Bored With Your Life? - Here’s How You Can Spice It Up!
Do you feel that you no longer feel excited about life?
You feel that life is pretty mundane for you and it’s full of routines. You eat pretty much the same thing for breakfast everyday, commute the same route five days a week. You alternate between 10 outfits and two pairs of shoes.
And then when you have some free time, you will take out your phone and browse through photos on FB or Instagram, scrolling down the apps, just to see what everybody else is up to.
Sometimes you just wish you were somewhere else and doing something else. But somehow you’re not sure what you would be doing. But what you know is — you wish life was more exciting.
How many of you feel this way?
We all have been there at one point in our life. Honestly, I have been there before! Sometimes it lasts for a few days. Sometimes it lasts for years. Actually it’s like the most undesirable feeling ever to feel that your life is not exciting anymore. It’s like you don’t have anything to look forward to the next day.
You just want to go to work, get it over and done with, so that you have enough money to pay the bills.
That was me years ago, after working in the same company in the same lab after about 4 years. But now, Alhamdulillah, I truly believe in living with passion.
Anyway, I’ve come across a good article online and I just wanna share 3 tips to those of you who might feel a little stuck and bored with life.
Do try one of these or all of them, and you might instantly feel like life is exciting again!
One thing they all have in common though — They require you to break out of your comfort zone.
Okay here it goes!
💜 Tip #1: Pick up a new hobby!
Most of us have hobbies! They are the things we enjoy doing in our spare time when we are not working. Things we do to release stress. A new hobby can give you more joy and fun into your life. Your life will also be more exciting because of the new challenges you have to face.
By breaking out of your comfort zone and achieving new goals, you will gain self-confidence and feel proud of yourself. You will meet new people who are passionate about something different from your old gangs or peers. By having new friends, they might give you a new perspective on life and living.
As your new passion grows stronger, you’ll start to have a whole lot of other plans with it.
Maybe you will start planning hiking trips after spending three months mastering the art of hiking. You will want to go to places where you can surf since you can now surf. Or maybe u will start waking up early because the practice of yoga inspires you. So now you start waking up early.
So by picking up a new hobby, suddenly life seems exciting again!
💜 Tip #2: Find new friends and meet new people
This is abit sensitive. Haha. But whether we like to admit it or not, sometimes we feel bored because we feel bored of some of our friends. They don’t inspire us or make us feel excited about life. They live a mundane life. They have no ambitions. They are happy with their routines.
It IS hard to get out of these circle of friends sometimes because they are true friends who have been there for you for all those years. HOWEVER, we are only going to be as successful as the people we surround ourselves with. What I mean is, if we keep hanging out with people who just want to be average and don’t desire success like we do, unfortunately, we might become like them.
But if we hang out with people who are passionate about their lives, we will be affected by their positive energy and enthusiasm and feel inspired!
So…what I’m saying is, know who you want to be. Imagine how you want to feel. Then surround yourself with people who portray that.
If you want your life to be exciting, hang out with those who live exciting lives.
💜 Tip #3: Do something totally different for a living!
Sometimes finding a new job in the same field is not enough. Even though your experience and skill set is valuable to the industry, you can get bored with it after doing it for 10 years.
IF you’re totally up for the challenge, consider moving to ANOTHER Industry! Do something TOTALLY different from what you have been doing for the past 10 YEARS!
If you are a bored banker, why don’t you consider working in hospitality or technology? If you are a stressed lawyer, why don’t you consider becoming a writer instead?
It’s true that most of the people in a similar profession are wired similarly. They think almost the same about life! So when you move to a different industry, you might have a new perspective on life. And you will find yourself MANY new friends and your life will start to feel exciting AGAIN!
Yeah! So there you go! The 3 tips that might really help you make your life exciting again!
