…By dealing with your values

Nobody wants to feel bored.

I am stuck in a situation that I feel is irrelevant.

Why do we get bored?

Lack of perceived value

Repetition or Monotony

Lack of autonomy

Lack of awareness

Desiring stimulation

The gap between potential and reality

What’s so bad about feeling bored?

Boredom tells us something about our behaviour, our emotions, our values or our expectations.

Am I more likely to get bored?

Dealing with boredom

Keep track, and set a reminder

Determine the cause of the missing percentage

Determine your values

Set yourself the challenges

Use the opportunity
