To find new ideas, shut your mobile phone and get bored

Boredom = ideas

Do you sometimes have your most creative ideas while folding laundry, washing dishes or doing nothing in particular? It’s because when your mind gets bored and your body goes on autopilot, your brain gets busy forming new neural connections that connect ideas and solve problems. Mobile phones and other communication devices are tools that we constantly tap into to prevent boredom. They have become addictions which drain our attention span and stifle creativity. Shut them off and get fresh ideas. Learn to love being bored to trigger the connection between spacing out and creativity.
