Walk a dog wearing sunglasses and roomy clothes. Count you steps. Calm your mind.

I have a weird problem that's almost the opposite of boredom. There are so many shows/movies/books that I'd like to consume that the desire becomes like a chore and I feel like I'm rushing to keep up. I have to remind myself that these things are supposed to be for pleasure -- though I get very stressed when people say "have you read x" or "do you watch y" because then I feel like I SHOULD.

Easy, just kill it!
I usually eliminate boredom by twiddling my thumbs.

JK, when there are no movies or games, there is always sport.

Haha.

I don't keep up with movies or games or sports. I guess I could exercise more but I'm not consistent at it.

I'm too anxious to try new hobbies. I don't know which books I like and how to find out the new releases. I guess i could try puzzles.

I have a problem with perfectionism where if I get into something I feel I have get into all of it. Not saying you have a problem with perfectionism though. I also feel bad or uneducated when people ask me about something and I don't know the answer because I don't keep up with it at all.
