Fearless reframing exercise

Recommended Posts

Hi I would like to ask regarding Fearless reframing exercise
​Basically I have  fear of boredom,which results in me procrastinating in a task.
​I have this fear that if i finish my task,I would be bored because there'd be nothing to do.
​SO my question is,
How do I reframe this sentence?

"If I don't have the fear of boredom,I can achieve my goals."

​My mind suddenly auto focuses on the word FEAR OF BOREDOM and it gets further ingrained in me.
​How can I rephrase that sentence.

Get rid of the word "fear."

 

Think more in terms of "being bored is uncomfortable" or just that it's something you don't want.

 

If I'm bored I'll...

 

Being bored means...

 

Being bored is bad because..

 

If people see that I'm bored they'll think I'm....

 

 

And look for the reason BEHIND the boredom, not the boredom itself.Generally speaking, being bored is a self-correcting problem. Perhaps you're afraid of what you'll be motivated to do if you ARE bored?

 

Perhaps you're afraid of running out of productive things to do?

 

If I run out of things to do it means...

 

If I don't have anything to do I'm....

 

And then look for the deeper issue.

Actually now that you mentioned it,being bored is a cover for being  afraid of death. Doing nothing = dead

How can I reframe fear of death?

Hey spectre, 

 

I am curious why is doing nothing = dead?

 

Oh basically it's because movement is life. The only time we don't move is when we are dead.  We are made to move..there's this buzzing energy in us,which cause us to move. We have this tension,if we stay in a place for too long...we develop this nervous energy.
