12 Ways To Escape Boredom

There’s No Reason For Being Bored For Long

There are so many ways to escape boredom.  Personally, I have wayyyy too much on my to do list to ever get bored.  If you are bored, its a blessing or a curse, lol.  (More on that later!)  I have some ideas to help you escape boredom and occupy your free time.

Best part about it, these ways to escape boredom that I will mention below  are fun ways to spend your time but also, useful and could provide some type of benefit to you.  Including generating extra streams of income to overcome boredom!

This post quickly gives you some of the ideas from my book ‘Fun and Affordable Ways to Escape Boredom’.  The motivation behind producing the book and this website was to help you discover……

I run a website for people interested in trucking and truckers at lifeasatrucker.com and couldn’t believe how many people mentioned being bored.  It caused me to research the issue.  Couldn’t believe when I learned that a large portion of the population felt the same way.

Then it hit me……I used to be one of those people who experienced boredom often not too long ago.

Here is my philosophy today though.  Every day should include some movement toward a goal which is in line with the future that you desire.  I used to get bored but something happened to me.  I had a shift in mindset.  First you have to take time to think of what you really want for your life.  What is the lifestyle that you want to be able to live?  What does it look like 20 yrs from now?

(If you don’t go any further or get anything else from this post.  Please read that last paragraph again, think about it and take ownership of it for yourself)

Guess what, if you truly think about that then you can always find things to do that move you closer and closer to making that a reality.  So instead of being bored, you can find fun or beneficial things that are in line with those desires and you will be excited not bored.  That’s it!

But I understand, that is a shift in thinking and for some, it’s a big jump in thinking, depending on your background.  No problem!  That is what this post and the book is actually designed to help you with.   Ideas.

It’s an idea generator, thought provoker and problem solver in one.

Even though, it’s a fun book easy to ready and lighthearted, it’s filled with insights and perspective to make you look at the things that you are doing or could be doing right now to change your future!

If you like the ideas below for ways to escape boredom for smart people you WILL absolutely love this book.  >>>>Ways to Escape Boredom

No offense but Boredom is a choice!  Even if it is a subconscious choice! – Happy Hervy

Real Social Media Jobs

Social Media Management

These are truly amazing times.  People can make money on social media which is something they are already doing for free because they love doing it.  The only difference is that you connect with businesses and service providers and spend some of your online time posting, commenting for them.

Social Media Jobs are becoming more and more common but its like the wild wild west which means there are lots of opportunities everywhere.  Some good and some bad. But there are only a few organized and structured platforms for people like you and businesses to connect.  But you can do what many are doing to get started.

Just walk up (or connect with them online) to them and give them suggestion on how to better their message and reach more people using social media.  Then offer your services to do it for them.  Or you can make a deal with them that you will first increase their traffic and only then will they pay for your continued management of their social media.

You may think that this is something you are not qualified to do because you haven’t had formal training. Two responses for that…..

Getting Started

  1. There is training available for Getting Paid Social Media Jobs
  2. If you have grown your social media organically, then you already really know how to do it.  You just need to think about how you grew your presence.  Apply the same principles to the message that the company needs to convey around their products or services.

But if you will only feel more comfortable getting formal instruction of how to go about it or learning more details about the idea of making money as a social media manager this company is rated one of the best.

Benefits of Being a Social Media Manager

  • Huge potential of clients (businesses) and growing
  • Choose who you want to work with
  • You don’t have to get dressed
  • Don’t have a schedule to adhere to (except the one you devise)
  • You don’t fight traffic every day
  • You don’t spend gas money every day

Here is the beauty of this type of work.  You are still in on the ground floor of an evolution.  A large number of businesses still don’t have a social media presence.  Many who do are not active.  Many who are active are not effective.  These factors means that there is so much room for growth.

The sooner you get started formally, the more of an expert you will be and by the time all businesses recognizes that it is mandatory for them you are in position to earn handsomely and effortlessly with convenience.

Social Media Management work is perfect for …
  • off duty truck driver or trucker wives at home
  • felons who want to work but can’t get hired
  • unemployed or underemployed especially if no jobs in your area
  • people who don’t have transportation
  • if your current schedule won’t allow normal work
  • college students
  • stay at home moms
  • people who don’t like bosses
  • people who don’t like face to face interaction
  • introverts

Many people would find this type of work suitable for them.  There is another level to this I though.  You help so many people accomplish their dreams by helping them get good messages, products and services out there.

What that also means is you easily help friends, family etc promote what they are doing and it doesn’t cost you.  Yet it helps them get ahead!

The reason it would help them so much is it because once you become a master while getting paid, you can donate a few hours what would take them days or weeks of studying and get them results that they would likely never achieve.

lol, but I am jumping ahead.  (Thinking of ways I could use this mastery actually, lol)

Anyway, if you love doing social media, I think think this is something you should look into.  I am doing affiliate marketing with an awesome company called Paid Social Media Jobs who makes it real easy for you to make money on social media.  You can check out their free webinar for more information about how it works here..

I discovered something new about myself with a free personality test

I took the personality test twice…

This personality test only took about 15 minutes to do and the questions were typical of assessments and profiling but simple.  It was fun!  The reading the results and insight based on those results were very interesting and thought provoking.

The video is my second test actually.  All of the photos that you see was from my first test.  I decided to do it again on video for yous guys.

Looks like I am kind of balanced.  Except in the area of assertiveness.  It is a little higher than I expected.  That is the point and the fun part though.  If you honestly answer the questions then the test might reveal characteristics that you were not aware of.

However, if you ask your friends about it, they might confirm it or disagree.  What did mine say?  lol.  I will let you know later.  Stick around my blog.  I haven’t ask enough people yet.

What I like most about this personality test website

The good thing about this site though is that you don’t even have to register or anything and the test is free.  So check it out but subscribe to my blog first as I will be posting about of great websites that I come across!


What smart about the personality test? It actually helps you understand yourself and others better.   A personality test is just one of the ideas I give in the book though.  There are 100’s!

Search the Amazon kindle for the title.
