My life bores me. What do I do?

Do you find that nothing is interesting or fun for you anymore? Is it hard to get excited about anything?

First, it’s important to know WHY you are feeling this way. If you’re not sure about this, try to make a list of 3 things that excite you and make you happy. It could be anything from listening to music, to spending time with your favourite people, to showing off your skills at something.

If you can find 3 things, you might just need to find a way to do them. Is anyone you know doing these things? If your friends aren’t, try to think of a new way to get involved. As long as the activities are safe and legal, try to find people who have the same interests as you, and see if you can join them.

If you can’t think of anything that makes you happy or excited, and if you are also feeling sad, angry or numb (feeling nothing) a lot of the time, this may be a sign that something is not OK in your life. We all need a sense of purpose and goals to work towards. Check our article “Feeling sad all the time? You could be depressed”, and speak to a trusted adult to get help.
