Idle mind may not be the devil’s workshop!

An idle mind may not necessarily be the devil’s workshop; to the contrary, too much stress on action could produce unforeseen outcomes, says a new study.

“Our research highlights how the pressures of society to be active may produce fairly unregulated behavior,” said Dolores AlbarracĂ­n, a professor of psychology at Illinois University, who led the study.

AlbarracĂ­n said the findings could help our understanding of how common words used in everyday life may influence conditions like attention deficit hyperactivity and bipolar disorders.
