Will raving ever get boring?
Every weekend there’s another big party to go to, or a festival, or a smaller party, or a cheeky afters, or morning rave, maybe a forest rave… The cycle of eat (maybe), sleep (maybe), rave, repeat is just so much fun, how could it ever get boring?
The question of whether the lifestyle will ever lose its magic has a simple answer. Yes, it will get boring one day. That doesn’t mean you won’t want to party in your later years, but there comes a point for everyone where it can go flat, even if just for a short time.
IT’S ONLY NATURAL
It doesn’t matter what it is, every exciting activity eventually loses its appeal. Variety is actually a core human need, our brains thrive on change and new stimuli. Maybe switching night raves for day parties will alleviate the mundane…
CHECK IN WITH YOURSELF
So you’ve actually got bored of partying, weird feeling isn’t it? This is a time to check in with yourself and reflect on what’s lacking. Figure out how you can change things up and still find the joy in one of life’s great pleasures… losing yourself to the music.
Time marches on and we all have to face up to the fact that we’re getting older. Now, while that doesn’t mean you get to a certain age and stop raving, it will have implications for your enjoyment of a rave. Whether that’s because “everyone’s so young” or “it’s not as good as it was in my day”. You laugh and think it won’t happen to you, and then it does…
Going out every single weekend can lead to mental and physical fatigue: seeing the same people, taking the same substances, drinking the same drinks - it can all just end up feeling monotonous. The less is more approach is useful here. Cut things back and focus on a “fewer, bigger, better” strategy.
CHASING THE PARTY
Going through peak experiences is amazing, of course. But those extraordinary dopamine hits can create a strong craving for more. Chasing the highs can lead to boredom because nothing ever quite matches up to that one time you had a mind expanding euphoric peak experience.
