Caroline Leaf, Ph.D.: “We spend between half to three quarters of our day in our minds time traveling between the past, present, and future.”

*How to measure your personal formula for happiness*
*Why millennials are more prone to anxiety*
*Why it doesn't actually take three weeks to form a habit*
*How to tap into your mind's optimism bias*
*Why you're never really living in the present moment*
