We all have moments when we are supposed to be working on a task or project and suddenly realise that we have been lost in thought for quite some time!
You’re unsure how long you have been wandering and quickly look back at your clock to see the time. Naturally our minds wander around 50% of the time. This was discovered by Harvard researchers when they commenced a study on 2,250 people to see what they were doing and thinking at precise moments during the day.
The gaps between doing and thinking ranged far and wide. The most notable gap was during work activities, which is why we have come up with a few ways to keep your mind on track.
