Modern humans of all ages have a strange relationship with boredom. I say strange because we seem to both crave and dread it.
We crave time to be creative and let our minds wander. And we know intuitively that doing so is a healthy and good thing.
But we are increasingly out of practice with the skill of boredom: it can bring up uncomfortable thoughts of: “should I be doing something else?” or “there’s so much to do, how can I just sit here?”
The team has created a little guide for you and your kiddos on boredom this summer.
Summer is the perfect time to practice the skill of boredom and reap its benefits, but it can take some engineering, especially if you have Orchid Kids at home.
