"Life is boring" or "I’m bored with life" or "my life is boring" are all pretty big statements! Perhaps it would help to first figure out exactly what we’re dealing with. It probably can't happen too soon for you, because I wouldn't be in the least surprised if you're depressed as well.
I have here a step-by-step approach to help you discover how you can stop feeling bored, by getting to the root of your problem. I so hope that we can find a way to stop you feeling bored - I know you have it in you to make a difference - everyone has.
Let's try to break down the problem into chunks to become absolutely clear about why you're bored. This will increase the chance of finding creative solutions and taking action with the right solutions for you.
You’ll find some probing questions to help you figure out the underlying cause of your current state of mind. Try to be totally honest with yourself – nobody’s looking!
You’ll feel more in control and buoyed up when you’re in the process of tackling your personal 'stuff' in a positive way. Relying entirely on other people to create excitement in your life and to make you feel better has the potential to leave you feeling helpless. You know now what exactly requires your attention if you want to be in the driving seat of your life.
Just haven't got the motivation? I recommend the hypnosis download Self Motivation Booster.
If you’re suffering from depression I’d really like you to do something about that first. I don't mean taking antidepressants - they put you at risk of suffering further episodes of depression in the future (not likely something your doctor is going to tell you!). Have a look at my page on natural depression treatments.
There's also loads of information on this site about overcoming depression, including depression in men, so I really hope you'll explore these pages if this is something that you think might be a problem for you.
You can also connect with a professional, licensed therapist. It's now very easy to set up an online session, regardless of the device you're using. For further information, see my page on online mental health counselling.
Just in case you’ve not been able to take full advantages of opportunities that have come your way because you just don't feel confident enough, I’ve sourced a great confidence booster.
If you’re lacking in confidence, you may be avoiding anything that remotely looks like you have to come out of your comfort zone. It could therefore be that over time you have 'translated' that into feeling: "my life is boring".
I so would like you to tackle that lack of confidence so that you can engage with people and opportunities without being held back by your fear. Again, hypnosis is great for helping with this problem. I'll tell you more a little further on. First something else...
Just in case it appeals to you - what about building your own online business? Here's the system I used to build my online business (and I'm by no means a techie!)...
As a professional couple counsellor, I know that very often people's feelings of dissatisfaction and boredom in their lives can be caused by relationship problems.
Perhaps you're already secretly feeling that your relationship isn't quite right at the moment. I so hope my advice on this page will help you to figure out if your relationship is causing your current feelings of boredom.
In addition, I urge you to get my Breakup Prevention Kit for Couples to spice up your conversations.
Perhaps you feel that your life is boring because you feel stuck with your partner.
A 'yes' to any of these questions requires a conversation with your partner. If you haven’t talked about it, then pluck up the courage to do so. To help you get started, there are plenty of pages on my site about relationship communication.
Several of the questions relate to you personally, requiring you to take responsibility for your role in the relationship. However, if you’ve answered 'yes' to these questions, you and your partner need to have a conversation.
These questions require you to think about your relationship history. Our brain works by 'pattern matching'. It compares what’s happening in the here and now with a huge array of previously established patterns and templates. It does this at an unconscious level.
My questions will help you to create a conscious awareness of what exactly you’re doing. That way you’re more likely to get to the root of the problem of your 'boring life'.
If you’re flummoxed by this one, maybe you could consider counselling to help you figure it out and move on to leading a more fulfilling life. A therapist is trained to help you focus on your innate resources and meet your essential emotional needs.
I have some ideas for you that may just inject some energy into your life again. Some of them you can start straight away. Some you’ll need to spend a little time mulling over. Just imagine how different life will be once you’ve started on a completely new project. You will:
Being bored with life is so disheartening! Yet I know for sure that you have the inborn resources you need to get going and create a sense of excitement in your life. Having a purpose will dispel the boredom forever.
Know that you're not here by accident! You are as individual and as special as any star in the skye. Dare to step up to the plate!
