What is this workshop about?

In today's fast-paced world, we don't allow ourselves to get bored. In fact, we do everything we can to avoid this often misunderstood but incredibly important state of mind for our well-being and creativity.

In this workshop, we'll define what boredom and annoyance are, discuss their importance and dispel the common stigmas associated with these mental states. We'll talk about the concept of the brain's default mode and analyze the brain regions associated with creative thinking and self-reflection, highlighting the connection between boredom and productive brain activity. We'll also talk about the challenges of the modern world and the consequences of the fear of boredom, such as device addiction, burnout and social isolation. Finally, we'll offer practical strategies for cultivating constructive boredom. We hope this workshop will be as boring as you like!
