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. According to Wharton University professor Adam Grant, procrastination actually makes your brain more inventive, and some of the most famous thinkers (Martin Luther King Jr., Leonardo Da Vinci) were known to produce their best work at the last minute - I Have a Dream, anyone?

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!
