Can We be Bored to Death?

Boredom is a serious motivation. Two reasons people get involved in risky behaviors, such as addiction or creating drama around us, is trauma and boredom. Those in severe poverty more often than not have both trauma and boredom as facts in their lives.

“The state of boredom is almost certainly a proxy for other risk factors.”
