How can we learn to embrace boredom?

THE BIG STORY | posted Monday, Mar 1st, 2021

In today’s Big Story podcast, even without a global pandemic, we’re spending less and less time just doing nothing. The urge to check our phone every 20 minutes is the same urge that leads us to online shopping and bread making and … anything else to distract us from our current predicament.

But what if we could learn to turn our boredom into a strength? If we could train ourselves to once again sit quietly in the moments we get to ourselves? It’s no secret the past year has taken a toll on our mental health. But can we help ourselves by embracing the stillness forced upon us?
