Daydreaming And Happiness

11.15.10 | Bob Price

   A new study by Harvard University suggests daydreaming and mind-wandering makes you less happy.  Those of you who are able to focus properly tend to be the most content.  Researchers found about half the time, people think about something other than what they're supposed to thinking about. Harvard scientists surveyed 2-thousand people from 83-countries.  At random times of day, subjects were asked what they were doing, thinking, and feeling.  Reseachers say their findings back up the views of many religious scholars who emphasize the need to focus on the here and now, to find true happiness.
