Boredom is a choice—new article

In my most recent True Community article, I consider a phenomenon I see over and again at the community college. Students come to classes believing it’s the job of the class or the professor to keep them engaged.

I have, in the wake of this trend, begun lecturing students on the nature of boredom. I’ve actually started teaching mindfulness in class, and this semester I made two of my classes meditate. I don’t know if it will have any effect but it’s been keeping me interested. I may very well become a member of the Contemplative Mind in Society. This is coming from someone who belongs to zero academic organizations.

Hope you’ll read and share my article.
