Living in the future

Living in the future

We spend 30 to 50 percent or our self-generated thoughts (what we think about without trying to concentrate) thinking about the distant future. We feel happy to think of our future as full of possibilities for improvement, and that we have some control realizing those possibilities.

In contrast, pessimism and low personal control over our circumstances are a good mix for misery. The pandemic has infected our general outlook. People feel pessimistic about their personal future right now and feel a sense of powerlessness and negativity.

While there's little we can do to change the realities of a global crisis we can change the mindset we use to face them.
