I know that’s a bold statement, but it’s true. Let’s say you’ve been feeling very bored lately. Your job is boring – you sit around 8 hours a day at your desk frustrated that you’re so bored. You watch the clock move minute by minute, just waiting for a break or the day to end. Or you’re a student and school is boring. You have to sit through class after class, not interested in the material, or overwhelmed by the material. Or your friends are boring. You have to socialize with people that don’t interest you, or spend your time doing things that don’t interest you.
We’re not just talking about being bored once in a while. A husband might not like going grocery shopping with his wife, but he likes the meals she’ll make with the food. A wife may not enjoy going to the ball game with her husband, but she knows it makes him happy, and she’s willing to do it. I’m talking about when you wake up in the morning dreading the day because you know it’s going to be boring for you. Hour after hour, all day long. This is where acupuncture can make a real, substantial difference.
Boredom Is A Physical Condition
Imagine, for a moment, that boredom is not a mental state, but rather a physical state. So it’s not like being angry. It’s more like being hungry. If that’s the case, then we can reduce the boredom if we find the physical solution. If you were hungry you’d eat a sandwich and feel better. So what’s the physical solution for being bored?
The answer is MOVE YOUR QI. That’s right. You’ve got to move the Qi in your body and your boredom will lift. Qi is energy that flows through your body. It nourishes your organs, builds and moves the blood, allows you to move your limbs and engage in activities. Qi is the thing that gives us life.
Now Qi has many functions. One of it’s functions is to smooth our emotions. When our Qi moves smoothly through our body we feel good emotionally. However, when our Qi gets stuck and does not move smoothly, we have problems. One of those problems is that it makes us feel bored in our lives. Bored with our jobs, bored in our relationships, bored with our day to day tasks that are necessary for a good life.
How Acupuncture Cures Boredom
Acupuncture is the solution for boredom because acupuncture is the single best way to get your Qi to flow smoothly again. Chinese medicine doctors specialize in identifying why your Qi is stagnant and treating you with acupuncture to correct the problem and move the Qi. We are “balance restorers” for the body, correcting imbalances responsible for Qi stagnation.
Acupuncture won’t turn a lousy job into a good one. But it will get you out of boredom and help you see what you need to do to get a better job, or make changes in your current one to improve it.

It will empower you to make the changes in your life where they are needed. It will also help you relax into tasks, helping them become less boring.
