From Buddhist monks to the early stages of psychology, attention has been deemed a vital element of success.
In a world vying for our attention, if we can become masters of this attention, we can lead happier more present lives.
Dr Joseph Cardillo is this week’s guest. He is a martial artist, doctor and author of: ’Body Intelligence – Harness Your Body’s Energies for Your Best Life’, ‘The Five Seasons’, ‘Your Playlist Can Change Your Life’, ‘Be Like Water’, ‘Bow to Life’ and the focus of today’s show Can I Have Your Attention? How to Think Fast, Find Your Focus and Sharpen Your Concentration’.
We explore some of the attention building exercises and processes outlined in his book and how we can reset our increasing attention deficit. We discuss how we can maximise our attention at work, in key moments where we are about to “lose our mind”.
We discuss how we can give our children the tools for better sleep as well as ourselves. We touch on how we can be victims of unintentional bias. Finally, Joseph emphasises the merits of meditation and the myriad benefits it can give us.
