Wandering minds less happy than focused ones
There’s a good chance your mind is drifting right now, suggests a new study. And even if your daydreams are pleasant, you’d likely be happier if you just focused on what you’re doing.
The study, which periodically contacted people through their iPhones, encountered wandering minds close to half the time.
When people’s minds were disconnected from their actions, they were generally less happy than when they were truly engaged in a task — no matter what they were doing or what they were daydreaming about.
