During this time in quarantine, it is common to feel as though each second should be spent focused on completing necessary tasks. Experts are challenging this concept by drawing on how idle time often ends up being the most productive. The primary reason why downtime can result in heightened productivity, is because this is when we tend to be the most creative. This creativity is often the start of successful and profitable projects in the future.

- Sometimes doing nothing can result in the highest level of productivity because these are the times where we are often most creative.
- Although ad revenue with digital media has decreased by approximately 50%-70%, viewership has actually doubled.
