When did you last have time to be bored?
Lethargic inactivity can be debilitating and depressing, but for those living in the modern world the pendulum has swung far in the other direction. We live in a hectic, hyperactive age. Excessive busyness and overfilled schedules are now the norm, but the effect of over-stimulation on our mental and emotional lives can be damaging. How might we address and counter such problems in order to experience our lives more fully? In How to Be Bored, Eva Hoffman explores the importance we place on success, effectiveness and alertness in today's competitive society. In a world where it's almost impossible to be idle, she draws upon lessons from history, literature and psychotherapy to help us appreciate real reflection and, yes, even boredom, to enjoy the richness of our inner and external lives.
