Why allowing your brain to be bored is a good thing
When’s the last time you were bored? My guess is not since before you got that smartphone. In those days of old — let’s call it B.S.P. (Before SmartPhones) — we would sit in a waiting room and do nothing, or maybe read. We’d sit in the car and gaze out the window. We’d ride an elevator and just stare at the door. We’d eat a meal and pay attention to the food, not the phone. We might even engage in good conversation. Perhaps in B.S.P. times, we even sat in the house and did nothing. Was it all that bad?
