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.

Some questions to ponder:

  • 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?
