Some time ago, Pallas Athena had one mandate for me: to learn to tell stories. When I asked her about it & questioned her reasoning, I was told that stories are a means of connecting with wisdom from ages path, and the stories themselves become a gateway towards deeper understandings. Doing as she's suggested has proven to be wonderfully transformative for me, as diving into the stories of old can rather drastically change the way you look at the world....especially while interacting with the spirits those stories are about!
If you find yourself bored and searching for things to do, I'd recommend following this particular path. Read the stories of empires past and come to understand both the historical context of the stories themselves & their wider meanings. As you begin to understand the essence of what's being conveyed within, you'll find yourself connecting more deeply with the Gods and Goddesses of your choosing, all the while having a better contextual understanding of the current you're wading in.
A story need not be serious for it to have worth, and so you can jump right in. Be it about Anansi, the Greek Gods, the Kami of Japan, or the Temple Guardians in China, there's plenty to learn, and if you've got kids, you can share the more benign stories with them and use them as a teaching and bonding tool.
Its a lot more fun than you might think, and there are quite a few spiritual perks to it too. ;)
