We found an interesting article today. It looked at why South African students found their history, especially apartheid, ‘boring’. Researcher Teeger suggests this ‘boredom’ might be a way to avoid tough emotions.

- Is boredom just a feeling or a way to avoid deep thoughts?
- Do we sometimes use boredom to hide from truths?
- Can we turn boredom into something positive?
