Being bored is bad, right? We'll certainly do anything to avoid it and with smartphones we need never be bored again, as we reply to our emails 24 hours a day, tweet as we watch TV, watch TV as we commute, check Facebook as we walk and Instagram while we eat. Stimulation is good. But what if it's not? What if what happens when our mind"wanders" is an important part of human cognition and an essential element of creative thinking. When award-winning journalist Manoush Zomorodi posed these question to her listeners on her popular New York public radio Podcast, the answer, from neuroscientists, psychologists and others was a resounding yes. So over the course of a week, she led thousands of her listeners through a week of experiments designed to help them reassess their technology habits, unplug for part of each week and jumpstart their creativity. Now in Bored and Brilliant, she will take you through a series of challenges that will help you rethink your relationship to your devices without completely leaving the digital world. This book is both a fascinating account of the history and science of boredom and a practical guide to inviting a little bit more boredom into our lives and reawakening our creativity.
