  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Catch yourself daydreaming while washing the dishes again? If this happens often you probably have a pretty capable working memory, new research suggests.

This mind wandering, it seems, actually gives your working memory a workout.Working memory is the mental work space that allows the brain to juggle multiple thoughts simultaneously. The more working memory a person has, the more daydreaming they can do without forgetting the task at hand.

Makes me feel good about not paying attention in class!

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.

Now I don't feel so bad for wasting my time daydreaming so much. My imagination is more fun than most things nowadays (what with me being grounded)

Later research found that although you have a pretty capable working memory you have pretty dirty dishes. :)

And here I was thinking my mind wandered off routinely because I had the attention span of a gnat. Apparently I'm not alone.

Daydreaming is good... WHEN you are given time and peace to do it

A.K.A. During the time I am supposed to do homework...but don't expect many pleased teachers the next day.

Another good time is when I'm lying in bed waiting to go to sleep.

Dont worry. Next time your teacher complains about your homework not being done point her in the direction of the above link and say that you have better ways of improving your brain's capacity to take in information than wasting time on homework :)
Oh how I wish the internet had been invented during my schooldays. I had no excuses lol

I tend to do this for repetitive tasks, I have done it so much to the point that I can induce emotions from my imagination. At some points I was catching myself almost talking out loud at some of the imaginations and performing the same movements and snapping back to reality. Weird stuff.

Dreams are such mysteries. So far, scientists are even 100% sure why we dream but they have said that it seems like it is essential for the mind.

Also it is said that every mammal dreams.

I really enjoy dreaming and take them seriously during my spiritual introspection. They are, for me, really good indicators of what's going on in my inner-self.

So you have these two faster-than-light neutrinos walking into a bar...

Ah yes looking out the window with a happy gaze & your mind blissfully of in never never land then your rudely awaken by the desk lid being slammed down by the teacher, good days.
