#occhat Grabchat – Boredom (7th May 2013)

Thank you to everyone who participated in last night’s (un-boring) chat!

I’d like to add a quote that someone posted in the ‘Mindfulness’ Facebook group in response to my blog post:

 

The Other Side of Boredom

When you are really bored, the best thing you can do is sit down and let yourself experience the boredom more fully. It may not be a deep or satisfying state, but at least you are not indulging in the things with which you usually cover up this kind of experience. Your real state of mind is more nakedly exposed, because for the time being there are no distractions. If you can stay with the experience of boredom, you can try to feel your way through into something deeper, truer, and more spontaneous within yourself.

– Sangharakshita, “Staying with Boredom”

@BillWongOT @clissa89 that end of party is probably as anti-thesis for today’s topic. 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:01:31 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @clissa89 hii! #otuesday so far so good, final VIVAs issued today so been working on that today. Hows your day? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:01:56 +0100)

@BillWongOT @clissa89 Bored a lot of times- too much time in solitude in my liking. 😦 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:05:18 +0100)
@clissa89 For those of you who have experienced boredom – what has your experience been like? When was the last time you felt bored? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:05:47 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat RT @clissa89 : Out of curiosity… has anyone here never experienced boredom? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:06:02 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT so you are more likely to feel bored if you are alone? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:06:54 +0100)
@clissa89 @CharOTReilly thank you 🙂 that sounds like a really interesting case study! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:07 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk Very rarely bored, too much to do! When I am bored I think I feel frustrated.
#occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:07 +0100)
@BPDFFS @clissa89 yes all the time #occhat it’s a bad place to be for me, I need to keep busy to distract(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:08 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @clissa89 bored in traffic on my way home from the library this afternoon #veryboring , #lackofstimulation #lackofmeaningfulness #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:18 +0100)
@pd2ot Hello #occhat -ers, sorry I’m late – I was at a lovely BBQ :-)(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:28 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 yes… because there were times I wish I have a girlfriend in my life. It’d have been more fulfilling #lifeasasingleguy #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:45 +0100)
@kirstyes #occhat I’m not entirely sure what boredom is but yet I’ve said I feel bored. Usually means I have too much to do but don’t want doany of it(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:55 +0100)
@clissa89 @BPDFFS what kinds of situations do you feel bored in? I do that too – keep busy! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:04 +0100)
@BillWongOT RT @robbrooks_uk : Very rarely bored, too much to do! When I am bored I think I feel frustrated.
#occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:09 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 @BillWongOT I do not think I have every experienced boredom when alone. Possibly when doing tedious task? But not sure??? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:13 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot we’re honoured that you came in for us! 🙂 glad you had a nice BBQ. What situations do you feel bored in? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:31 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk @clissa89 I wonder if you have experienced a boring lecturer in your uni days? That also counts, right? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:53 +0100)
@CharOTReilly RT @kirstyes : #occhat I’m not entirely sure what boredom is but yet I’ve said I feel bored. Usually means I have too much to do but don’t want doany of it(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:16 +0100)
@clissa89 @robbrooks_uk I’m the same – often too busy to feel bored! But definitely makes me frustrated when I am #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:16 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @robbrooks_uk #occhat similar but when I’m bored I think I’m more likely overwhelmed then I can’t be bothered to engage.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:33 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk I get bored when doing house work – not stimulating enough. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:45 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes someone mentioned this to me earlier – thought that boredom was maybe around some sort of avoidance? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:47 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 for me I get bored within occupations that don’t challenge me enough. While I always keep busy I still get bored… #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:25 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT @helen_otuk oh yes! (sorry lecturers) my most common boredom-inducing situation: lectures etc where I can’t leave #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:25 +0100)
@darthknitty #occhat I’ve been bored recently as stuck in bed with a bad back. Couldn’t sit up to knit 😦 @clissa89 (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:29 +0100)
@BillWongOT When I have a boring lecturer, I sometimes will go online and multi-task. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:39 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Yes, maybe, often accompanied by guilt #occhat -Need to just do what I want in those situations.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:59 +0100)
@Helen_otuk ok, how do we define boredom? I can get bored of doing a specific tedious task… but I then tend to utilise time to ponder stuff #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:03 +0100)
@clissa89 @Nnikki_Duffy can you expand on the overwhelmed point? what makes you overwhelmed? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:05 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @robbrooks_uk i agree, seems to be a link between #boredom and #lackofstimulation #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:09 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 I got bored during 1st year at uni. I’m now bored with salsa. It’s a bit exhausting always having to keep the interest up! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:13 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @kirstyes that will be the case if I find a uni topic disengaging. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:18 +0100)
@BPDFFS @clissa89 lots of situations like today in a meeting I lose interest very quickly, I need constant mental stimulation or I get bored #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:43 +0100)
@clissa89 @darthknitty that must have been awful 😦 I get bored too when ill/resting!! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:59 +0100)
