What is boredom and what causes it?
(How) can boredom be overcome?
Is boredom an issue that occupational therapists should address?
You guessed it: the topic for this week’s #occhat is Boredom – join us on Tuesday 7th May at 8pm BST (click link for your local time). We want to hear from you if you’ve ever experienced boredom (or even if you haven’t).
If this is your first Twitter chat, you may find this guide to tweetchats useful.
In preparation for the chat, you may wish to reflect on your own experience of boredom (whether personally or professionally) and any strategies you have used to address it.
I (@clissa89) have written a blog post based on an interesting article I read in a recent issue of the Journal of Occupational Science. You may also want to revisit our #occhat about mindfulness and occupation.
Finally, check out our #OTalk/#Occhat and Your CPD page for a suggestion of how to document your preparation for/participation in the chat as evidence of continuing professional development.
We look forward to chatting with you soon!
