Boredom Is The Desire For Desire

We’re bored when we know we want something, but we don’t know what it is. Everyone has the ability to create genuine pleasure in their life. We did it as children and we still have that power inside us as adults. The experience of addiction took your time, money, intellectual energy, and your love. These resources are now available to you again and you can use them to find many avenues of expression. You are free to find joyous activities to fill your life (Chopra, 1997). There are unlimited recreation activities and possibilities. Here are some ideas:

  • Camping
  • Fishing
  • Kite flying
  • Rollerblading
  • Dancing
  • Gardening
  • Painting
  • Ceramics

Getting interested? Try to keep an open mind. Find ways to meet new people. It takes effort and courage to find new ways to socialize. Recreation and sports are one way. Joining clubs or groups that share a common interest are another. Try social action and outdoor volunteering, tree planting, ecotourism, historical site restoration or walks to support causes such as cancer research.
