How do you overcome boredom?

IMAGERY IS MY MOST EFFECTIVE TOOL. I ENVISION SCRAPBOOK PAGES IN MY MIND, WRITE EMAILS & JOURNAL ENTERIES (THOUGH SOME ARE NEVER WRITTEN), TRY TO RECALL THINGS I HAVE MADE (LIKE THE POWERPOINT FOR A CHURCH YOUNG WOMAN LESSON, SO I CAN PONDER/MEMORIZE).

I ALSO DO A LOT OF PRAYING & PONDERING. & I LOVE THERAPIES THAT I CAN DO ALONE, LIKE TRACKING W/MY EYES, EXERCISES TO STRENGTHEN MY ARM, VOCALIZING, & IF I CAN ACCESS IT, PRACTICING MY WRITING ON MY BOOGIE BOARD FROM BROOKSTONE!

BUT I’M OFTEN SO BUSY MOST DAYS THAT I DON’T HAVE TIME TO BE BORED! IT TOOK ME ALMOST 8 YEARS POST-STROKE B4 I FELT BORED, & WHEN I FELT BOREDOM, IT WAS NOT BECUZ OF MY SITUATION, OR THAT I LACKED THINGS 2 DO, BUT BECAUSE I DIDN’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING THAT I WAS SUPPOSED 2 DO! THE BOREDOM I FELT COULD HAVE HAPPENED 2 ANY1!
