Resolve To Master Attention - Dr. Amishi Jha [330]
Play • 1 hr 5 min

How often do we find ourselves not really paying attention to what we’re doing? We may be going through the motions, but we’re thinking about something else, not being fully present to what we’re doing. Today, I have a fascinating conversation with Dr. Amishi Jha, professor of psychology at the University of Miami and author of Peak Mind, about the impact a wandering mind has on our ability to live life fully and how we can use mindfulness to refocus our attention.

3 Takeaways:

  1. Mind-wandering is attention that is not present, in the here and the now.
  2. Greater mind wandering increases feelings of negativity.
  3. Mindfulness practice strengthens the systems of attention.
