The good news, Harvard Business Review says, is we can train our brain to be more focused and productive—by improving our emotional balance.
Dr. Paul Hammerness and Margaret Moore write that negative emotions sabotage our brains’ ability to solve problems and ignore distractions, while positive emotions and thoughts actually improve the brain’s executive function.

More to the point, the takeaway lesson of pretty much all of the recent research I’ve read: even mild chronic depression can really fuck up your life, and it would be nifty if there was broader societal recognition that this is an illness.
