What happens to us if we never get bored?

What happens to us if we never get bored?

It turns out that when you get bored, you ignite a network in your brain called the Default Mode.

In our daily life, while we’re folding the laundry or walking down the road our body surrenders to default mode & goes on auto-pilot; but experimentally this is when our brain gets really busy, connects to disparate ideas, see some most nagging problems, & we do something called “ Autobiographical Planning”.

Autobiographical Planning.

This is when we look back at our lives,

take note of the big moments,

create a personal narrative &

 then we set goals

& figure out what steps we need to take to reach them.

Once you start being lost in thoughts and

allow your mind to really wander, you start thinking;

a little bit beyond the conscious,

a little into the subconscious,

which allows sort of different connections to take place.

It's really awesome actually.

Multitasking is a Myth.

Multitasking is a Myth.

Every time you shift your attention from one thing to another, the brain has to engage a neurochemical switch that uses up nutrients in the brain to accomplish that.

So if you’re attempting to multitask, you know doing four or five things at once, you’re not actually four or five things at once, because the brain doesn’t work that way.

Instead, you’re rapidly shifting from one thing to the next, depleting neural resources as you go.

Shifting of Attention.

Decades ago, Our brains shifted attention at work every three minutes. Now, we do it every 45 seconds and we do it all day long.

For example, the average person checks email 74 times a day, & switches tasks on their computer 566 times a day.

Advice for Teenagers & Addictive Users.

So the next time you go to check your phone,

ask yourself, “ What am I really looking for? " 

Because if it's to check email, that's fine - do it and be done.

But if it's to distract yourself from doing the hard work that comes with deeper thinking, take a break, and stare out the window  

& know that by doing nothing you are actually being your most productive & creative self.

It might feel weird & uncomfortable at first, but boredom truly can lead to brilliance.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
