The Benefits of a Blank Brain. Boredom Has Its Rewards.

In today's world, we are constantly bombarded with stimuli. From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep, we are inundated with information, from our phones, our computers, our TVs, highway traffic and our family and friends. It's no wonder that we often feel like our mind is constantly on overload.

But what if I told you that there is a benefit to having an empty-headed mind? That sometimes, the best way to be creative is to simply let your mind wander?

It may seem counterintuitive, but boredom may be a powerful source of inspiration. When we're not constantly stimulated, our brains have a chance to relax and recharge. This can lead to new ideas and insights that we might not have otherwise had.

It's not always easy to find time to be bored. But if you can make the effort, you might be surprised at how much you enjoy it. Here are a few tips for embracing boredom:

* Go for a walk in nature.

* Read a fun book.

* Take a nap.

* Spend time chatting with friends.

* Do some creative work, like painting, sculpting or writing.

* Simply sit and do nothing. Zazen.

Boredom is often perceived as a negative thing, but it can actually be a powerful tool for learning, growth and creativity. When we are bored, we are forced to turn inward and explore our own thoughts and feelings. We may also be more open to new experiences and ideas.

Boredom is not the most exciting thing in the world, but it can be a valuable tool for creativity and inspiration.

So next time you're feeling bored, don't fight it. Embrace it!

There is a joy to be found in a vacuous brain. When we take the time to unplug and let our thoughts flow freely, we can often find inspiration and creativity that we never knew we had.

Studies, found that people who spend time in nature are more likely to have creative ideas. The researchers believe that being in nature helps to clear our minds and allow us to think more freely.

Neuroscientists described in recent years a neuronal system in the brain that is called the ‘brains default mode network’. This ‘default mode network’ is always active, even at sleep, busily processing memories and information, or daydreaming. It is supposed that this neuronal default network is coordinating other parts of the brain and preparing it to get its tasks accomplished in alignment with the person’s conscious thoughts of objectives and intentions.
