. Take for example the most common situations---earning money. Many people work and work to earn a lot of money just to give themselves and their family a better life. However, as they work harder and harder, they sort of become very robot-like. They find no more joy in working and will find that working is a chore to them, instead of their passion. Now, this is very worrying and hence, they will start to find life boring. For me, I overcome boredom by doing things that excite me and sometimes I'll use boredom to curb boredom. Things like going to the internet and type: 'typing test' and start calculating my typing speed and I find that a good way to curb my boredom. I don't know how it works for you but I find that calculating my typing speed is a good way to curb boredom.

hello mayrah! The mind, in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell out of heavhen. Therefore, if we keep on thinking that life is boring, it will be boring. Boredom is a feeling, a state of mind which we can influence and change if we choose to. No matter how exciting one's life is to most people, if the person thinks his life is boring, then its definitely boring for him. That is why, if you want your life to be exciting and not be boring, you must start with your way of thinking. You must think positively, you must be pro-active in your life. You can make your life boring or exciting, its our choice. For me, i treat everything and everyday in my life as exciting, for a myriad of reasons. Each new day brings new knowledge, new opportunity to live life as it was meant to be lived, to correct the mistakes we have done yesterday, to meet new people, friends, to better our life. Life only becomes boring for boredom-filled minds.Fill your minds with positive thoughts and you'll find yourself excited with every new things you see, meet and find. happy mylotting!

i think life is boring when you lack the need to survive, the need to go on everyday. It just makes your life senseless and dull. you also need someone loveones to share your life.....you need to appreciate what God has given you everyday for you to relaize not to be bored at all

Well, life become boring if we chose to be boring. Life is so simple it is only us who makes it complicated. We get bored if we expect too much. We only get bored if we don't appreciate what we have and the things surrounded us. Have you noticed that the one are blessed in life either well off or average person who get easily bored compared to those who are not? People living in a slam area are more happy though they don't have everything in life it is because they enjoy the blessings they received. Boredom is a choice.

Boredom is just a state of mind. We get bored when we have nothing to do or if we have low attention span (especially effective in a boring discussion inside a classroom). To simply overcome boredom, I just find something better to do or something productive to do. Doing something productive makes me think that there will be results that are favorable to me so I don't lose interest therefore don't get bored too fast. One thing to do if you're bored is sleep. That's the result of ultimate boredom, you put yourself into a trance until you fall asleep (also effective inside a classroom).

I don't know. But it helps me to go walk. For instance, all my friends have girlfriends and it really depresses me because they always go on double dates and stuff, and now I'm now pretty much out of the loop. So I listened to my ipod to reduce my stress. My life is so bring right now. This is just my opinion only. People do thing over and over again. Life is just boring to another people who has that point of view. Just my 2 cents.
