HOW MEDITATION IMPROVES ATTENTION!
Or in my case Attention Span! I am constantly jumping around between topics and ideas. About the only time I settle down in my brain (other than sleeping) is when I'm watching TV or reading a book and somehow I can tune things out then so I can focus only on that task. The following Article makes the case for using meditation for improving your attention. Wouldn't it be good to have the ability to concentrate on what you are doing and not be distracted? Maybe you already have this talent. I think that maybe many athletes and muscisians have developed it. Maybe it helps them to keep from choking...making mistakes. It's not only practice that makes perfect but concentration as well. When we get self conscious we loose focus, our attention is diverted from what we are doing. If meditation can help with that I'm all for it. Here is a link to the article on the Psychology Blog.. http://www.spring.org.uk/2009/05/how-meditation-improves-attention.php which has more information on this very interesting and perhaps mind enhancing topic!
