“Unfortunately for happiness, your brain is sold on the idea that the next moment is more important than the one we’re in. On the other hand, the moment that already passed by is more familiar—and therefore perhaps more comfortable—than this one right now. These biases of the brain are what move us all too easily into a state of confusion, ruminating on the past or bracing for an imagined future while neglecting to pause and live in the present, even though the present is all there really is. When we’re focused on the past or the future, we’re living in our thoughts, and not in reality.” from “Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy” by Mo Gawdat
