Mindful : October 2016
How would you describe your experience of boredom? • “So crushing I want to chew my arm off.” • “A lost opportunity to be creative but this can be productive when you re- arrange your priorities!” • “Since I am the most interesting and fun person I know, I am not sure that I have experienced boredom.” • “Kind of itchy.” • “One big yawn.” • “.............” • “Resistance to nondoing.” • “Blah!” • “Extra energy in my body/limbs but numbness in my brain.” The best thing to do when you’re bored is: • “Daydream or find something you enjoy to do.” • “Go for a walk.” • “I enjoy puzzles such as sudoku or crosswords.” • “Chill.” • “Contact a friend.” • “Slerp.” (Note: We’re not sure what this means, but it sounds kind of nice.) • “Read and sip on wine.” • “Think about something you haven’t had time to think about.” • “Sit with it and let it drift away.” • “ Write in a journal. There’s always something for you to process.” • “Still don’t know. Thinking about it is boring.” • “Stay off the damn smartphone.” What’s one hobby you can’t believe you do because it seems so terribly boring? • Read nonfiction • Meditate • Watch documentaries • Organize stuff • Listen to my husband go on about his computer issues and how they were solved • Data entry • Rearrange the silverware drawer • Dusting • Pull weeds • Watch my chickens ● AD AD the mindful survey October 2016 mindful 9 To meet and learn from the best writers and teachers on mindful- ness today, sign up for our email newsletters at mindful.org.
