Low brain activities

People enjoy low brain activities because it gives them the option to unthink. Whether it’s movies or endless Instagram scrolling, the images are there telling us what to think.

Reading or listening to music, on the other hand, may take your mind places. As Ray Bradbury once put it, books create a ‘theater inside your head.’

When you pursue the answers out of passiveness, the mind takes a seat. Idleness is ok in moderation.

No one’s waiting for you to get off the couch and exercise your imagination. The door to exceptional wonder is open at all times.

  1. I like low brain activities as well. Especially youtube has done it for me, but I found that when I make the choice to rest actively, aka work out, I have a less of a need or want to browse youtube or other social media. I think it all depends how we chose to explore our lives and how we choose to use our time. Life happens when we get up from the sofa and start doing, instead of becoming part of the audience. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks for the extensive comment. The era of distraction makes our brain fat. I try to balance between consumption and production; easier said than done. Planning unscheduled time to turn off though whether it’s in working out or doing nothing is key as well.
