psychologist Daniel Goleman identifies three types of attention:

1. Warning inner aimed at self-awareness and self-control.

2. Warning outside - our ability to understand how the global system works.

3. attention to other, that is, in fact, the empathy with which we build relationships and career.

Each of these types has its own characteristics and mechanisms, and all of them, in the words of Daniel, we run the risk of losing.In his new book, "Focus", he tells us how to avoid the problem, develop the ability to concentrate and use it one hundred percent.

According to psychologist Sean Achora return the ability to focus and direct their attention to the right things to help meditation.The fact is that regular meditation has a positive effect on brain activity and allows it to better manage the process of perception.A team of researchers from Harvard found that during meditation, the brain ceases to randomly drive the thoughts and handle the usual amount of information.The characteristic for the state of active wakefulness beta rhythm fades.Because of this, after meditation, one is more focused, faster and cope better with the challenges.


Before you start meditating, you need to learn to concentrate - is one way to control your mind.To strengthen and improve the meditation, you need to learn to control the mind, because he was always busy with something.Even when you are sitting, your mind is constantly jumping around.

These and other meditative practices within the context of changes in the body during meditation gives a stunning effect, which applies to all subsequent human life.If you want to restore the ability to concentrate and strengthen the mind - take time to meditate every day.
