HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING IN OUR COMMUNITY!

Walking the line: Boredom or Seasonal Depression?

There is a thin line sometimes between depression and boredom. As a population, we are overstimulated.  The sheer number of choices we have available makes all them appear as white noise. It’s a little like having nothing to watch on TV but having access to 100+ channels, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.  Nothing is “special”.  Maybe you have the same routine at home and it’s a little lack luster.  You are swept along by your day instead of being fully present. 

When you have things to look forward to, you move through your day with more energy and purpose.  It helps to lighten the mood which makes you feel less stressed, which leads to better sleep, which helps you make better decisions, which leads to a positive mindset, etc.  

How many times have you made it to the end of the week without a “bright spot” that you can remember during the week?  What if the feeling you’re experiencing isn’t depression or seasonal affective disorder but rather just a feeling of “blah” and being a little bored with your routine.

Ways to give your day more meaning

Below are a few ways to add more purpose and meaning to your day.  It may be just the remedy for a case of the “blah’s”.

  • Do something for someone else
  • Start a DIY project (or plan how to finish an existing project)
  • Plan a weekend trip
  • Plan a date night
  • Schedule a workout (and then do it)
  • Read a book
  • Make a list of things you truly want or want to do (then make a plan on how to make it happen)

When you have things to look forward to, you move through your day with more energy and purpose.  It helps to lighten the mood which makes you feel less stressed, which leads to better sleep, which helps you make better decisions, which leads to a positive mindset, etc.  

When we look at HOW we live our lives every day and what we do during our day, sometimes the answer is right at our fingertips.  A little bit of fine tuning is all that is needed.
