Being bored is common for women in the middle. Boredom might have been coming up for you on the regular, even without the pandemic, but the situation with COVID-19 is definitely shining a big spotlight on it for many women our age.

Your normal life has been affected. You can’t do what you’ve been doing on a daily basis for years. But the pandemic isn’t responsible for all of the boredom in the world these days.
