I think now a days it's called "mindfulness". Just taking time out to sit and relax and observe your surroundings wherever you might be. It gives you time to think, reflect and appreciate even, what you are looking at. :)
there is a big difference in doing nothing and being bored. how can you be bored with all that going on?
Good poinmt MKSP=If one decides to take a day off from the world, and yet is still board, then that defeats the purpose of doing nothing. Might as well just go back to doing something. If one sits quietly, and enjoys doing nothing-THAT is a different story.
