Though, many people feel that dreams are bliss and there is nothing better than dreaming. Yet, a recent study has found some very startling information. According to the study by two researchers from Harvard, it has been stated that a daydreaming mind is because of an unsatisfied mind.
The research was conducted by Matthew A. Killingsworth and Daniel T. Gilbert and was printed in the November 12th issue of the journal, Science. The study has further stated that a person pays emotionally for dreaming when awake and thinking about things that are not real.
The study was concluded on the basis of 250,000 data points regarding the emotions, thoughts and actions of 2,250 people, who had participated in the study. The people involved in the study used to be sent a questionnaire on their iPhones about what were they doing, were they thinking about their current activity or something else and how happy were they feeling on a random basis?
It was found in the study that people enjoyed lovemaking the most, followed by exercising and conversing with people. It was also found that people were the most unsatisfied when they were working or using their home computer.
Mr. Matthew A. Killingsworth is a doctoral student at Harvard, while Mr. Gilbert is a Professor at the University. While talking about the study, Mr. Killingsworth stated that a person’s happiness could be estimated by how much they daydream.
Apart from relating happiness and wandering, the study also found out that humans tend to daydream half of their waking hours away.
