Why We Need to Teach Mindfulness in a Digital Age | PBS

Why We Need to Teach Mindfulness in a Digital Age | PBS | Cuppa |

"Recent brain imaging studies reveal that sections of our brains are highly active during down time. This has led scientists to imply that moments of not-doing are critical for connecting and synthesizing new information, ideas and experiences. The average American consumes 34 gigabytes of content and 100,000 words every single day, according to the 2008 report from UC San Diego. To put these numbers in perspective, one gigabyte is a symphony in high-fidelity sound or a broadcast quality movie. In the midst of this multimedia blitzkrieg, the importance of mindfulness and focused attention is rising. If we can't cultivate mindfulness and focused attention while sitting quietly in a room, then how can we expect to bring these qualities of mind into turbulent circumstances -- both on and offline?

Howard, another cool find. Big fan of your writing. Smart mobs woke me up to the MOBILE imperative (and read like a racehorse runs :). Going to pick up Net Smart this weekend. Thanks, Marty

We can learn a lot from the way Sherlock Holmes trains his mind.

A good reminder about the power of simplicity of mind and spirit. In our hectic day-to-day, paring down to the simple task of peaceful exercise of meditation, can prove to be the "reboot" that we can all benefit from.

Very practical addition to the groundswell for mindfulness - it's about impulse control and emotional intelligence as well as spirituality. the same like David, the mind right set it so interested post
