I believe that one of the biggest reasons that you do things that you know you’re not supposed to do is because you feel bored or you fear feeling bored.
For most of you, your lives are so filled with stimuli, not to mention responsibilities, that it’s almost impossible for you to sit still and do nothing, much less relax-even for a few minutes. What I’d like you to do is allow yourself to be bored. I’m not kidding. If you allow yourself to be bored, even for an hour-or less-and don’t fight it; the feelings of boredom will be replaced with feelings of peace. And, after a little practice, you’ll learn to relax.
