There's More Than One Type Of Boredom
The journal Motivation and Emotion says
there are five types of boredom, varying from a calm and pleasant
experience to something more like depression. According to the
journal, boredom is the most common human emotion.
quick look at the five types of boredom:
This is considered a pleasant
form of boredom. It’s like "zoning out" on the couch in front of a
marathon of trashy, reality TV shows.
It's like daydreaming.
Letting your thoughts wander, or you're open to new ideas but don't
feel any motivation to actually get up and do something.
Ever responded to
the question "why did you do it?" with "because I was bored"? Then
you have probably experienced searching boredom. People who
experience searching boredom are highly motivated to find a more
interesting activity. And it can lead to innocuous behavior like
texting a friend or may even prompt violent or risky actions. It can
also result in highly creative and positive actions.
Trapped in a boring
lecture or a never-ending meeting? When you can't change your
circumstances — by getting up and leaving — your boredom may be
accompanied by restlessness and aggression, along with the desire to
do something else.
This is a very
unpleasant form of boredom, accompanied by a lack of motivation. It
seems to be similar to depression, and it may have more negative
consequences than the aforementioned other types. Apathetic boredom
can be assumed to be detrimental for personal psychological health.

Creating The Ideal Business Sign
looking to change your company's image or not, a new sign may be
just what you need to grab more attention and boost your business.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when you think about a redesign
of your company's sign.
It simple. When it comes to
copy, less is better because people simply cannot read much copy
when they race by in their car. Certainly it’s okay to put your logo
on the sign with your business name, but avoid the temptation to add
anything else — even your phone number.
Surroundings. If there are numerous other signs at about the same
height as yours, consider mounting it higher or lower, or use
different style lettering — anything to make it stand out.
Bright. Red and yellow coloring attract the most attention.
Unique color combinations are another way to catch someone’s eye.
The type of lighting is also important. Neon attracts attention and
establishes a contemporary image.
Better. A good
rule of thumb is to get as big a sign as you're allowed by local
Tough Materials. Aluminum and polycarbonate
materials are the best in the long run. Consider the following:
weather conditions, the sign's location, required life, appearance,
and your budget. Consult with your trade exchange broker for sign
companies within the exchange.
well-maintained sign projects a positive image. Normal cleaning can
be done by yourself, or through a maintenance company from the
In closing, think of your sign as a billboard
advertisement. If it’s electric, leave it on 24-hours a day. You can
also complement your main sign with a “sandwich board” outside your
shop, and decals or painted signs on your company vehicles.
