  • That would be "bored" not "board". And I am never bored. Seriously.

  • Try new things as often as you can. Make a list of all the things you've never done and work your way through the list.

  • I make plans. Even if I don't see them all through. Kinda like fishing - cast a line out there enough times and you're bound to snag something, right? So, I make plans. Plans for meals, plans for projects, plans for road trips, plans for anything.

  • I'm never bored....

    You can find a hobby, journal (write a book), take walks, volunteer at shelters or schools, visit friends or the elderly in senior homes.
    Life is out there to live!!

  • I know what you mean. The routine of life can get tedious then you look back and wonder what the hell you've really done with the past 10,15, 20 years (yes, besides raising a family!). I'm still young but I'm trying to avoid ever feeling that. I try to find NEW things do to in life. Take a new class, find a new hobby, learn new things. When we can afford it, take a new vacation. Every 1-2 weeks I give myself something to look forward to be it out for a nice family dinner or a quick weekend getaway with my husband. Anything to keep life exciting and get me out of the day to day routine. I'll go crazy.
