Distraction doesn't make you un-bored; it simply disguises the boredom for a time. That won't do. No, rather, being engaged is where it's at. Fun and creativity and adventures, and perhaps the occasional silliness or craziness. If things are not-so-good lately, perhaps it's because things are boring? Could you do anything to make things less boring? Hmm?
Saw a great quote about this recently:
"If you're bored with life - you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don't have enough goals."
- Lou Holtz
I think it was Tim Ferriss who said that the opposite of happiness isn't sadness, it's boredom. So to find happiness, look for excitement.
After having some pretty epic adventures all around the world I would like to add one thing though: adventures and excitement alone don't necessarily lead to fulfillment. You have to create a mission for yourself. A higher purpose + adventure = true excitement.
