Abstract

Mind-Wandering: What Should we know for Clinical Practice?

Tiago Figueiredo

Mind-Wandering (MW) is traditionally characterized as an attention shift from externally oriented task-related thoughts to internally task-unrelated thoughts. Although this is recognized as a natural phenomenon of mind, excessive MW has been related to several adverse outcomes in some executive domains. In this short communication it was discussed about the phenomenology of MW, an important tool for clinical practice.
