A group of psychologists from the United States proved that it is better to live for today and to build optimistic plans for the future. Dreams tend not to come true, and thereby to upset the person. In some cases, destroyed fantasies can lead to depression.
Long-term plans is hampered to perceive reality for what it is. This is the conclusion of scientists in experiments involving pupils, students and adults.
Scientists have identified one pattern: the very young and elderly people, who had dreams of a bright future, was much stronger influenced by depression. Apparently, to make a start in life comes from more realistic goals instead of living in dreams.
