For some reason i can't handle being almost always bored, 24/7. I've always kept very busy. But being bored makes me feel restless, & also there's no stimulus to divert my attention away from my worrying thoughts, which could explain my constant restlessness.

My definition of boredom may be different than above. As when i'm bored, i'm NOT RELAXED, but are RESTLESS & ANXIOUS & NERVY (in a moderate way, not extreme).

When I'm bored I feel hopelessness and scared.

OMG me too lol. Literally.

I wonder if people back in the days or in other countries that dont have access to technologies have boredom issues like us or atleast not as bad as city tech folk like us. I feel like they accustomed to environments and learn to see other areas amusing in life that we can't see.

I wonder if by being bored, there is nothing to divert the mind off the hopelessness & fear that is ever-present but below the surface of our awareness? Maybe people in poor countries, and who live off the land aren't as neurotic/paranoid/hopelessness/scared/etc as those in the towns/cities, who are far from nature & the natural rhythms of earth & themselves?

I agree that making a goal is probably the best way to get yourself from being bored. I could suggest any number of activities, but you can find them all infinitely boring if you don't a goal or dream to work towards.

I used to be bored all day long at home. I would draw, read, watch TV, but I still had this overwhelming feeling of being bored. I wasn't really happy doing anything. It didn't matter how interesting a book was or how funny a TV show got.

What finally got me to be really interested and completely NOT bored was setting a goal for myself. My goal was to start a blog from the ground up and make it successful. Ever since, I've been busting my *** off to learn more about making great blogs, reading up on great content ideas, even learning code to improve my site.

I'm not trying to convince you to start your own blog. Instead, you should find something that you have always dreamed of or set a new goal that you think would be amazing to achieve. And then work for it. Once you have something you really really want, you won't ever be bored as long as you're working towards it.

Best of luck!

It's a bad feeling.

They probably don't have boredom issues because they have other things to do.

I will try to find a goal or dream to work on but it's going to be hard to find one. Thank you!
