Stress or boredom? You can’t have both. But each offers its own valuable lesson.
Boredom triggers you to try something new. It’s the reason people find new jobs or new hobbies or new apps.
Stress triggers you to seek certainty. It wants you to scratch the itch off the unknown.
Boredom and stress can both backfire of course. Accepting boredom risks complacency. Excess stress leaves you paralyzed and hurts your heart. But nothing is worse than stressing out because you’re bored.
Go for a walk. Cook. Do something. Move something.
