Are You Bored and Depressed? - Keep Yourself Occupied

Are you or someone you know feeling bored and depressed?

Boredom is a form of mental fatigue which is unlike physical fatigue, and boredom can actually drive some people to depression.

Post retirement from work, moving from a hectic city life to the countryside, traveling across countries in connection with work, etc, involve certain lifestyle altering periods where one is suddenly left to get accustomed to a completely new way of life.

Some who have lived in a city for the most part and enjoyed a very busy life might not find it easy to adjust to living in smaller towns, where life is much more relaxed and slow-paced. Such a situation can contribute to one feeling bored and feeling that he or she is not enjoying life anymore.

This kind of boredom and lack of activity in a person's life can lead to depression. Thus, being bored and depressed are closely linked and if one is not careful, one can slip into depression without realizing it. Therefore, it is important for people to learn to cope with such sudden or drastic changes in lifestyle by keeping oneself occupied as much as possible.

If one finds that one is increasingly left with a lot of spare time and no activity to get involved in, it is advisable to enroll oneself into one or two activities that one enjoys. Yoga, dance, music, aerobics, reading, walking, cooking and preparing a healthy meal, etc - there are several extremely enjoyable activities that one can participate in which can help one stay fit and healthy and generally feel good about oneself. These, of course, can help prevent one lapsing into a state of being bored and depressed.

Boredom is a state of mind. Therefore, mind-stimulating activities, games, sports, etc, that involve thought and swift action will ensure all boredom disappears and make good use of all the energy that is lying unutilized within the human body. Thus, as long as one is occupied both physically and mentally, there would be little scope for boredom and / or depression.

Beside dealing with your boredom, if you are feeling depressed, you may also want to look into various natural remedies for depression, which include dietary changes, herbal remedies, and alternative therapies.
