Tuesday Talk: How boredom can lead to your most brilliant ideas
Do you sometimes have your most creative ideas while folding laundry, washing dishes or doing nothing in particular? It's because when your body goes on autopilot, your brain gets busy forming new neural connections that connect ideas and solve problems. Learn to love being bored as Manoush Zomorodi explains the connection between spacing out and creativity. Zomorodi is the host of "TED Radio Hour," exploring fascinating ideas, astonishing inventions and new ways to think and create with the world's most remarkable minds. Watch the talk here.
