We are moving into a digital age, and we know it. People asked for a technological revolution, and they got it. New phones, iPads, Gaming Centres and what-nots. Now every time a person doesn’t have something to do they whip out their phone or tablet and start “passing time”. But it’s not necessary to always “pass time”. Why not someday we slow down, instead of taking out our devices the moment we get “bored”, let us just try to ‘be’. Just live in the moment and soak in everything around you.
Research shows that getting “bored” helps you think different and enhances your creativity. It gives birth to new and different ideas. Research also shows that humans are being too dependent on their devices to pass their time. They think it is “uncool” to get bored. A few researches show that a new type of fear “thaasophopia” is coming up in force. Thaasophobia is the fear of getting bored.
So next times we are getting bored, let us remain bored.
