    Default boredom

    really, is there anything worse than boredom?

    I've found that even when things are going badly, as long as they're GOING it's better than stagnation in a way... the stillness works like a self destruct sequence on my brain in a way...

    The worst part is that it seems to work in a loop... bored -> depressed about being bored -> inaction -> more boredom... I need to break the loop

    I know I'm not the only one like this... now someone give me a kick in the ass in the right direction!

    I can relate to that cycle! Well maybe mine is more like doing nothing >> depressed about doing nothing >> doing nothing some more. At least in the winter time especially.

    I think even something as simple as going for a walk or bike ride can break the cycle. When I am moving then I feel like there is hope or something. Especially if I see other people. Also, if it is long enough, you'll work up an appetite and then you'll want to cook/eat.

    Or are we talking at a bigger scale than just feeling bored for a few minutes to a few hours?

    I'm beginning to wonder if I'm slipping into one of my bored phases where it gets hard to slip out of the whole monotony of things for more than a few hours... I'm not even bored with all the aspects of my life, just one, and it's driving me batty

    movement is essential... without it I die...

    i didn't know you sat still!

    i'm currently in a similar rut. i'm thinking about exercising (imagine??).

    are you in a position to get in a car and drive for a bit? that might be the least appealing thing, but i don't drive so i don't know. seems nice, though.

    gromit's right about hunger!

    I don't really sit still well... but I'm stuck in one location... horror of horrors! :horor:

    and at least exercize can bring the pleasures of feeling your muscles move in a way... though probably not the first thing that a stereotypical infp would think of

    the state doesn't want for me to drive, so I bicycle everywhere... and it's been raining lately I'm so used to being able to jump in my car and go whenever I wanted to that I'm sure that's not helping anything!

    and I'm pretty much always hungry... and not just for food, but for life in general

    says the 7...it's the curse whatever...you should probably rearrange your house.

    I'm threatening to do so...

    or at least rearrange my domain... aka the kitchen!

    Like, do you feel like you need a little bit of structure to help you to do the things you want to do?
