Love this, thanks for a thoughtful post Barking Up the Wrong Tree – there’s never any need to be miserable ever again folks!
‘Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.’ Damn straight, Einstein.
Anytime you need to be happier, just do some time travel. It’s that simple.
I know what you’re thinking: He’s finally gone insane.
No, I’m not crazy. And you don’t need a time machine. You’re just going to use your imagination.
But scientific research shows this is a great way to immediately increase happiness. You can do it anywhere and it doesn’t cost anything.
Research shows happiness is all about where you put your attention. And shifting your attention to the past, the future or even the present — can boost happiness.
Still sound silly? Stay with me. You do unhappy time travel all too frequently.
When you are overcome with regret, you’re turning your attention to negative elements of the past. When you worry, you’re thinking about an unpleasant future. But we can also use mental time travel to get the best out of life.
