Embrace bored

Be bored.

Be at peace with your thoughts, and let them consume you. Put down your phone, disconnect from social networks.

Don’t seek stimulation just for the sake of it

Think about your problems. But don’t dwell on them.

Boredom makes you brilliant.

Boredom makes you more creative

Procrastinate. It’s good for you.

Not working will help you work.


Grab a coffee.

Smoke a pipe or three.

In Praise of Boredom – Maria Konnikova

If you’re stuck, get away and think.

Give yourself time. 🕒 It’s a precious gift.
