Be Bored, I Dare You
Benjamin Foley

I think once we become more aware of our responses to not having something to do immediately, we begin to choose differently. For example, if we consciously do not grab for our phone or some other screen, we might open up another part of our brain that is more conscious of our thoughts…versus doing things habitually.

When we get used to it, the bored feeling becomes a feeling of necessity since this is the time our greatest work is happening.

Being alone with our thoughts is underrated these days…thanks for your post Benjamin!
