The Young and The Restless

Young guys might be cute but if you’re over 25 they’re just too much hard work…

SEE IT COMING
Watch for the symptoms and deal with boredom early on. “Spot the thought and feelings that occur just before enthusiasm disappears and tackle these,” advises Dr Chris Johnson (author of Find Your Power).

STAY FOCUSED
Set goals to keep you inspired – motivation is a powerful banisher of boredom.

DON’T GIVE UP
Once you embark on anything, whether it’s a job, a relationship, an art course or exercise, push past the first burst of excitement to experience the satisfaction that comes from sustained effort and commitment, says Durban life coach Cathy Yuill.

KEEP CHANGES SMALL

When boredom threatens, don’t give up on what you’re doing – first try doing it a little differently, breaking routines and bringing in a sense of novelty.

STAY SOCIAL
Don’t isolate yourself in seeking relief from boredom.

GET OFF THAT COUCH

Get out and exercise – it’s a great boredom-beater and re-energiser, says Durban lifestyle and fitness coach Noeleen Bridle.

CURB BOREDOM
There’s some drudgery in everyone’s life. Don’t let it overwhelm you.

BE CREATIVE
If you truly can’t find anything to grab you in all that’s out there, write, paint or compose something yourself!
