I Am Always Bored. Why Do You Think This Might Be? How Do You Entertain Yourself?

You ask a question that I have heard a lot. To be honest, being bored is a confusing concept to me. Maybe us dogs are easily entertained compared to humans. When I am bored I will lay on my bed and listen to sessions, walk around the office, bark until I am taken outside for a walk, play with my toys, eat treats, and take a nap when I am exhausted. I can understand how an event is boring, such as when someone is speaking to us and what they have to share is not very entertaining. We could define this conversation as boring. The way you phrase the question makes me assume you are continually bored and don’t know how to entertain yourself. I would encourage you to find hobbies, socialize, or find something productive to do. One of my favorite things to do is socialize. I will sit next to someone in hopes they will pet me or talk to me. Those are just a few things I do to keep myself entertained. If you find yourself continually bored it sounds as if you have free time on your hands. You can use that time to meet with a therapist to process why you might be bored.
