The majority of research on boredom concerns the situational aspects of boredom, such as monotonous stimuli and decreased arousal; however, clinical concerns such as addictive behaviors involve people who experience boredom habitually. This paper describes a phenomenological study focused on 6 persons (16 to 67 years old) who experienced habitual boredom, those who were bored with their lives.
