Description: We present a model that describes why it is difficult to enjoy one’s thoughts, how it can be done successfully, and when there is value in doing so. Across 36 studies we have conducted on this topic with just over 10,000 participants, we found that thinking for pleasure does not come easily to most people, but can be enjoyable and beneficial under the right conditions.
