Description

Amishi Jha studies how we pay attention: the process by which our brain decides what's important out of the constant stream of information it receives. Both external distractions (like stress) and internal ones (like mind-wandering) diminish our attention's power, Jha says -- but some simple techniques can boost it. "Pay attention to your attention," Jha says.

So umm...you created a "mindfulness training program" that you don't breakdown or give any useful details about at all. What's the point of this TedTalk? Listening to TED Talks is supposed to benefit the listeners right? "Incorporate mindfulness training..." but why didn't you list the steps that you claim were extremely beneficial for everyone you crossed paths with?!?! 🤔

Stacy Dickerson I was eating and thought to better devote my attention I should finish and even used better headphones then replayed this without distractions. And other than the N170 and facial swapping there are no other steps mentioned. I feel like this was just information overload. Now my mind is wandering. 😨