@pd2ot @BPDFFS can definitely relate to that #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT I admit I did this too 😦 I withdraw if I’m bored – sometimes into a task or sometimes somewhere in my head #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @Helen_otuk As now being on “the other side of the fence” as guest lecturer, if I don’t hear laughters, I know I’m boring. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:35 +0100)
@kirstyes @Helen_otuk @clissa89 @BillWongOT Yes so etching about lack of challenge, or too much challenge? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:35 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 keeping engaged for me, does require a lot of energy and interest, can be challenging #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:46 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot do you get bored after a period of time elapses and then need a change? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:13:07 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk Is boredom a form of occupational deprivation? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:13:32 +0100)
@clissa89 @BPDFFS oh yes meetings….. Yawn!! 😦 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:13:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 yes… actually that’s why I made some tweets in my OTD classes this year (honestly admitting the truth). #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:13:36 +0100)
@sophiewearing I tend to find I’m bored when I’m under stimulated,if something isn’t pitched at the right level,or its the wrong activity @clissa89 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:07 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @clissa89 #occhat to much stuff to do, then I can shut down a little.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:08 +0100)
@clissa89 @robbrooks_uk well that’s a whole debate in itself! what do you think? (and everyone else?) #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:12 +0100)
@GillyGorry @clissa89 yes.. Mainly due to feeling restricted by other things and having nothing to do. Not for a long time though #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:35 +0100)
@clissa89 I felt really guilty in lectures – and sorry for lecturers – when I disengaged from the session #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:49 +0100)
@pd2ot @CharOTReilly yep, I s’times find mindfulness helps me tolerate the lower energy/interest stuff -possibly could invest more in that #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:50 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @kirstyes yes think so, I can get bored of a task but if I utilise time to ponder or think things through then not bored? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:50 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat Good evening @michael_iwama , great to have you at #occhat @clissa89 (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:51 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @clissa89 #occhat I think the word ‘boredom’ can be interpreted different depending on ur experience of it.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 But that’s why I LOVE being able to tweet as I attend OT conferences nowadays- less boredom! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:06 +0100)
@claireOT Hello #occhat ! Just turning up to say that I find recovery/existence with chronic illness can be boring… #sensorysensitivity (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:08 +0100)
@clissa89 @GillyGorry what kinds of things restrict? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:20 +0100)
@Keeper85 #occhat omg hello I actually got up early enough!!(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:20 +0100)
@sophiewearing So when barriers get in the way of engagement? @darthknitty @clissa89 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:24 +0100)
@clissa89 @Nnikki_Duffy I agree – we probably have different experiences and definitions of boredom! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:36 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk @sophiewearing I agree that when the task demands do not meet my needs I can get bored #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:49 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot I’m really interested in this idea – spotted in http://t.co/5BwctRcXxY #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:04 +0100)
@claireOT Not being able to read, or write, or even watch TV when I’m at my worst means it’s hard to relieve boredom #sensorysensitivity #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:06 +0100)
@pd2ot @BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @clissa89 #occhat Good point, I’ve yet to experience that. I’m fine with lectures I really enjoy though(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:10 +0100)
@BillWongOT @robbrooks_uk good question. I think in a sense it is. I don’t go out much cuz there r some sports that r boring when engaged alone. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:24 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @CharOTreilly I’m often very un-mindful (and irritated!!) when bored 😦 need to work on this. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @Keeper85 wow that’s impressive!! which situations do you get bored in? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:47 +0100)
@GillyGorry @BillWongOT I always tried to sit near the front to keep focus. Can be hard though #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:51 +0100)
@claireOT Talking to ppl, going out, crafting, even listening to music can all be too much #sensorysensitivity #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:00 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @BillWongOT @pd2ot @clissa89 yes a great perk of #socialmedia #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:05 +0100)
@clissa89 RT @robbrooks_uk : Is boredom a form of occupational deprivation? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:08 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 that’s it. I notice I go through cycles of interest in things #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:15 +0100)
@Keeper85 #occhat I usually look at boredom from a sensory needs perspective and try and adjust accordingly(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:23 +0100)
@BillWongOT @GillyGorry I sit at the back- that way people won’t notice as much. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:26 +0100)
@clissa89 Has everyone seen my blog post on boredom? http://t.co/wLwORX1QlL has some different theories #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:50 +0100)
@claireOT If anyone has any good ways to relieve boredom that can be done in a quiet, dark room, I’m looking for tips! #sensorysensitivity #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:04 +0100)
@GillyGorry @clissa89 when I didn’t feel like I had control to do things I wanted. Or something prevented #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:09 +0100)
@clissa89 @Keeper85 can you give an example from your own life? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:10 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @robbrooks_uk @sophiewearing #occhat yet sometimes u can find urself completely engaged in a very simple task.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:14 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @clissa89 @pd2ot yea I would agree, boredom for me can turn to irritation and a bad mood. #occhat need to be more mindful #oftenwhenalone (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:19 +0100)

