Summary:
Howard Burton interviews Dr Jonathon Schooler about mind wandering and meta-awareness. Dr Schooler describes meta-awareness as becoming cognitively aware of your own mind wandering. He discusses the ways in which mind wandering can interfere with a person's focus, but also the flip side in which it can help in the creative process. Dr Schooler's research has shown that meditation can actually reduce mind wandering and therefore increase reading comprehension.
