I came across this ted talk a few days ago. I was immediately convicted of how much I tend to check my phone. This isn’t the first time I’ve felt this conviction. I’ve gone on a few social media fasts in the past, and it’s amazing how much more I accomplish in a day. I throughly enjoy deleting social media apps from my phone for a few weeks at a time, it’s liberating! I never really thought about how boredom could be beneficial. For a type A personality, boredom can be stifling. However, I’m willing to embrace a little boredom in exchange for deeper thinking.
