    In this blog post, Ellen Koneck discusses how boredom can be important to provide our minds the chance for self-reflection and encourages us to embrace boredom. I was surprised by how much I was able to identify with Koneck’s thoughts. I spent a lot of my summer traveling and as I’ve mentioned before, I absolutely love to travel. It’s an incredible privilege to see incredible places, meet new people, and interact with different cultures. This summer in particular though, I found myself with long flights and journeys where I had little to pass the time with. I quickly exhausted the two books I’d packed with me and had limited access to the internet - the horror, I know. The unexpected benefit of my boredom was an increased amount of time for contemplation that has made me more relaxed about the coming academic year and provided me a better perspective on decisions I’d been struggling with. Do you agree that boredom can have unexpected benefits? We’re constantly encouraged to keep yourself busy but is it just as important to leave unscheduled blocks of time? Do you think contemplation is better when it’s more purposeful; for example setting time aside for journaling or mediation?
