We’re all guilty of it. We start a new hobby, or we decide to eat healthier, and after the first few weeks our enthusiasm has dwindled. We feel bored with what we are doing because our interest in the activity has waned. It’s time to walk away from that thing you’re not really enjoying anymore! In this blog post I’ll share 8 tips for how to walk away from a boring thing so you can find something more interesting to do instead.
How to Walk Away From a Boring Thing
Tip : the voice top tips from the voice 2015- Tip number one is to make a list of all the things you enjoy doing. Next, write down next to those activities any skills or talents necessary for them (e.g., baking requires cooking skills). This might sound tedious at first but it’s worth your time because once you know what types of activities and abilities interest you, it will be easier for you find new hobbies that suit both your interests and skill sets!
task: add another tip in this blog post about how to walk away from something boring. You can also replace words with synonyms such as “activity” with “hobby.” Do not use spaces between paragraphs unless they are needed not write the number or bullet point.
Tip: think about a time when you were bored and realized it was because you didn’t have anything to do that matched your interests, skills, or both. Think of how much less boredom there would be in your life if all things matched those two categories!

Tip number two is to find the time of day when you are most likely to be engaged in your hobbies. Some people find that they feel more inspired or energized at different times throughout the day and it’s worth experimenting with what works best for you! When I write, my brain tends to work better first thing in the morning, so I’ve set aside a half hour before breakfast each weekday as “writing hours.”
Tip number three is not to just do one hobby mix up activities for maximum fun factor (e.g., try painting on Saturday mornings followed by working out later that afternoon). This way if something becomes boring after a while, there will always be another activity waiting right around the corner!
Tip number four is to make sure your hobbies are in the right place. Some people find that they work better at a desk, others do their best work in the kitchen or out on the porch find what works for you!
Tip number five is to set aside time as an “artist’s hour” each day (or weekend). This means not checking e-mail, social media, texts etc., and intentionally focusing on one thing only (e.g., painting) without interruption from other things.
Tip number six: allow yourself some leeway with how much of your life revolves around your hobby(s), but also be mindful about where that balance falls so it doesn’t feel like too much pressure or take over everything else.
I was really excited to hear the voice top eight on the radio this weekend, and I have a few simple tips for how you can make time for your hobbies.
Tip number one is that it’s important not to let other things take over don’t say “yes” when you want to be doing something else or don’t carve out enough time in advance so that suddenly this thing has ballooned into an all-consuming task! It might feel like occasionally saying no here and there will get in the way of success but ultimately it’ll pay off as we create space for our own lives.
Tip two: try setting aside some specific days throughout the week where you know your schedule will allow us to focus completely on your hobby. I like to have days set aside for yoga, the voice top eight on the radio, and reading.
Tip three: cultivate a routine so that we can make time for our hobbies while still keeping up with other parts of life maybe you’re cooking dinner or doing laundry while also practicing your hobby! Routine is important because it helps us stay in a proactive mode instead of feeling overwhelmed by what’s next.
Tip four: try not to compare ourselves to others; as long as we’ve carved out some space (even if it’s just five minutes!) then things are going well. The key here is consistency whatever number seems daunting at first will soon feel manageable when approached one day at a time.”
Tip one: the first step to carving out space for a hobby is making time in our schedules. This might sound daunting, but it’s easier than you think!
Tip two: get organized with calendars and lists both digital or analog. To-do list apps like Wunderlist make this easy by letting us share tasks across platforms (phone app vs desktop). Paper planners are also helpful because we can visualize how the coming weeks will look on the calendar as well as plan ahead for what needs to be done each day.”
