Why do our minds wander? When and why can it be good for you? Ruminating doesn’t always lead to anxiety and depression – in fact in plays a vital role in problem solving and happiness.
Research has revealed that our brains are inherently noisy. Certain regions are always grinding away at involuntary activities like daydreaming, worrying about the future, and self-chatter. This is mindwandering.
Daydreaming and ruminating can tug your attention away from the present and contribute to anxiety and depression. However, in this livestream event, internationally renowned neuroscientist Moshe Bar will present revelatory and exciting new research that highlights how mindwandering actually plays a vital role in solving problems and inducing happiness.
Bringing this ground-breaking research to the forefront, Bar will argue that we can become aware of where our minds wander, directing them to stimulate creativity, increase focus and boost our mood. He will investigate these benefits and provide the tools and understanding to help harness our wandering minds in order to boost our creativity as well as our moods.
Don’t miss this multifaceted exploration of the phenomenon of the wandering mind. Along the way, we learn why we should meditate, how to profit from imagined experiences and how we can make the most of our limited mental resources.
