Embrace boredom

In our increasingly loud, distracting world, we’re seldom bored. But just doing nothing has its perks.

Why it matters: Filling our brains with the constant flood of junk food from our phones — tweets, Facebook and Instagram posts, tabloid gossip — leaves little room for creative and original ideas, studies show.

  • That’s why one of the most productive times for brainstorming is when we’re in the shower, experiencing a rare digital detox.

What’s happening: With stimulation right at our fingertips, our tolerance for being bored has evaporated.

  • And the problem is worse for the next generation: A whopping 87% of U.S. teenagers have iPhones.
