Boredom is something that some people find themselves in A LOT and others have so much on their plate that all of their free time is taken up by something on their schedule. But it's something that we all deal with, if you've never been bored, you're not human ;).
Are you aware of your boredom is the real question. The next time you're sitting somewhere twiddling your thumbs, be very conscious of your tendencies. Do you let your mind wander into day dreaming, do you get up and do some air squats, do you reach for your phone to check Facebook or Instagram? We all do SOMETHING in our boredom and I want you to be aware of what it is for you.
It's next to impossible to change something until you're aware you are doing it. Here's an example. Recently I started filming myself more and more and became aware of my tendency of saying UM alllllllllll the time! It was something that I didn't even realize I was doing, not to mention 2 or 3 times in a sentence. Now that I was aware of my actions (even if it was at a subconscious level) I can hear myself saying it and start to make changes away from what I was doing.
This challenge goes out to everyone who realizes that they turn to their electronic devices to cure themselves of boredom (myself included). What if every time you found yourself bored and wanting to check the internet, make the realization and choose to do something else! That could be holding your breath as long as you can, it could be trying a handstand, it could be learning a new skill that you've always wanted to learn, it could be sitting and being mindful for a few minutes, it could be any number of things.
I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU START DOING TO CURB YOUR BOREDOM, POST NEW HABITS TO THE COMMENTS! OR POST WHAT YOU FIND YOURSELF TURING TO WHEN YOU ARE BORED!
