Boredom is seen as a negative emotion, an emotion we try to avoid by keeping ourselves busy. But with the power of boredom, we can unlock the mental toughness of our mind and strive for greatness. When I’m in the state of boredom this is my quiet time has it allows me to reflect on my life and see what improvements are needed. It also allows me to learn a lot more about myself and spend quality time looking after me. So why is boredom such a good thing:
Boredom allows you to be more creative. Creativity allows us to come up with great ideas. Everything on this earth started of has an idea which the idea was then put into action and become something GREAT! Just has Albert Einstein says “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”
Boredom allows you to be more goal-oriented. I find that creating a vision board of how I want my life to be is fulfilling, the joy I experience cutting up images of a magazine and sticking them onto a board makes me feel very happy about myself and my future. Seeing your goals and things you want can be motivating making you chase after your dreams each and every day.

Boredom is not a problem, in boredom we can truly find ourselves.
