happier when busy, sorta [Jul. 26th, 2010|10:22 am]

We're happier when busy but our instinct is for idleness - interesting study and it kinda jibes with what I've noticed about myself.

Seemed appropriate since yesterday was the beginning of Hell Week for the summer musical. So I guess I should be ecstatic :-)

An intriguing article, but I'm not sure about the "futile busyness."

Sounds like World of Warcraft or other MMO grinding to me.

I hate to be idle...but I love getting to pick my own busyness and taking frequent breaks. :)

That's why I need a job that keeps me active. I definitely have a strong tendency toward idleness.
