One of the most useful skills that you can develop is being comfortable sitting with your boredom. When we’re uncomfortable with this feeling we can end up doing things that we’ll later come to regret. For example eating when we know that we really shouldn’t be. If you’ve been really struggling with the goal of fat loss, try focusing on being comfortable with boredom; it will probably do more for you than any complicated diet plan ever could.
This goes beyond just overeating and emotional eating. I’m sure that many of us, myself included, have made some questionable purchases just because we were feeling bored and wanted that quick hit of excitement. Anything to distract us for a few moments from our boredom.
