Lately I've been feeling a bit dull and bored. I should really go do some research & advice-seeking on it. Anyone have anything to recommend?

How do you know that you are bored?

Huh. I'll have to hold that question for a bit. Seems like a good one.
To answer immediately, my mind seems to eagerly seek anything novel and not the object (typically my meditation object is the breath) to attach to a be able to play with. As though what it is experiencing isn't sufficient. I'm reading that as boredom.
