Most lives are spent waiting. Waiting for dreams to manifest, for trouble to end, and for life to be happy. Golden Zen reflects on the brillance of the NOW and the winks we receive from our Source to remind us we possess it all. Golden Zen is practical and mystical, instructive and reflective.

How to Prevent Boredom

Tips on How you Can Prevent Boredom

 Prevent BoredomLife is such a ride! It’s not hard to prevent boredom.

There are sooooooooooooooooooooo many opportunities to be, do, create, think, hide, play…HOLY PEROGIES!  It doesn’t stop.

For someone like me who cries in Libraries (what a CRY BABY! :-) )  the world appears so vast and there is so much to experience.  I just don’t have time to be bored.  I am stimulated with the possibilities of what can be or what exists behind the covers and in the pages or in the next moment of the day.

However, I hear it from a lot of people – they are bored. And boredom is difficult as it leads to other unfriendly side effects: malaise, self-doubt, idleness, restlessness, irritability and maybe worse – losing our inner joy and contentment.

Here are a few tips on how to prevent boredom:

1. Welcome your Day – seriously, say hello when you wake up.  Treat the day as if it were a person.  Snuggle up, kissie- face. Enjoy.   And if that is just a bit over the top for you – at least say “mornin.”

2. Say Howdy to the Weather – COME ON PEOPLE.  After all the years you have been alive, and all the complaining you have done about the weather, and ALL THE COMPLAINING you have heard from others about the weather – can we just let this one go?  Simply say – is it raining, snowing, sleeting, sunning, blowing, blistering or black out?  Whatever ever it is – say YES

Because you can’t change it.  You can’t alter it with one thing you say or do.

But you can altar your experience of it!  WE can embrace the weather like our skin and say you know what – I live in it and I will make the most of it today.  What can I do in a hurricane?  Bring it on! (just kidding God)

3. Ask for Clues – One of my personal favorites.

All you need to do is talk to the big blue sky, GOD, Buddha, (whatever you need to call that WONDER that gives us Magic to play with everyday) and ask for clues.

Here’s how it works:

1. Ask for clues. (“Send me clues please” will work just fine)

2. Put your attention on the moment you are in, each moment.  I suspect not two hours will go by before you notice a clue.  It can come from a commercial, a phone call, a newspaper, blog, your puppy, your bird, your mom, taking out the garbage…literally anything.

3. Understand the first clue is just the beginning.  Don’t turn off.

4. Stay tuned, and pay attention.  What are your clues about?

5. To insure you get out of the rut – keep a written summary each day of the clues you noticed.   You don’t have to interpret the clues!  Just pay attention and there will be a thread you begin to notice and can follow. See where they lead, and say mmm bye bye to the boredom blues.

I must have a hundred tips to preventing Boredom.  But not enough time to type them all.  Love to hear your ideas – keep them clean please. :-)

    I really like your Tag cloud topics and look forward to, what I know, will be a wonderful Blog. I only started in September? last year, and I had to read and re-read WordPress’ advice for new bloggers that blogging is hard and that it takes patience to get ‘likes’, comments, an audience and followers.

    I’m by no means at all one of the popular ones, but I like writing.

    It’s lovely to meet you and wish you joy and abundance :-) Immie :-)

  2. Great to hear from you and have your visit Imogen! Clues is one of my favorite topics actually. :-)
