The Lost Art of Spacing Out

bored and brilliant

Previously, in Creativity and the Art of Zen, I explored the concept that by slowing our overactive minds and creating some inner stillness, ideas and intuition have the space to flow.

Boredom is another way that allows our mind to wander, and gives our creativity a chance to blossom. But in an age of constant connectively, where our phone is rarely out of our hands, being bored is a feeling we rarely allow ourselves to explore.

Learn how to love being bored in the TED talk, How boredom can lead to your most brilliant ideas, where speaker Manoush Zomorodi explains the connection between spacing out and creativity.

Whether through practicing mindfulness and meditation, or taking a break from the distractions of your phone, allow yourself some new ways to tap into the power of your mind and your own inner brilliance. Enjoy!
