#atozchallenge F is for Focus on the Now

This is a bonus post directing you to one of the latest Brain Pickings posts – The Science of How Your Mind-Wandering Is Robbing You of Happiness.  The post pulls together many happiness studies, a TedX talk and other findings, providing convincing proof that a key to our happiness, writer or not, is in focusing on the here and now. There is also a link to a list of the seven must-read books on happiness.

So, we’re not just talking about focus for the sake of getting tasks done, focus and immersive living in the now are keys to our own happiness.
