The study showed that unlike other animals, human beings spend a lot of time thinking about what is not going on around them, contemplating events that happened in the past, might happen in the future, or will never happen at all. In fact the study show that “mind wandering” appears to be the human brain’s default mode of operation.
Put more simply, we all spend more time in this present moment thinking about past events or worrying about future ones than experiencing what is going on right in front or around us.
Furthermore, the study also found that even when we are thinking about positive or neutral past or future events, our brain senses these wandering thoughts as "stress" and subsequently releases the stress hormones, even though there is no "real" danger. The result of this constant release of stress hormones is a myriad of physical diseases, heart disease, diabetes and some believe even cancer. Mainly, mind wandering leads to unhappiness and an dis-ease state.
The study concluded that "a human mind is a wandering mind and a wandering mind is an unhappy mind. You and I however now have been enlightened by the studies' findings. We can now choose to find happiness in this present moment.
I now encourage you to enjoy, relish and focus on the present moment. It is where your true power resides and now according to many scientific studies, is where your true happiness lies. Don't miss the beauty, love, peace and the happiness happening right in front of you, right now. Namaste...love your life 'cause it is flying by!
