Paying Attention to Our Attention

In the last decade or two, we are learning more and more from neuroscience and are finally understanding how our brains work. And the most positive outcome is that we have found how mindfulness can actually change our brains.

In this TEDTalk, How To Tame Your Wandering Mind neuroscientist Amishi Jha sets out to answer these three questions:

  1. How does attention control our perception
  2. Why does it fail us often leaving us feeling foggy and distracted
  3. Can we do anything about this fogginess? Can we train our brain to pay better attention?

She explains what exactly is attention, and how we can reclaim it. Watch to learn about the powerful link between mindfulness, meditation and attention.
