Boredom can be a great support for mindfulness – if we don’t try to fight it. The next time you find yourself with too much time on your hands, or too much of the same old work, food, spouse, or wardrobe, use your boredom as an inquiry. What are you trying to escape, and what are your habitual ways of running from boredom. Can you sit with boredom and watch it pass instead of running from it?
Today I’m grateful for boredom and the lessons it brings. How do you dance with boredom? Have you ever turned boredom into gratitude?
We wish you twenty minutes of mindfulness every day!
