Have social media, smartphones and digital technology robbed us of the benefits of boredom? In this video, Taha from Answer in Progress explores if there is a hidden value to boredom by, well… being very bored (but not at all boring!). Turns out, he was thinking about boredom all wrong and learns that there are many types of boredom, some of which, we may not recognise as boredom. So what’s the answer? Should we quit social media? Do you think you need to be more attentive to when we are just scrolling?
As a boredom expert in the video appeared Mariusz Finkielsztein.
