Choose a Different Approach

Boredom is the route of all evil – the despairing refusal to be oneself. Soren Kierkegaarde.


Doing the same thing, month after month, year after year inevitably leads to boredom. Sheer, mindless boredom. Guaranteed to produce ennui and squeeze the joy out of your life.

Are you bored? The only real cure for boredom is to throw yourself into some sort of activity that will totally engage both your your mind and your heart. When you do, you won’t see the time – and you’ll find happiness that you never thought you would. Easier said than done, I know, but there it is.

The way out of boredom begins with a change of some sort, something that many have a great deal of difficulty accepting. Change is something we all resist even when we know we shouldn’t. Why?

Change has a considerable impact on the human mind. To the fearful, it is threatening because it means things might get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things might get better. To the confidant it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make it better.

Which one of the three are you?

If you have been seriously contemplating taking a different approach but have been hesitating, here are some exercises to get you started in the practice of making changes… you will be amazed at how they can impact on your life!

  1. Take a different route to work – change your daily routine.
  2. Change your hair style – change your attitude.
  3. Listen to music you don’t usually listen to – change your mind set.
  4. Change your style of dress – change your appearance
  5. Invite a new couple for dinner – change the conversation.

Let me know how it went! And good luck!
