Boredom

Grade: 4 | Year: 2015

I will be talking about how boredom is created, how to cure boredom and what boredom is. I will also be talking about how boredom is good and bad for you. Boredom isn't something you can see, smell, taste or hear but is is something that you feel. If you feel sleepy or drowsy you are probably bored. Boredom is the state of being bored. Boredom is created when you lose your attention on something and your brain starts wandering somewhere else. An example is when your teacher is talking about this subject you really don't care about and try to entertain yourself with something .That is boredom. Another example of boredom is when your parent or relative is talking about something you think is really lame and it seems as if the clock is not even moving. That is also boredom. The cure for boredom is really simple. All you have to do is entertain yourself or find something fun to do. But for some people it is really hard to find something to entertain themselves with. If you don't have anything to entertain yourself with,you could do something using your own body like running around or dancing. Imagining or dreaming of something you like would also help to cure boredom. Boredom can also get created by doing the same thing over and over again. You could even get bored of your favorite thing if you do it over and over again. If your favorite thing was a video game that you think is so cool, and you play it so many times you might even get bored of it. But then again you might not get bored of it. Everybody is bored of different things. One person might be bored of an test or quiz but another person might love it and could be their most favorite thing. Boredom is good for you because when you are bored is sort of forces your body to find and explore things, and finding and exploring is one part of creativity. It could lead people to looking or finding interesting bugs on the sidewalk just like Albert Einstein for hours when he was a kid, making a fort out of certain materials, sing a song or make a play about what they like. Boredom helps us explore and pursue what our interest and curiosity leads us. So boredom can actually help in some ways. Except in some ways it doesn't help because experts and researcher say there is a possibility that the more bored you are the more likely to die early. The scientists did a test about it and it turns out people are two and a half times more likely to die from a heart problem than other people if they are really
bored. So boredom can help and harm you in different ways, and this is the end of my speech.
