Step away from the smart phone…

Given the cold temperature outside, there’s nothing we want to do more than curl up on the sofa with a cosy cushion, a snuggly warm blanket, a steaming mug of tea and time to daydream. What’s more, it seems that the art of doing nothing is actually a fast track to creativity. That’s according to Grazia, who say:

“When was the last time you were bored? So bored your mind wandered and you dreamed up wonderful, ridiculous ideas? Was it years ago, before you started reaching for your smartphone the second life got bit dull?… Apparently our phone addiction means we’ve lost the capacity to be bored and this is damaging our creativity – you need to reach a level of boredom to make anything,” says Catherine Price, author of ‘How To Break Up With Your Phone’.

Futon Company says: Step away from the smart phone, grab a cuppa and up the ante on your creativity zone by doing… nothing! We have plenty of cosy options to get you started (as if you needed any persuading…)
