Why do we fear boredom?

Mental WellnessInspirationPhilosophy

"…You'll have to excuse the noise for the moment. My kids are having a wonderful time at this McDonald's play land not too far from where I live. And one would say that they aren't bored today. But it made me think, why does boredom exist? It seemed so detrimental to our growth, and especially in America, we stress so much about being productive, grinding, setting goals and achieving them that anything less is uncivilized. But why?…"
