“I’m so bored” my youngest daughter exclaims as we drive through the endless beauty of the Karoo national park. “Outstanding, well done darling, now look out of the window”. Another one of Dad’s “no screen-time” trips.
Being bored suggests that you are not being hit with stimulating endorphins. Being bored can settle your mind, allow you to think and calm you down. Finding a far off view in a day of work is an excellent habit. The gap through the buildings to the distant places. The further you can see, so they say, the further you can think.
Perhaps it’s why we love sitting in the garden or under a tree. We've being doing it for thousands of years. A nature place to soothe our souls.
