Daniel Goleman is raising the ante with his new book on "Focus." He says, "the game has changed so much that we have to get conscious and intentional about something we took for granted" -- i.e. our ability to attend and focus.

 

Technology is invading our ability to attend at an alarming rate .  We need to develop tools to help us raise our awareness of what is going on in our mind and know how to bring it back. 

 

Turn off Facebook, Twitter, in fact turn off the computer for a day. No cell phone. If this makes you anxious, then it may be time to get some help in learning how to regain control of your mind.

Some great practices to help ensure our technological gadgets serve us rather than the other way round.

Technology can be an anxiety-producing energy depending on our approach. How we discipline ourselves and think about the daily onslaught of e-mail, voicemail, and text messages impacts how much we are truly connected or disconnected in our life. Mindfulness practices recommended in this article are very practical and impacts the quality of connections between people and their capacity to feel seen, heard and valued.
