"Boredom is rage spread thin."

Do you often find yourself daydreaming and bored to tears while on the clock? Researchers at the University of Central Lancashire in England have found that boredom helps with creativity and it gives us the time to daydream. Earl Nightingale once said, "You'll find boredom where there is the absence of a good idea."


The researchers say doing something boring seems to calm down our minds and allows them to wander a bit - even into creativity. In other words, a little daydreaming can make us better employees. 

All that time you spend fantasizing about a new job and constructing a giant rubber band ball can be a good thing. Just don't let your boss catch you.
