Why We Zone Out (And Why Itâ€™s Not Entirely a Bad Thing)
Geege Schuman stashed this in Creativity
â€śInÂ adapting to a complex world, we need to escape the here and now, and consider possible futures, mull over past mistakes, understand how other peopleâ€™s minds work. Above all, mind-wandering is the source of creativity, the spark of innovation that leads in the longer run to an increase rather than a decrease in well-being.â€ť
So you're saying it's a good thing our mind wanders? :)
That's right. Â Our brains go on walkabouts and it's healthy.
I like the phrase "walking mind" than "wandering mind".
