Distraction doesn't make you un-bored; it simply disguises the boredom for a time. That won't do. No, rather, being engaged is where it's at. Fun and creativity and adventures, and perhaps the occasional silliness or craziness. If things are not-so-good lately, perhaps it's because things are boring? Could you do anything to make things less boring? Hmm?
A downside to being analytical, ambitious, driven, and learning about a lot --
You see problems where others do not.
Because, what is "potential" except a set of things that aren't right already?
Because of that, it's easy to get restless, not happy with the status quo, to feel like you're falling short of all you know it's possible.
The funny part, seeing that potential, seeing how things could be... it means you actually get to live a much more rich and full life. You just maybe don't appreciate it as much, because you see all the other things you could be doing better.
