Truth In The Words 'Bored To Death'

February 11, 2010, 5:02 PM by Kelli Grant

You've probably heard the old saying, "I'm bored to death."  New research shows there may be some truth to those words.

Being bored alone won't kill you but the more bored you are, the more likely you'll have poor health habits and that can lead to many things including dying early from heart disease.

According to a recent study, people who are bored at work are two and a half times more likely to die from a heart problem. Researchers also say boredom can lead to not eating well, not exercising enough and not having a heart-healthy lifestyle. Doctors say there are many ways to conquer boredom and lower your risk.

"Don't be passive, refuse to be bored, get active in your life, take action toward other people, take action in your work life and in your recreational life, too. Kind of stubbornly refuse to be bored," Scott Bea, a Psychologist with Cleveland Clinic, said.

Boredom can also be linked to anger suppression, which can raise blood pressure and suppress the body's natural immunity. 
Those struggling with boredom are more inclined to take drugs or have psychological problems such as depression.
