Manoush Zomorodi + Brooke Gladstone | On the Art Floor

In 2015, Manoush Zomorodi, host of WNYC’s popular podcast and radio show Note to Self, led tens of thousands of listeners through an experiment to help them unplug from technological distractions, get bored, reinvigorate their creativity, and change their lives. Bored and Brilliant expands on that experiment to show us how to reevaluate our device usage and live a better and smarter existence in this new digital age. Manoush explains the connection between boredom and creative thinking, exploring how we can harness boredom’s hidden benefits to become our most productive and creative selves without completely discarding our gadgets. With a foundation in neuroscience and cognitive psychology, the book examines the phenomenon of “mind wandering”, what our brains do when we’re doing nothing at all. Manoush includes practical strategies you can implement to ease the incessant demands of our digital world and enhance your ability to dream, wonder, and gain clarity in your life. The outcome will blow your mind.
