What is Bored?
According to the dictionary the meaning of “bored” is “feeling weary because one is unoccupied or lacks interest in one’s current activity” feeling weary is feeling tired or sleepy or lacking energy. Bored may actually be a symptom of lack of motivation or even a symptom of bouts of too much motivation.
Overly motivated people may in-fact feel extremely bored during their down time and may feel that it is a struggle to do basic robotic actions, depression can even set in when highly skillful people have nothing to do.
Don’t Misspell Bored
Often people will misspell the word “bored” and instead use the spelling of the word “board”. Many even think that the meaning of board-games is “games to play when you are bored” but actually the meaning is “games that are played on a board”.
