Look around you. Can you see how everything is alive? Can you hear how everything is talking to you? Do you think you can listen and hear? Try.
The moment you decide you are bored, you are missing out. Immediately. If you can only notice the world around you, you will realize that everything is constantly moving and flowing, and never stops. And the best part is that you can participate in it.
So what can you do?
Step outside and feel the world. Close your eyes and breathe in. Can you feel how many different scents you just inhaled? Flowers? Tree bark? Earth? Lake? Stardust? Take another breath in and exhale as long as you can. Take the longest breath you’ve had for the whole entire day.
Now open your eyes, and see what you are looking at. Do you see your backyard? Is it taken care of? Does it need some love? Can you give it now? Only a few minutes count to.
Are you seeing a street? Does anybody passes you by? Can you say hello and smile?
What about busy street in the downtown? Can you listen and define every single sound that surrounds you? Instead of listening to them all at once, allow them to come to you, one by one. And acknowledge every single one of them, lovingly. Take a sound bath created by your own city and its sounds.
Are you in a subway? Can you feel the movement of people? Can you think of where are they going to? Can you make up a story for every single one of them? It is a fun game and creates an illusion that everybody is your friend and you know them well. Then in the end, you really do know them well… in your heart.
Are you at home? Can you feel how your home is talking to you? Does it need more space? Less clutter? Or maybe more beautiful accessorize? Does it need more light? Maybe some new curtains? Or a chair renovation? Or door painting? Can you give it some love right now?
Do you see the sky above you? Can you count constellations? Do you think stars have sounds? Can you try and see if there is another Sun there somewhere? Can you think of someone who sees the same stars right at this moment together with you?
Wherever you are, the world is out there and is always waiting for you, right now. Being bored means you forgot that you are alive. You have an endless amount of possibilities of what you can do, right now. In any given moment. Enjoy the colors of leaves, the scent of flowers, how kids are playing, how birds are flying, how Sun is crossing the Sky, accompanied by clouds. Try to feel how you are a part of it all, a small part of something endless and alive. And how you are in a constant dance of this beautiful experience we all call Life.
