Abstract  Boredom was an unpleasant emotional experience in which individuals feel a pervasive meaningless of life. It affectes various psychosocial functions directly or indirectly. Currently, some researches on mental health, social adaptation, and academic performance have revealed the negative effects of boredom. However, most researches of boredom remain in the level of theoretical discussion or correlation study. Moreover, there is no uniform definition and systematic theory and model to explain boredom. Researches in the future are suggested to explore the mechanism of boredom and develop effective interventions to eliminate people’s boring state.
Keywords boredom      mental health      social adaptation      coping strategies
