a trigger to inspire motivation

Journalist and Author Manoush Zomorodi on the importance of making room for boredom:

“Our brains don’t just shut off when we’re bored. They’re still very active, using about 95% of the energy that an engaged brain requires. The difference is this: when bored, we become less focused and our mind starts drifting, shuffling through old memories and reflecting on the present and the future. We create unexpected connections, which lend themselves to creativity.”
