Bored and Brilliant: How Time Spent Doing Nothing Changes Everything



Have you ever noticed how you have your best ideas when doing the dishes or staring out the window? Discover why such ‘idle’ activities are crucial for our creativity and start to reclaim those still moments.

'Bored and Brilliant is full of easy steps to make each day more effective' – Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit

In this easy to follow, practical book, award-winning journalist Manoush Zomorodi reveals how our 'plugged-in' lifestyles affect our brains. We are addicted to our phones; tweet as we watch TV, watch TV as we commute, check Facebook as we walk and Instagram while we eat. Bored and Brilliant expertly diagnoses the implications of our screen-addictions and provides pragmatic solutions to resist being drowned by digital stimulation.

The perfect companion for those keen on optimizing time, nourishing their creativity, and handling technology thoughtfully. Don't let the ceaseless chatter of the digital world throttle your original thinking.

Switch off and rediscover the power of simply doing nothing.
