When on my own, I am rarely bored.
I do not find solitude boring. I am happy to walk in the woods, enjoy nature, and think about whatever pops into my mind. Or, in many places, read a book. Books save me from boredom during many of my non-working, non-sleeping, and non-doing-what-has-to-be-done hours. One is essential equipment for planes, trains, and waiting rooms. Of course, I have had boring situations imposed upon me, when I have not had a book or it would have been impolite to open one. I do watch television, but very selectively. I can live without it, so a power failure would be catastrophic only to items in the refrigerator and freezer. Of course, a winter loss of power might be unpleasant, but food would not spoil.
I can share some of the sentiments in the following piece, but would prepare for and, perhaps, even welcome periods of enforced boredom. I would not be.
