Pursuing boredom for boredom’s sake

If you can’t stand boredom for boredom’s sake, take on a mundane task to put your mind in a wandering state.

Doing the dishes, organizing your vinyl collection, mowing the lawn, and taking a shower are all triggers that help release you from the grip of now.

Your brain needs time to chew over all that it absorbs, which it can only do by looking backward and rummaging though experiences, memes, and fleeting thoughts to bring them back alive.

Pursing tedium rewires the unconscious mind and strengthens mental processing. It is no surprise that eureka moments occur when you suspend the sober thinking robot and let your mind play instead.

Genius strikes when you quell the monkey mind, roaming into a chore with the means to chase something.
