July is National Anti-Boredom Month; yes, I am serious. I understand
that due to certain circumstance brought on by physical, mental,
emotional, financial and geographical challenges, an individualís living
conditions can become reclusive and isolated. This can result in
boredom. I also know that individuals of all ages can be surrounded by
numerous options of things to do, and still be bored. So aside from
those experiencing extenuating circumstances beyond their control, maybe

precipices that drop off into depression.
This may take doing some assertive thinking on the subject. What do you
enjoy doing? What are you doing when you feel the most relaxed and at

Lincoln Library is here for you! We have begun our summer reading
program and we would love to have you join us. We can be very
advantageous in your search for your boredom antidote. Do you want to
learn another language? Do you want to research a subject you are kind
of interested in to see if it is your thing? Reading a book about what
you are interested in just may be the springboard to actually put it and
you into play.

During the hours that you are enmeshed in the adventures found in
between the front and back cover of a book, there are numerous
scientifically proven benefits happening to you physically and mentally.
Reading is not only an easy method in your fight against boredom, it is
a healthy technique in fighting that gnawing feeling of wanting
something to do that you delight in doing.
