We want to understand how you think in your every day life (mind wandering), about the tasks that you are doing, the situations you are in and about your body. We also want to know more about how you recognize and react to your internal bodily sensations (interoception), and whether there are any links between these two things (mind wandering and interoception). If you would like to take part in the study it will involve push notifications being sent to your phone 8 times per day for 5 days via the Samply app, and each time you receive that notification you will need to click on a link to answer a brief set of questions (this will take approximately 3 minutes) as soon as possible after receiving the notification. If you are interested to take part, contact anna.crossland@york.ac.uk for more information and for the sign up link. *Please don't continue with the study unless you have contacted the researcher as your responses will not be stored unless you have registered with the study.*
