Did your mind start wandering more often than usual during the past few months? You know, that daydreaming state—when you are physically here, but mentally somewhere else. When it happens, we tend to catch ourself, and bring our focus back to the task at hand.
But mind wandering can actually be beneficial. In fact, it's essential for our creativity and our productivity. So how does it work?
This week, you will learn about the history and neuroscience of mind wandering. Then, if like me you are a bit of a mind explorer, we will also investigate the world of mental maps, cognitive maps, mind maps, and concept maps. (so many maps!)
