The Latin word taedĭum came to our language as He gave you . That Latin word we have to expose that, in turn, derives from the verb "taedere" that can be translated as "being disgusted." It is also interesting to establish that the Romans came to establish a relationship between that verb and what was the root of "fastidiare", which means "to annoy", "to annoy".
The concept refers to what a person experiences when he feels a big boredom or should tolerate something that he does not care .
For example: “Work boredom makes me fed up: I need to get a new job that generates enthusiasm for me”, "The judge's beep put an end to boredom: the teams tied goalless in a game that had no emotion", “The morning passed slowly, with tedium; there wasn't much to do in that field ”.
Boredom appears when an individual it doesn't make sense to an activity Therefore, at that moment you feel annoyance and reluctance since there is nothing that causes you interest or enthusiasm Tedious activities, in this way, provoke weariness or discomfort .
Suppose that a young man, at the direction of his boss, must attend a conference on leadership . The subject is unattractive: when the talk takes more than two hours, the boy does not know how to deal with boredom. Yawns, looks at the clock insistently, plays with his hands and even scribbles on paper to try to distract himself.
Typically, to avoid boredom, the person look for a hobby or some activity that allows you to leave that state. A woman who gets bored having to clean the window glass can do the task listening to music so that the moment is more bearable and the cleaning is a little more pleasant.
Throughout history there are many authors who have written about boredom and this would be the case, for example, of Baudelaire who in his poem entitled "To the reader", does not hesitate to describe him as the strongest sin of being human.
Also we can not ignore the existence of a film that is precisely entitled "Tedium." Cédric Kahn is the director of this 1998 film, which won several nominations for the César Awards, and which stars Sophie Guillemin and Charles Berling, among others.
It tells the story of Martín, a university professor who is living one of the most complicated moments of his existence until that moment. And it is suffering both personally and professionally. However, a young model named Cecilia will cross her path, which will become a real breath of fresh air.
They will establish a passionate sentimental relationship that, little by little, will lead Martin to situations that he could never have imagined, will make him leave aside all his principles and ideas, that he enters a circle of unexpected obsessions and mysteries ... that enters packed in a really dangerous spiral.
