Scientist Explains Why He Bothered to Prove Humans Don't Like Sitting Alone for 15 Minutes Doing Nothing.

I like sitting alone doing nothing, for about 10-20 minutes, and just letting my mind wander. It's not exactly meditating, but it has a similarly relaxing quality for me.

Waiting rooms in doctor's offices or at the DMV or the auto shop or wherever are places I tend to want to just sit and stare off into space, making myself "alone" with my thoughts, as opposed to reading a magazine or paying attention to whatever daytime travesty is on the TV.

But I tend to absentmindedly flip through a magazine or look at my phone instead, because just sitting and minding your own business is often met with some confused and often unhappy looks, lol.