@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 too bad I don’t attend many talks- too many poster sessions! Hard to tweet when I’ve to move and see. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:58 +0100)
@clissa89 @Nnikki_Duffy @robbrooks_uk @sophiewearing interesting point – so what’s the difference? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:19:00 +0100)
@CharOTReilly thats fab, @Keeper85 you are addressing your own OT needs! #occhat do you have an example?(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:19:16 +0100)

@clissa89 If I’m bored & can’t leave/change the task (e.g. when in a lecture) – I think the irritation shows on my face! 😦 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:20:01 +0100)

@Keeper85 #occhat I start a job, get to learn it, start some quality improvement, finish that, get bored. I love change, keeps me pumped(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:20:16 +0100)
@BillWongOT @claireOT tried to be aware of that on Pinterest, but haven’t seen any good ones. 😦 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:20:23 +0100)

@BillWongOT @francescaabrown I agree- I see that in myself since I started OT school- from having my own laptop, to now my own iPhone. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:36:15 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot good point – even occupations that aren’t seen as health-promoting can serve a purpose/be meaningful? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:36:34 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 absolutely (character limit prevented profound statement about being busy not meaning we weren’t bored/dissatisfied) #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:36:45 +0100)
@clissa89 @claireOT @michael_iwama hello michael! 🙂 is your account protected? I’ve not seen any tweets #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:02 +0100)
@Keeper85 @kirstyes I don’t know if that’s possible haha…maybe u need a Harry Potter broom mop?? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:04 +0100)
@Tchamp13 @clissa89 #occhat I tend to keep busy one way or another; lots of projects, writing, read, family time….(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:05 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 @pd2ot Yes i could have been bored, but seeking alternate methods to suggest made me think and also evidence my feedback #Occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:12 +0100)
@clissa89 @sophiewearing @keeper85 @BillWongOT I think this is a really important point #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:29 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 Definitely. And self-defeating occs provided me with interest and challenge (among other things) #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:40 +0100)
@BillWongOT @sophiewearing @Keeper85 @clissa89 turn on “do not disturb” option on my iPhone if I’m in a situation I can’t multitask #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:47 +0100)
@Keeper85 #occhat I think tech feeds our need for instant gratification which probably had evolved us into getting bored more quickly(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:06 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @clissa89 I make people do this as an example of what it might be like sitting in a care home. Staff find it really difficult. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:06 +0100)
@kirstyes @Keeper85 Oooh that would probably work for me #occhat (At least one time).(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:20 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 @Helen_otuk Ah yes, can relate to Clarissa’s experience – might try yours next time Helen! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:20 +0100)
@clissa89 Should occupational therapists address boredom? Do you? #occupationaltherapy #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:36 +0100)
@sophiewearing @clissa89 @Keeper85 @BillWongOT agreed.Especially to understand our clients and their boredom/reducing boredom. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:38 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 feeling challenged for me helps to maintain attention and decrease boredom #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:41 +0100)
@pocketot Twiddling thumbs and serial opposition tasks would deal w/ fm coordination AND boredom! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:58 +0100)
@clissa89 @Keeper85 this is certainly true for me. though before tech think I probably used other strategies! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:10 +0100)
@BillWongOT @sophiewearing @clissa89 @Keeper85 but if we are not good examples, how can we expect our clients to follow? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:21 +0100)
@pd2ot @Keeper85 Definitely. I find it hard to ‘just watch TV’ without simultaneously engaging in SM. Again, I feel I could be more mindful #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:27 +0100)
@claireOT ? @Minervabythesea : Instead of telling myself “I am bored” thinking “what shall I do now?” & doing what comes to mind works for me.? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:31 +0100)
@clissa89 @Nnikki_Duffy it can be really difficult. I’ve experienced this a few times recently – interesting how different people respond #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:40 +0100)
@Tchamp13 RT @claireOT : I dealt with occupational deprivation and boredom in my parenting with a disability presentation for #24OTvx #occhat http://t.co/7mUy8qXiBC (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:47 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @clissa89 if its is impacting an individuals engagement in their meaningful occupations or health/wellbeing yes!! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:57 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 as long as it is a “just right challenge”, IMO. Too challenging sometimes can mean disengagement. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:57 +0100)
@claireOT ? @robbrooks_uk : @claireOT @pluminmouth maybe fast technology makes us bored?

