It seems that everybody was scammed, or has dealt with e-mail scammers, at least once in his or her lives. Same goes for this anonymous woman, addressed by a Facebook scammer trying to earn some easy money. It turns out he messed with the wrong lady, as her favorite past-time hobby seems to be.   When the worst nights come with children who are ill, distressed, scared or in pain, our hearts can go through so much. We feel bad for our kids or exhausted, heartbroken and scared, or sometimes we don't even have the emotional energy to care.

  3. Need for Novelty. Some individuals are more likely to be bored than others. People with a strong need for novelty, excitement, and variety are at risk of boredom. At the gateway of boredom, should we choose to venture on through, we find a path, which quietly beckons us onward. This pathway leads us into some wonderful things: rest, thinking, problem solving, creativity, joy, prayer, meaning, to name just a few. I first began thinking about this upon reading Cal Newport’s book Deep Work.

  While I certainly appreciate reading good books aloud on the porch swing and playing board games under a shade tree, I don’t have time to be the constant director of activity or playmate for bored children.

If so, there are a wide-range of ideas you can try to relieve your boredom. In fact, you can proactively fill your time with activities that are fun, meaningful, and can strengthen the bonds of the people you share with the important people in your life. That's why in this article, you’ll discover positive things to do to pass the time whenever you feel bored.
