How to Combat Boredom

July is Anti-Boredom Month. “We often associate being bored with having nothing to do, but that’s not always the case. Many times, we have plenty to do or are even doing it, but the task at hand does not stimulate our minds. It may be repetitive or not challenging enough.”

Anti-boredom is all about finding creative and healthy ways to combat boredom and stimulate our minds. Here are some ideas of things you can do when you’re feeling bored:
