“Feeling bored is good for your mental health,” this is what Ghazal Alagh wrote in her latest X post. She added that the habit of getting bored, even for half an hour, can help one to think creatively. For instance, she mentioned that when people bored, their minds are free to wander, and this can lead to new ideas and solutions. Furthermore, she pointed out that this habit is also important for kids.

“I had an interesting conversation yesterday with Tanmay and Varun where we talked about how we have become ‘human doings’ instead of ‘human beings’. Getting bored for half an hour a day allows you to think creatively, seek solutions to your problems, and find peace,” Ghazal Alagh wrote.