@BillWongOT @pd2ot @Keeper85 for me that will be turning on music while engaging in SM. doing that now! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:40:38 +0100)

@clissa89 @robbrooks_uk can you elaborate? why? how? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:41:10 +0100)
@GillyGorry @clissa89 @keeper85 I think boredom is more than being uninterested.. Hard to explain. But I feel like I have experienced both #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:41:12 +0100)

@pd2ot @clissa89 Yes, so long as it links to dissatisfaction with occupations engaged in. Linking to building structure.routines #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:41:21 +0100)
@pd2ot @BillWongOT very valid point #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:41:39 +0100)

@claireOT For @charl885 and other new Tweeters, here you go, my How to Twitter post #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:42:44 +0100)
@Keeper85 @GillyGorry @clissa89 I think from an occ science veiw (depending on ur definition of both) they would probably be viewed similarly #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:42:58 +0100)
@clissa89 @GillyGorry I agree that there is a distinction – just difficult to unpick! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:42:59 +0100)
@clissa89 @robbrooks_uk I would argue yes. e.g. when boredom leads to anti-social/”unhealthy” occupations #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:33 +0100)
@sophiewearing Im so bad at it!automatically going2my phone if sat somewhere waiting.need to use my mindfulness more in such situs #occhat @francescaabrown (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:33 +0100)
@Minervabythesea When you have space in your mind, it can be used for so many creative things but it can take time to ‘tune in’ so allow that time #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:38 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @pd2ot @clissa89 yes I have to have the alternate thoughts. Make recommendations etc therefore not over focussed on the boring stuff #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:46 +0100)
@Keeper85 @clissa89 I think we address it when lookin into occupations that are valued and important to the client….so indirectly yea #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:55 +0100)
@claireOT I’m just thinking about Maslow’s hierarchy, and how boredom might indicate barriers to advancing up it. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:44:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @claireOT I’m liking your thinking…. care to share any more? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:44:50 +0100)
@GillyGorry @kirstyes @robbrooks_uk maybe deprived of meaningful stuff…. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:44:52 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @robbrooks_uk yes… I believe that’s why some youths might lock themselves in their rooms and play Internet games 1/2 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:44:58 +0100)
@sophiewearing Agree,I think u can be interested in a task but bored still. @GillyGorry @clissa89 @Keeper85 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:11 +0100)
@claireOT I wrote about Maslow’s hierarchy in social media use last year, might be interesting if you’re wondering what SoMe can do #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:16 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @robbrooks_uk and the youths I am talking about are those who eat, breathe, and sleep with these games. 2/2 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:19 +0100)
@Keeper85 @robbrooks_uk @clissa89 I sense an interesting conf presentation there 😉 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:21 +0100)
@Dai2584 I quite like doing nothing.why do we need to be doing someting all the time #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:31 +0100)
@pd2ot I’m going to slope off early #occhat ers. Great chat – thanks all – I look forward to catching up on the end :)(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:42 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT @robbrooks_uk if I was ever really bored & had a lot of time to kill – The Sims worked wonders! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:48 +0100)
@Tchamp13 RT @claireOT : @AishaJemima yes, daydreaming, meditating and mindful breathing can be really helpful #occhat #sensorysensitivity (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:52 +0100)
@GillyGorry @Keeper85 @clissa89 yeah. I think it is also a subjective experience. One mans boredom in another mans disinterest #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:18 +0100)
@kirstyes #occhat It seems like there’s some challenge with identifying exactly what boredom is.I’m going to try and monitor when I feel ‘bored’ &why(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @Dai2584 this is a really interesting point. Recently explored “being” more and “doing” less #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:20 +0100)
