Boredom

Nobody likes being bored, but what happens when we ‘unpack” boredom ?
Boredom appears as a feeling. We give the feeling a label (“Boredom”)
It’s an unwanted feeling, so we usually try to do something to get rid of it – as we do with most unwanted feelings.

Try this:

Close your eyes, and drop the label “boredom”. It might help to visualise the word framed on a wall.

Then feel the remaining feeling and sit with it as best you can. Without the label, it’s just a sensation at best.

Rinse and repeat as necessary.
