I do all sorts of things.
I usually read books, listen to music or watch K dramas....
These days I don't easily get bored, coz I've got a lot of things to entertain myself with...
I'm really into dancing these days.....
Though I get bored whenever i start studying......

When I'm bored I usually watch series or read a book, play on my tablet and sometimes do art!
I haven't tried meditation when I went to a Zen monster but I find it hard to do it for a long time!

Hi Nandini,

 

Thanks for letting us know. I've just tested it and it's working fine for me. Are you using Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or another browser? Try using a different browser and see it that works.

 

Can you see the other videos in Video UK and Film UK, or are they not working either?

 

The videos in this section come from YouTube. Do you know if YouTube is blocked in your country?

 

Best wishes,

 

Rachael

I'm using a chrome. The other videos worked just fine and no, YouTube is not blocked in my country. I can't figure out why this video isn't working, but thanks for helping.

When I'm bored , I usually try to distract myself by doing all the simple things every teenager does. But for my opinion some entertaiments can be more than wasting the time.For example , series and films , they can be scientific , history , biographic.A lot of people watch films in foreign languages , that helps them to learn it.The same we can say about books. But I DO agree , thta meditation helps too.Living in modern world sometimes keeps us from paying attention on simple things.My advice is to try, go on your balcon, watch the view , lie on the floor with your dog and enjoy your life.

yelisha don't give up that early! At the beginning I struggle a lot! My mind had always a lot of thoughts and I couldn't concentrate at all. But I continued and now I can meditate for longer sessions. You see: our brain is like a muscle, and as a muscle need train also our brain need it. So I reccomend you try another time because meditate is such a positive habit!
Peace

I keep the boredom away by drawing, painting, and etc, but I do agree that meditation is a perfect way to cure boredom away.

Cool! I try to keep boredom away by reading, especially fantasy: Game of Thrones, Elantris, Diplomat of Uram, Steelheart... Reading is a good way to keep my sanity these days.

I have tried meditation because one of my best friends recommended me, and it makes you feel calm and serene. My friend started meditation with her father, and was kinder ever since. She felt the diference.

Listening to music and painting is what helps me most not to be bored, but I'm also trying to learn new things like learning to cook, etc.

I sometimes feel bored because teachers gived us lots of work because we're not in class.
But, if I feel bored: I imagine storys, read books, paint, draw, and meditation!
It's a good way to feel not bored!!

In the last time I often feel bored because I always stay at home (because of coronavirus) and I can not to have a walk with my friends. So, when I feel bored, I read books, play guitar and meditation (it is really nice, if you have never tried it, do it).

I love reading books, but since we can't go to the library, I have been reading my remaining books. I finished all my books and repeated it over 4 times, literally. The story gets boring after you read it twice. My life has totally become boring.

I watch TV, play computer games or read a book when I'm bored, but I've never tried meditation. I'd like to try it. But it's kinda weird...

Don't worry Andrii, at the beginning it can be kinda weird, but if you are consistent you are going to be way more calm and aware of the present. It's a really good habit, I'm meditating consistently since this May and I can feel the difference! So I reccomend you to give a shot!
Peace

I usually do art when I'm bored, or I read a book. I have tried meditation, and do it sometimes, thanks to my mom. She started meditation when I was about 6, and has calmer and kinder ever since