@claireOT . @clissa89 I’m wondering if boredom might operate as a mechanism to drive us forward, to explore alternative ways to meet our needs #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:34 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot thanks for joining us – you’ve made some really interesting points that need further pondering on my part! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:35 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk @Dai2584 Is doing nothing the same as being bored? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:40 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes it is a challenge – I struggled to even find a comprehensive definition! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:01 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Good question? Not as primary cause, but as a result maybe? d MT @robbrooks_uk : Can you die from boredom? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:13 +0100)
@Keeper85 @GillyGorry @clissa89 everything in OT should be subjective. That’s the nature f working with people #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:34 +0100)
@clissa89 @claireOT I’m sure there’s some research on this – boredom as motivator (cited in the Martin et al article) #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:40 +0100)
@kirstyes @GillyGorry @robbrooks_uk I don’t know. I can still get bored even when I have meaningful stuff to do. When I don’t have energy #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:44 +0100)
@Tchamp13 #occhat lifestyles r so packed full and fast paced… Contributes to constant hyperarousal/neuro threshold changes(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:50 +0100)
@claireOT @quirkygrump absolutely, but maybe it’s a mechanism to drive us to seek alternative routes to self-actualisation? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:51 +0100)
@claireOT ? @quirkygrump : @claireOT like being under occupied and without purpose & meaning? not the route to self-actualisation me thinks? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:48:01 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @robbrooks_uk @Dai2584 I do not think so, I often am not ‘doing’ physically. But mental stimulation prevents boredom maybe? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:48:12 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk @Helen_otuk totally agree #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:48:20 +0100)

@Helen_otuk @Keeper85 agree also the importance of doing nothing! I try to make time to ‘do nothing’ just to switch off or down at least. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:56:43 +0100)

@GillyGorry @Keeper85 @nnikki_duffy @kirstyes deficit in doing something I want.. Doesn’t mean the things I do already don’t have meaning.. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 21:58:10 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk @GillyGorry Busy but still bored would suggest a lack of meaning, monotony or skill/demand mismatch #occhAT (Tue, 07 May 2013 22:10:31 +0100)

@GillyGorry @Keeper85 @nnikki_duffy @kirstyes maybe. Or maybe just that my occupational choices were restricted #occhat choice carries huge meaning 4 me(Tue, 07 May 2013 22:21:11 +0100)

@BillWongOT @CMiller_OTs I am also a part of #OTalk / #Occhat (even though it’s based in UK). This week’s topic for #occhat is on boredom. Check it out.(Wed, 08 May 2013 00:07:47 +0100)
@Thoodles @clissa89 @kirstyes I’ve been bored even if i didn’t have things I needed to do, but could do. For me boredom reduced motivation. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:22:12 +0100)
@Thoodles Boredom can lead to reduced motivation of doing things that I normally would enjoy doing. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:23:11 +0100)
@Thoodles @clissa89 i usually try to get inspired or look for things that could get me going, even if it means procrastination. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:24:34 +0100)
@BillWongOT RT @Thoodles : Boredom can lead to reduced motivation of doing things that I normally would enjoy doing. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:25:22 +0100)
@Thoodles Would things like being tired lead to boredom, due to the reduced motivation to engage in occupation? #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:26:40 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Thoodles @clissa89 As a pianist, I sometimes I get motivated if I listen to a piano piece that represents a just right challenge. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:27:17 +0100)
@Thoodles So maybe if you’re bored, take a nap. If you wake up feeling refreshed you can get back on task. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:27:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Thoodles I brought up a question about burnout and boredom earlier. So, I think that can be a factor. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:28:02 +0100)
@Thoodles @BillWongOT @clissa89 that is exactly what I’m talking about. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:28:43 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Thoodles @clissa89 In learning such a piece (particularly complex ones), it’s more of a process than procrastination. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:29:54 +0100)

