“I’m bored, there’s nothing to do”.
As summer vacation begins for thousands of children this is far too often a familiar complaint. But boredom is generally a totally self-inflicted problem.
The antidote to boredom is curiosity. Curiosity happens when you start to explore the world around you.
You will be less likely to feel bored if you go out, get active, pick up a new hobby, or even volunteer. You will be too busy learning new things or meeting new people to feel bored.
For children the anticipation of summer-fun wanes as the summer goes on and all those previously fun activities start to feel stale.
So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Anti-boredom Month with your family:
Make up a new sport. When you’ve created new rules for an old game, your mind in more engaged and time flies by.
Change the scenery – Set up a tent or a picnic area in your backyard.
Put out a challenge. Design the classic scavenger hunt or let the kids design the challenge for an activity and see what they come up with.
Come up with a list of the most boring things to do and see how the creative juices kick in.
And if all else fails – suggest a list of chores that they can complete. You will be amazed at how quickly they can find activities to entertain themselves.
