Let’s admit. 2020 has been the worst year due to the deadly rise of COVID-19 pandemic coupled with famine, economic crisis, health crisis and whatnot. On top of that, we are now forced to stay inside our homes, maintain social distancing while going out, and not attend parties anymore. The boredom has struck of pretty hard and we are now bored of getting bored.
Thank god we have social media, TikTok, and Netflix to keep ourselves entertained but most importantly, we have memes to get us through these tedious quarantine times. But before you give you the ultimate dose of funny and “bored” memes that you can totally relate, let’s first jump into what boredom really is, and how do we get bored?
What does “boredom” mean?
Cambridge Dictionary defines “boredom” as the state of being “bored.” Being bored is usually defined as the feeling weary and impatient as one has nothing to do or finds no interest in what he/she is doing now. We all have experienced these feelings at some point in our lives and he it strikes us we really want to get out of it as soon as possible.
Occasional boredom, especially at times like this is normal but chronic boredom can lead to serious health issues including obesity and depression. That’s why no matter how bored you are, don’t forget to tell your loved ones how you are feeling and regularly check up on each other.
Why am I so bored?
One generally feels bored when he/she has to go through the same or repetitive experiences. For instance, most of us are staying inside the home, following the same routine and we all are complaining about how boring it’s getting. Some people get bored because they have to do tedious tasks at the office like only printing papers or doing tasks repetitively. Most men find going to the supermarket or shopping boring while most young kids find sitting and studying absolutely boring.
Our brains get alert when something exciting or unpredictable happens and for predictale things like going grocery shopping won’t stimulate the brain, resulting in boredom and the wanting to escape from it. Some other causes of boredom include loneliness, lack of stimulation, inactivity, avoiding social interaction or new experiences and so on. It might surprise you to know that a lot of scientific research has been going on to find out why people actually get bored. Several studies indicate that we tend to get distracted and bored because it is difficult for us to pay attention to inner details such as emotions or perceptions, or when we have to do things from outside pressure and when we are self aware that this task is boring and doesn’t have any benefit for one just to pay the attention.
