1 | There are two ways out of boredom. Either you do what you can to get yourself motivated again and keep working through your to do list. Or you can embrace the boredom and turn it into time for play or rest.
2 | Boredom is irrational. We find ourselves wanting to do something, and knowing there are many things we could be doing, but not wanting to do anything in particular.
3 | Boredom usually strikes when we’re working on mundane, repetitive tasks. When our brain isn’t having to work as hard, our mind wanders and it can be hard to concentrate and push through the boredom to get the task completed.
4 | Take ownership of your boredom. If you’re bored at work, it’s your responsibility to make sure your job is challenging you. There is always something you can do to change your role slightly, or to shake up the way you complete your work to make it more interesting and more stimulating for your brain.
