Josh Davis explains that from a scientific point of view the human brain was not created to stay focused but instead to always be alert to new stimuli or things happening around us as a way of surviving. He talks about the concept of mind wandering which many people think of as a waste of time, but that research indicates is an important way to recharge the brain and think creatively. Davis discusses how taking a break to just stare out the window and unconsciously process new information can be an important way to be able to perform better when one returns to a critical task.
