Are you afraid to be bored? Do we do a disservice to ourselves by avoiding boredom? When kids would say they were bored, I would often reply that it was brave of them to admit such a thing. I certainly would never admit boredom publically, even if it ever was something I felt. There are always things to contemplate. Embrace the absence of external stimuli.

Almost 20% of Arizona's ~180 public comprehensive high schools no longer have a physics teacher, including several large high schools in Greater Phoenix. Schools dropped physics after the economic recession of 2008, and the elimination accelerated in the past three years. Less than 20% of Arizona students take high school physics; this is HALF the nationwide average.
