Even If You’re Thinking Pleasant Thoughts?

The NY Times reports Harvard psychologists analyzed a quarter-million survey responses to find that minds wandered 47% of the time. Those daydreamers were not as happy as people who were focused on the task at hand . . . whatever it might have been.

  • Do minds typically stray toward negative thoughts? To do lists, etc?
  • Why does focusing keep us happy?
  • What if you’re doing something unpleasant, like taxes?
  • Can’t daydreaming bring you to a happier place?
  • Is it about being present mentally in your daily life?
  • What can you do to stay in a happy place?
