Bored? Trapped? How to Rejuvenate Your Life

Are you motivated? Do you wake up each morning feeling energized, excited to seize the day? Or is your life one of tedious routines, monotonous habits, repeating the same cycles, day after day, simply making do and getting by?

One of the great challenges in life – even though it sounds innocuous – is boredom. The monotony and the routine, feeds into a lethargy that ultimately leads to resignation and demoralization. It may seem harmless enough at the start, and yet it can often be the beginning of a downward spiral. Boredom creates a void, a breeding ground for all sorts of problems — as we desperately seek to fill the vacuum.

Another difficult challenge we face in life is the feeling of being trapped: The narrative goes like this: I’m stuck in my life. I can’t seem to get out of the rut. The more things change the more they stay the same. How can I escape this pit of negativity that’s holding me back?

Life is synonymous with movement. Everything in existence is pulsating with energy. Healthy living is all about hope and possibilities. When we feel languid and sluggish, we are actually defying the very nature of our core being, brimming with tremendous power within. Observe young children and how they never stop moving, always filled with enthusiasm and curiosity. How can we access and unleash the energy that is trapped in our outer routines?

Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson in this pre-Rosh Hashanah special program and discover how to break out of your boredom and traps. Uncover the secret to one of the greatest gifts in life; learning how to rejuvenate yourself, how to recharge your batteries in a sustainable way and how to access the tremendous resources and potency within you.

Dear Rabbi Jacobson,

Your recent presentation on overcoming boredom was exactly what I needed to know. Thank you so much for this and for your presentations over the years.
