Why we love Being Bored

Just doing nothing is so precious and it is so nice to be far away from the hustle and bustle of London on our holiday in France. It is not only the London lifestyle that keeps us busy, but our smartphones keep us occupied too. We constantly look for new inspiration and more exciting news on our IT devices and, in doing so, we tend to forget about the small pleasures in life. That is why it is so important to take a break and escape our daily routines. Especially when living in a big city like London. We have so many things going on in our lives that just sitting still and doing nothing is very rare. But when you've finally made your escape or when you find a beautiful place which you really like, you realise just how beautiful it is to just be still and let your thoughts wander. In fact, did you know that feeling bored makes you more creative? We recently listened to a very interesting TED podcast by Manoush Zomorosi on "How boredom can lead to your most brilliant ideas". Please take your time to listen to it. It is really very engaging! It is not only that being bored helps you to be more creative, but that boredom also helps us to unwind, sit back and just relax. This might might even help you find a solution to a challenge you're facing or realise what really matters in life.  By being bored you almost slip into a mini-meditative state of mind that can activate your subconscious mind, which is often better at solving problems than your conscious mind! Lastly, you might even get some clarity about which people you want to have in your life, and who really matters to you. So, as you can see "being bored" is great for us and we are currently enjoying it every minute!

We would like to thank yoga blogger Jeanette Fuchs for wearing our Wellicious styles and for this incredible picture at Villa Zoe in Crete.
