Washington: Mind wandering can be a sign of mental wellbeing, provided that your off-task musings are interesting and useful even if not related to the task at hand, a new study has suggested.Michael S. Franklin and his colleagues used a detailed experimental protocol to show that the negative effect of mind wandering on mood only holds for run-of-the-mill musings: in contrast, creative musings are a sign of mental wellbeing.In this recent study, 105 student volunteers were equipped with a personal digital assistant, which asked them at random moments - approximately 50 times over one week - how positive or negative they felt, whether they were mind wandering, and if any musings they had were interesting, useful, or novel.
