None of us wants to get bored. So we constantly do or at least try to do something and keep ourselves occupied. But if we pay heed to boredom it actually doesn’t go away even if we continously do something or stay busy. You can hangout with your friends and still get bored. In a recent study participants were put in a room for 6-15 minutes and keep themselves entertained with their thoughts. They were also given a shock button but they must avoid to press it.
