What Happens When People Are Bored At Work (50 Pics)

On a regular day, you would never dream of spending 6 hours turning an avocado into a piece of art, or covering an entire page of your notebook with mind-blowingly intricate doodles, but it’s amazing how creativity is sometimes spurred by a lack of focus.

If you’re sitting at your desk right now and feeling guilty for constantly drifting away from that project you were meant to finish 2 hours ago, cut yourself a break and embrace all that ‘free time’ you’re giving yourself. If you’ve made your own masterpiece in a moment of extreme distraction, add it to our list at the end!
