Dealing with Boredom

I find that my most difficult emotion to experience is boredom. I feel anxious, tired, and fidgety when I am bored. This often happens at work and when this happens I want to buffer rather than do my work. How do you sit with boredom? And how do I allow the urges to scroll through Facebook or the internet or eat be there but not act on them? I feel like I am just white-knuckling this emotion now and I feel an intense urge to relax later in the day.
