Hi, Lisa!

Absolutely you can get bored - but you have the creativity to change this. When I start to feel bored with a client, that's a wake up call to me. It usually means I've allowed the same type of talking or self-pity to go on for too long. I have to change it up! Get she or he to see a different perspective.

It's always on me to create my life as exciting or as boring....and it can go either way if I'm not conscious of my choices. As a healer and coach and Phd Psychology researcher, it's on me to change things up and make it fun for me and the client.

When I get bored -- I get my clients and myself moving. We dance out our issues - or draw a piece of artwork - meditate - sing and play in the trees. There are so many ways to help heal someone, that when you start to doze off --- remember to get curious and change the dynamics.

My advice - come at everything with such curiosity, like a little kid again, that there's no room for boredom!

Hope this helped.

Hi Lisa, I'm answering in response to your #human-resources part, as I speak to my previous experience as a human resources manager. I appreciate that you realize that human resources also deals with mental health and human behavior.

As with any field, it really depends on the mental space in which you approach your job and what you do to keep yourself in check, and how active you are in staying current in your field. With anything, there are professionals who take their jobs seriously and find ways to deal with the stress they experience from dealing with people all day, and those who do not work as proactively to develop those skills. Those who find ways to keep themselves engaged tend not to get as bored or tired. Ultimately, it comes from knowing yourself and picking the right career based on your appreciation of people, and the active decision to be present every day.

Hope this helps!
