Mind, Body, Soul
Take a mental vacation and let your thoughts meander; it won't lower your productivity according to a study in the journal "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences." Participants completed a repetitive computer task while scientists stimulated their frontal lobes in an effort to elicit mind-wandering.
As daydreaming increased, the participants' ability to do their work stayed constant or improved (not by a statistically significant amount). Scientist can't explain the results yet, but they do know that our mental capacity may be more expansive than previously thought, says senior study author Moshe Bar, Ph.D, (GoodHousekeeping June 2015).
