I find myself bored all the time lately. I’m on my phone constantly refreshing my social media feeds.
My previous hobbies included photography, knitting, crocheting , crossstitching, reading, watching tv shows, running, weightlifting, flexibility exercises, rubik’s cube, shopping, hiking, cooking, fermenting, baking, journaling, houseplants, personal development, tennis, skincare, soap making. These are only the ones that I can remember.
I did each one in various variations for years. But none of them bring me joy or entertainment anymore. I also don’t enjoy the hobbies that introduce physical things/clutter into my life. So I’ve dropped the crafts and now use an e-reader instead of getting physical books. I still have a lot of houseplants and as they keep growing, I don’t have space for more. I’ve gained a good level of proficiency in each hobby before it stopped bringing me joy. Most of these hobbies have been my hobbies for years. I haven’t picked up a new hobby in the last 5 years. It’s been very boring. I feel like I’ve exhausted most of the hobbies a homebody introvert can do.
