I do not like the work "bored." In the world today, there are so many opportunities to do things that there should be no reason to be bored. It is up to the individual to find ways to entertain himself.
Getting interesting in some particular topic whether it is politics, history, current events, facebook, games, and on and on.... there are so many interesting things in the world to find out about or to take an interest in that being bored is like a dirty word.
I am old  and yet, I can honestly say that I have never been bored. I have had many experiences in life. My interests are varied. I love reading. I love NASCAR. I love crochet. I love working on the computer. I love television. I love animals. I like shopping. I love movies. I could go on and on.
I choose not to be bored. Living by myself, I could allow myself to sit around and do nothing. Never..life is too short, and there are too many wonderful possibilities out there waiting to be tried.
Money is always a problem. Sometimes people use it as an excuse not to do things. There are things to do that does not cost money...
If a young person is bored, t they need to get up and go for a walk with his or her eyes wide open looking for opportunities to do something. Do anything to keep from having the feeling that I have nothing to do. It is not healthy.
It always helps to look for ways that a person can help others. Get involved with a group.
If a person is depressed, may be medication is needed.
Do not allow yourself to be bogged down--fix it!