@clissa89 #occhat RT @DebLants : @claireOT @clissa89 i agree with this. When you’re bored you look into other things to keep you occupied(Wed, 08 May 2013 13:01:36 +0100)
@roberTO_OT Boredom to me is lack of productive doing. Big issue w/unemployed! Espec. in my research. Disability also plays a role – wanting2do! #Occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 14:07:01 +0100)
@roberTO_OT @Keeper85 #Occhat Boredom doesn’t necessarily have to relate to occupation. Therefore, productivity as opposed to meaning is more salient(Wed, 08 May 2013 14:20:52 +0100)

@orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @dawnyford but it’s also difficult if you’re in a bit of a reading rut. I always ask for recommendations #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:38:25 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford that’s why I think a book club is not a bad idea. All my book club friends are non-OT’s. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:39:05 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala #occhat however new technology can also be a barrier rather then an enabler.(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:39:14 +0100)
@BillWongOT @dawnyford @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy I think there are some values of having a book. It provides meaning that u owned something #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:40:26 +0100)
@BillWongOT @dawnyford @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy though I would say it wouldn’t be good to follow my grandpa’s footsteps, though… lol! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:40:54 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala yes- I bet neither my mom nor my dad would ever use Kindle #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:41:38 +0100)
@dawnyford @orlalalalala @nnikki_duffy @BillWongOT Kindles r cool & very handy but r they as therapeutic as holding a good book in your hands? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:42:31 +0100)
@orlalalalala #occhat i work with young people, a few of my clients like to read people’s experiences of MH difficulties in fiction/non-fiction #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:43:22 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @orlalalalala to be honest I prefer a book and wish I could set the back ground colour better. #occhat #dyslexia (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:43:25 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala yes that can be a great tool. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:44:36 +0100)

@dawnyford #occhat new tech does seem to be a barrier with older peeps. There r more ‘silver surfers’ out there now so phaps that will change!(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:44:53 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala Back in my #OT students days, I read some accounts from Schizophrenia Bulletin from way back. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:45:06 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala I suppose we all do that now and again, read to relate / understand a persons journey, or gain insight. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:46:17 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala I agree- I read a lot of autism self accounts for my own pleasure & my doctorate residency. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:48:35 +0100)
@orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT The Center Cannot Hold by Elyn Saks is really fascinating #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:49:09 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 Hiya, just got in. @Nnikki_Duffy Reading is also good to escape into another world #occhat #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:49:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy A pretty popular #autism non-fiction book is Look Me In The Eye #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:50:20 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy I suppose as OTs we need to recognise that when some1 says reading is an interest what part of reading is meaningful to them #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:51:49 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat reading can be social, work, relaxation, emotional. So given that if a person puts reading as an interest what would u ask? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:53:44 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy good question- probably will start off with his/her favorite books. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:54:46 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 @Nnikki_Duffy Can they access the books they like? Would they like to have contact with others who like reading? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:55:27 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT yeah I would probably ask when they read. Times of stress etc. where they read, what do they love about reading? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:56:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @eileenhegarty7 @Nnikki_Duffy good one! I am thinking a site like http://t.co/HRLyTnlTG1 #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:57:24 +0100)
@orlalalalala @eileenhegarty7 @Nnikki_Duffy #occhat http://t.co/V4wdAlBqEd (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:57:32 +0100)
@dawnyford @BillWongOT @nnikki_duffy @orlalalalala obviously reading a lot of BJOT at the mo. helps with degree. Need some fiction 4 balance! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:57:58 +0100)
@BillWongOT @dawnyford @Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala Same- I also read AJOT, Australian Occupational Therapy Journal, and other OT ones, too. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:59:03 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 @BillWongOT Yes, I’m a Goodreads member. Like that I can download samples of recommended books to my Kindle. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:59:22 +0100)
@BillWongOT @dawnyford @Nnikki_Duffy @orlalalalala I read a lot of these because I am writing lots of OT conference proposals. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 20:59:23 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat what do they love about reading might give clues. Like the runner who can’t run but what was found meaningful was competitiveness(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:00:15 +0100)
@BillWongOT @eileenhegarty7 or sometimes you can interact with like minded readers across the globe, too. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:00:31 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @eileenhegarty7 just downloaded that app but never used #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:00:58 +0100)
@dawnyford @Nnikki_Duffy @billwongot reading can mean dif things at dif life stages – for me now def work but come June, will be for relaxation #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:01:09 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy haha! Same can be said with strategy books. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:01:30 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy That’s a good point @BillWongOT I think also being able to discuss what u have read is also important to recognise #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:03:32 +0100)
@orlalalalala @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford @eileenhegarty7 i have to leave #occhat now, it was lovely chatting to you all. happy world book night!(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:03:40 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 @BillWongOT Must check that out. Don’t have many friends who share my taste for popular science. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:03:49 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy yeah- the type of strategy books I will buy will be on poker. 😉 #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:03:55 +0100)
@BillWongOT @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford @eileenhegarty7 nice chatting with you… see you later. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:04:31 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy As an OT, you could ask questions to find out what aspect of reading is meaningful to your client. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:05:16 +0100)
@eileenhegarty7 @orlalalalala @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford I’m being kicked off computer by a truculent child. Nice chatting with you all. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:05:24 +0100)

