Ever felt like wasting time and doing nothing?
Its actually such a good thing.
Studies say that boredom is a good way to relax our minds. And when we are in such a state, it actually inspires us to do "good" things. See more here.
Some also way that boredom enhances creativity since we tend to daydream when bored.
A boredom expert Prof. Peter Toohey (he wrote a book about it), says that:
A lot of people talk about the value of daydreaming, which can also be the product of boring or mildly boring situations, and your best ideas may come from it.'In some religions, boredom can also lead to a feeling of liberation through meditation and heightened sense of awareness and spirituality.
Really, a lot of benefits that I almost wish I am bored right now and not so busy writing this post.
