This job doesn’t challenge me anymore

Stay: In today’s job market, it is unlikely your boss is concerned that you might walk, so why should you? Keep plugging away and allow yourself the time and space to do things outside of work that will keep you mentally and physically on-the-ball. After all, isn't that in part what you’re working for?
