A Wandering Mind Is an Unhappy Mind

From the latest Science.

"We developed a smartphone technology to sample people’s ongoing thoughts, feelings, and actions and found (i) that people are thinking about what is not happening almost as often as they are thinking about what is and (ii) found that doing so typically makes them unhappy. "

Lessons learned: 1) try to stay focused, and 2) write down what is in mind when finding myself mind-wandering and come back to it later.
