According to many brain imaging studies, when feeling bored, the DMN areas of our brain are activated.
Increased DMN activity helps to boost the formation of new ideas through linking lines of existing information - one of the important ingredients of creative thinking.
But when we actively try to avoid boredom with distractions and stimulations like a quick scroll through Instagram or completing a level of Candy Crush, we are actually wasting those creative moments in reactive action.
Many of us find our sparks of genius when doing benign tasks – like folding the laundry, or when we are unable to be stimulated by digital rings, dings, and pings like in the shower.
Studies propose giving the brain a short break from stimulation and a chance to turn inward via DMN activation because an activated DMN enhances our ability to come up with new ideas.
Boredom activates the DMN areas of our brain. It's a state more likely to induce "seeking" or "approach" behaviors.
Simple routine changes like
could all help give your brain the space it needs to turn inward and activate creativity.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
