What is Boredom?

Boredom represents a negative experience commonly arising in situations deemed deficient in meaning, interest, and challenge and is thought to motivate us to remediate these deficiencies by modifying behaviors or situations.

Boredom can also be defined as a state of body and mind where we find no energy and interest to do what we are doing. When bored, the brain can not concentrate, and we feel sleepy due to low energy. Prolonged boredom results in depression. Sustained boredom is a sustained low energy and interest state. Because this particular mental state is essentially a negative energy state, if we get bored often, then we may get into a chain of negative thoughts, which would cause sadness. Boredom is the principal reason behind a “sad, boring life” that many complain.

 

Why do we get bored?

There are two particular reasons for getting bored easily:-

i) External factors.

ii) Internal Factors.

i) External Factors

  • Working into something which we are not passionate about.
  • Being surrounded by other boring and depressed people.
  • Working on something for a very long period without desired results, and therefore losing interest in what we are doing.
  • Stress in the relationship, and therefore feeling lonely.

There may be many other such reasons. External boredom means feeling bored due to external objects such as people, professions, environment, geopolitical scenarios, economics, etc.

ii) Internal Factors

Internal factor is one’s psychology about the self and about the world. If one has low self-esteem, one will find very few things to get excited about as one is not excited about himself/herself. In such cases, one would constantly need external stimuli to feel excited. Because of the inherent disliking about the self, one would get bored quickly by anything and will not be able to stick to that for long enough to rip the benefit.

Why Boredom Test?

This test helps you to become aware of the following aspects of your life:-

  1. Your ability to set and pursue long-term goals.
  2. Your inherent mental health(as mental health is directly correlated to the ability to do repetitive tasks for long enough without getting bored)
  3. Your risk of current or future depression.
  4. Your risk of attracting negative and depressed people in your life.
  5. Your ability to take the stress and pressure necessary to get the results you are looking for.
  6. Boredom can also measure fatigue and slow metabolism, which can lead to acidity and other metabolic disorders.
  7. Boredom may lead to worry. The sustained worry with underneath boredom may lead to liver abnormalities.
  8. Irritation and frustration arising from boredom may turn one extremely negative, and risks of aggression and anxiety increase.

Therefore this test can be a good measure of your overall mental and metabolic well-being.

Benefits for the Clinicians

Boredom is not a clinical condition but rather underneath causation for several mental health disorders. In ICD-10, “feeling of emptiness” is listed with code F60.3. The feeling of emptiness and boredom are cross-correlated, and this test can measure F60.3. However, please note that the Boredom test can not be used to diagnose an Unstable Emotional Personality due to feelings of Emptiness(F60.3) With this test.

  1. Interventional cardiologists can advise patients with high calcium index to find out the root cause, and based on the boredom score; they may adjust the lifestyle suggestion.
  2. Interventional cardiologists may also suggest this test to patients with high anxiety to assess the root cause of anxiety.
  3. (Boredom is underneath comorbidity in heart failure). Cardiologists treating heart failure patients may ask their patients to take monthly tests to index the improvement of their metabolic rate to reduce the heart failure risk.
  4. PCOS and PCOD are directly correlated to Boredom. Gynecologists are suggested to offer this free online self-assessment to their patients to evaluate slow metabolism.
  5. All above may work in a team with a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist to help the patients to improve their enthusiasm for life.

Benefits for the Individual

Self-improvement starts with a better understanding of the self. Anything that you can not measure, you can not improve. The world starts with us; whatever we achieve or get out of our lives depends on us. We often end up blaming others for our misery. If we have an internal trait of getting bored, then life will always pull us back to where we stand now. Everyone makes their own choices in life. You can’t influence others’ choices, but you can certainly fix your choices. As we improve, we attract better people, so our life improves automatically.

About BPS Scale

This scale was developed by Farmer and Sundberg1Farmer R, Sundberg ND. Boredom proneness–the development and correlates of a new scale. J Pers Assess. 1986 Spring;50(1):4-17. doi: 10.1207/s15327752jpa5001_2. PMID: 3723312..

(Metabolic Risk and Cardiovascular Autonomic Neuropathy Risk will be added to the scale shortly).

What is the objective of taking a self-screening mental health test online?

We know about cars and stars more than we know ourselves. From childhood, people mostly ask us, "what do you want to become," or "what do you do?" but rarely anyone has ever wanted to know who we are. We know very little about ourselves, which is why when we struggle with life and relationships, we do not get the results we expect even after hard work; when people cheat us or betray us, we blame others or our destiny.

  • We must always continue to know ourselves.
  • The more we know about ourselves, the better we will be able to interact with the world.
  • Without knowing our limitations in both qualitative as well as quantitative ways, we can not improve.
  • If we do not improve and grow in life, we will always shrink and become ill.
  • It is often uncomfortable to discuss our real thoughts, feelings, and insecurities, even with psychologists; we are often unaware of our actual thinking.
  • Because our thoughts, feelings, and situations in life change all the time, if you take this test ten times, every time, you may get different results.
  • Therefore a self-assessment and screening test is a great way to know yourself and know if there are any problems at the early stage so that you can use the Lyfas recommendation therapeutics to start improving.
  • If you keep thinking about a problem and illness, you will always remain ill; however, if you start knowing yourself, you will start growing; once you grow in life, make Lyfas part of your growth journey.
