A Bored Sim

Bored is an emotion in The Sims 4. It is obtained when a Sim does the same interactions and conversations over and over, as well as reading skill books below the Sim's level,[1] and watching TV channels that are not suited for one's traits or age group. It can be from kids and teens coming back from school.

Sims cannot die from boredom. This emotion can be removed by using an object in the household that increases the fun need, although a low Fun need gives the Tense moodlet. Children and teenagers can also feel bored after timeouts, although some may get the Sad mood as well.
