Cliffs Notes: Reframing the bad feelings around being "bored"; untangling boredom and guilt from one another; allowing yourself space to protect yourself when big things do come along; rethinking how to use down time; misidentifying boredom/silence/anxiety/distraction; being OK with our discomfort in silence; an emotional guidance scale we can all use; one of us being totally unable to access the word "fulcrum" for a very uncomfortable several seconds; the inherent luxury of boredom; permission to play, the past year doing a number on us and craving more slowness than ever.
PLUS: A lil' call to action at the end. Maybe we host a little happy hour or Zoom event or Clubhouse thing or whatever where we convene the small community of our listeners to talk, together, in real time (gasp) about being bored.