@dawnyford @orlalalalala @billwongot @nnikki_duffy @eileenhegarty7 thanks for ur company tonight- interesting chat. Not a ghost ship after all! #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:06:34 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy Does meaning come from being able to socialize at a bookclub? Learning new knowledge for work? Leisure/relaxation? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:07:03 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy good question- when I did book club, it was the 1st one mostly. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:08:55 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @eileenhegarty7 @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford @BillWongOT Sorry I was late to the #occhat . Just wanted to pop in and say hi.(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:10:11 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT stress reduction, emotional, traditions, role. The list can go on, shame that this is not explored more #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:10:13 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @eileenhegarty7 @orlalalalala @Nnikki_Duffy @dawnyford actually is not late at all- no grabchat until tomorrow. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:11:04 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT but I think that can make a good occupational science article. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:11:34 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat I will never look at reading on a persons interest checklist the same way again :)(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:11:43 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy good take home point. Reading can lead you to know something more about a client. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:12:57 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat I need to always think.. what is meaningful, what is meaningful, what is meaningful. Keeps us OT focused :)(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:15:00 +0100)

@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy I think we all do. We should never be on auto-pilot, even if we are experts in a particular #OT area. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:17:18 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy #occhat thank u all for ur insight sorry I need to pop out. C u all again next week. Happy world book day :)(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:19:01 +0100)

@Nnikki_Duffy RT @BillWongOT : Turns out today is a pretty good day on #occhat – slow start, great finish!(Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:20:53 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy it would be interesting to study the meaning of reading in different groups of people #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:21:29 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy Now we just need an occupational scientist who is willing to study all that. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:22:23 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy for example, parents of children with autism or adults with a cancer diagnosis. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:22:39 +0100)
@AbbyPediatricOT @BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy Reading would probably provide meaning for both groups, but in very different ways. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:23:18 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy or you can start planning a study to present it at WFOT in 2018. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:23:41 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT @billwongot great research proposal think of all the of times reading has been wrote down without a 2nd thought. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:24:21 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AbbyPediatricOT @Nnikki_Duffy For me, I know having a book club keeps me on my toes, as I needed extra push to read non-OT stuff. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:24:27 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT anyone wants to spear head this anywhere? COT? AOTA? #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:25:19 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @abbypediatricot just think of all the ideas 4 research that have come from #occhat great resource 4 OT students #dissertation (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:28:46 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy @AbbyPediatricOT but I think it will be good conference presentation topic. Something I didn’t think of b4 today. #occhat (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 21:30:13 +0100)
